  • The Chocolate Museum has amazing employees whom are polite and very kind. You get to learn so much during your just. Great place for all ages. It's a must do while you are in St Stephen.
  • Learned a lot about chocolate and the history of the business in town. Fewer taste testers than past years, but a worthwhile visit.
  • I felt the price was high for this type of tour - $30 for a family of four. That being said, my children did enjoy it and I found it informative. It was a nice stop to break up our drive. You also get to try up to four free chocolates.
  • We stopped here on a lark and boy are we glad we did?! The self guided tour through the museum was very well laid out and had lots of great information. The best part were the samples of chocolate you could have in every room, I highly recommend it!
  • Disappointed...10 bucks each to get in, 2 free chocolates each and a couple of free chicken bones. We went during chocolate fest and we were expecting a little bit more that that. The museum itself was basically a self promotion of the Ganong name...an interactive infomercial....that you pay to see. Would not recommend..go to grandma's instead, she will give you more than just 2 :).
