  • I wouldn't say it was the best museum I ever visited. If you're a chocolate lover, it can be quite nice to visit it, you'll learn everything about the history of chocolate. You'll get free chocolate w...  more »

  • Not a must visit site... but it can be interesting. Your choice.
  • 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.
  • Very nice, the guide (which must be the owner) made a very nice visit with detailed explanations. We see that she is passionate and it does everything. You will see old authentic machines to make molded chocolates and besides they are still turning! You have a small bag of chocolates with your ticket and a tasting of hot chocolate at the end Attention, the announced visit duration is one hour, but you can't not more than 45 minutes.
