Very interesting exhibition about biology of cocoa, history of chocolates and how to make chocolates. A bit expensive compared other museums.

It's a beautiful place! From the history of the discovery of the cocoa bean (there is even a small greenhouse with the right temperature, humidity level, the right soil), to the modern production machines and the opportunity to taste the product at various stages - you have the opportunity to see and feel everything in person. It's great and the museum is definitely worth a visit! I recommend it) Hi. Russians are also against the war in Ukraine. You don't know what it is like to disperse rallies in Russia. The courts work around the clock. For participating in a rally, at best you will get 15 days in a cell with real prisoners, imagine that. To understand how the protesters are treated, remember Belarus. People are maimed just for going to a rally. We are hostages. We almost became North Korea. Most of us are terrified of what is happening. Be aware of this and please do not hate ordinary citizens
Fun for all ages. Great interactive exhibits. Lots of tasty free chocolate. Accessible for nut allergy sufferers too, like me, as the chocolate only contains traces. Loved it! Great shop and cafe to enjoy the chocolate even more and sit down somewhere pretty, next to the river.
Nothing less than 5-star! This place is an absolute must visit when in Köln. It includes a lot of interesting information about cocoa plants, a mini chocolate factory, a small tropical garden and much more. Furthermore you get free chocolates, even ones made right in front of you! Definitely one of my best museum experiences. With the Köln City Card, you can avail a 20% discount and purchase the ticket for 10.5€.
The Chocolate Museum is one of the places to visit when you arrive in Cologne. The reason is a tiny million, and what was best for me was the tiny sneak peak in how the chocolate factory works from the beginning of the process all the way to distribution. The interesting thing is that you can consume chocolate directly from the machine and complete the experience of the chocolate factory. I heartily recommend that you go through the quiz from the entrance to the exit of the museum, because this knowledge will give you certain benefits in the end. I think this is a great thing for all students who come solo, in pairs or as a team and want to get away from the hectic everyday life.
Very impressive and informative displays from farming to the final chocolate treats! Plenty of room to wander from one area to the next, fascinating machinery and yummy samples! So much information we may not know about the world impact of the chocolate business. Amazing artifacts and interactive for children. Ends in a gift shop with sooo many ways to satisfy the palate!
