  • We would have liked to visit this Museum of chocolate... but it is closed until February 3, 2017. Too bad that the Museum Internet site does not mention this annual closure (see the screenshot). This saved us a 2 hour drive round trip for nothing. The shop is open, the staff is friendly, and we bought some chocolates... no small gesture for the inconvenience. Frankly, should show a little more respect for their potential visitors. Either we have a website that is updated or well it says "Please call for our schedule" if we are not able to update his site. But putting in fact misinformation on a site, it is well there is worse.

  • Pass in the corner, I stopped at this museum. Small but pretty well supplied. Quickly, they are encouraged to join the shop area where it is difficult to not resist after the visit and in the sight of all those lovely chocolates. And there, big disappointment, not a tile to taste, too bad...

  • Locate this museum on the internet by making a visit to Biarritz. It has a small car park for customers which is filled with very few cars, but given the low influx of people I don't think to be problem. We entered without any problems. Once you pay the entrance you delivered a bag with chocolate coating (black, white and milk). They project a video on chocolate and followed go to see the private museum/collection. It has very interesting things, but children people were bored Presidency enough, is a bit "dull" see even if they have interesting material. To the end the visit, before leaving by the shop, you gave with a cup of chocolate hot. To us we had Madagascar if I remember correctly and was exquisite. A couple of things we buy in the store and already, visit finished.

  • 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.
  • It is curious to see how advanced the chocolate and entries are chocolates at the end give you a hot chocolate that is buenismo

  • The limit of the scam... Avoid absolutely... Even chocolate hot "deguste" had bad taste!

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