  • Nice visit. Very good explanations, lots of photos, we see the work of the workshop and there is a video. End tasting / sales. For a dark chocolate lover, I recommend this brand: very good quality.

  • First of all, I would not recommend this museum to any non-French speaking people. Before paying entry (6 euros/adult), we were assured there were descriptions in English. We were then given four tiny pieces of chocolate to sample and directed into a room where we were shown a really old-fashioned film clip about how chocolate is made... it was completely in French. To be fair, we were provided with a pamphlet that summarized the movie in English, but it was extremely brief and difficult to read while watching the film simultaneously. The rest of the tour consisted of four rooms of old machinery, chocolate boxes and advertisements that were amusing, but not exactly worth the entry fee.... Also, there were maybe 5-6 descriptions in both English and Spanish, yet probably 30 or so in French. At the end, we got a couple small sips of their hot chocolate, which was rich but not the best. The tour ended in their little chocolate shop with some of the most expensive chocolate I've ever seen.
  • Shabby! We pay admission € 6.50 and it reminds us of a small pocket with 4 tablet of chocolate and a voucher for a hot chocolate at the end. The visit is expected to last 1 hour, it took us 20 minutes max. It begins with a small explanatory film of 10 minutes which must date from the 1970s, then visit the 'Museum' consisting of 2 rooms with expose of mussels to chocolates, sculptures in very ugly chocolate, without any finesse, and finally advertising plates. A few small explanatory panels without great interest. And finally, the tasting of hot chocolate... Dripping! This must be the Van houten and water... And here it is, nothing more... not even a demo, or of real chocolates to taste... How to get ripped off in 20 minutes...

  • a very small museum. a boring movie and viello initially then a room with old boxes of chocolate in the window and a second room with the first moulds chocolate and chocolate tour is done in 10 min taking sculptures are time ban to take pictures. The tasting of chocolate at the end was good though I lai found too sweet but it n engages only me. as regards l Home l host friendly but to shop not the all kind and exorbitant prices a piece of cake basque €4.50! I absolutely do not recommend! Biarritz's beach is beautiful however attention to the rock under water because the waves are very strong.

  • Interesting and not too expensive. Very nice home. However the chocolate sold in the shop is rather expensive.

  • According to the last opinion. We lost 6€ 50 to see a film and two not very informative presentations. This is not at all true them. Very good reception, however.
