  • Went to the Chocolate museum with a group of my students when visiting Paris from Canada. Compared to many other pastry or chocolate classes in the area, the school group chocolate making class here had the best prices, and included admission. The 90 minute class was excellent and my students had so much fun making different kinds of chocolate. They would have been up to more challenging techniques as well, but those were not offered to them as part of the student class, but that did not dampen the fun in any way. The museum itself took about 15 minutes total to walk through, and I don't believe would have been worth the price of admission. However, the chocolate demonstration in the test kitchen by the chocolatier was excellent, and there were many samples to taste that made it worth waiting for the demo. Overall we really enjoyed ourselves.
  • If you're after a rainy-day activity in Paris during your visit, this is a fascinating and different attraction that brings you through the history of chocolate: from the mayans to the present day. The museum itself also sells various chocolate-making accessories that are great to get started making your own treats. the staff are very helpful, and speak both french and english.
  • About 2 blocks downhill from Sacré-Coeur. Notre Dame and Eiffel Tower sculpted in chocolate, among others. Great place to buy gifts. Good packaging.
  • A little disappointed in the chocolate making class, since it was just pretty much assembly. Museum is small, but it has everything you could want to know about chocolate and cacao.
  • Paris can be a bit much to take with the long lines at the common attractions, which is why when we visit we try to find new places that aren't in every tourist book out there. We got a tip about Choco-Story from a good source, and it sounded like a great time for our family. The museum portion has quite a bit of history and data, if you want to absorb all of it, it'll take time. For the kids, there's a fun set of tasks to complete which gets them a neat reward after the tour. We all loved it! The demo portion was also well worth it. Samples of some very high-end chocolates were passed around, and it was a real treat to get a taste of some rare chocolates. The chocolatier who conducted the demonstration was terrific, and made it engaging and fun. And in the end, there were a lot more yummy sweets to try! If you want a fun time and can't deal with lines, I really recommend Choco-story. It's absolutely worth the trip.
