  • Very informative museum about the early uses of chocolate but gets repetitive after a while. The demonstration was only in french although the short video did have english subtitles. However the free ...  more »
  • Cheap attraction and entertaining tour. We follow the story of chocolate over the centuries. We enjoyed the demonstration made by a pastry chef! The chocolate sculptures are very impressive. A gourmet smell of chocolate followed us during the visit. Yum!

  • This is not a bad attraction to visit but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. We were visiting on a cold January day and spent a lot of time on the hop-on-hop-off bus (which had cold air blowing th...  more »

  • This was a great little surprise! Great info about the history of chocolate, a demonstration midway and a delicious hot chocolate sample. Another great find in the museum pass.
  • 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.
  • Best to go on Paris Pass, available on Viator. Cute museum with history of chocolate, small demonstration at the end, can sample chocolate from other parts of the world. Kids enjoyed. Quick visit.
  • It was a very nice experience especially taking part in the making of chocolate. I totally recommend this if you are in Paris.
  • Was skeptical about this museum, but it is actually a well made little building full of information! There are fine crockery and paintings for adults, and interactive games for children.
