  • Great history of the chocolate factory in St. Stephen.
  • Great place a must for anyone in the area
  • Not a lot of museum. Plenty of chocolate, though. Heaping bowls of chocolates throughout the museum. The actual displays were pretty dull and quick to zip through. If you're going to buy chocolate anyway, you might want to skip the museum and head straight to the store up front. Probably the most interesting part of the museum for me were the old boxes they had, from the old days.
  • History and chocolate, what's not to love? Watching the chocolates hand dip the Ganong chocolates and seeing how everything is made from the cocoa bean into a delicious treat was educational and fun!
  • Informative and entertaining.
