  • It is a good place to visit, you can see all the real-time chocolate manufacturing process. A little expensive but it is worth visiting it.

  • Very very expensive, not sure if it was worth it. the ques were ages for the samples and the museum was highly boring, you could find better things to do. Still go to the caffee.  more »
  • All chocolate history, from plantation to chocolate factory where chocolate is made and packaged. You can see a small rain forest and many pictures and video of chocolate production. Not bad, but you ...  more »

  • This place was cool! The entrance was a little pricey (9€ for students). You learn about the conditions and production of cacao and after there are machines that show you how they're made. We had a lot of fun! You can also make you own chocolate for 5€! They also have a cafe where you can sit right next to the river! Worth visiting!
  • I've been to better chocolate museums. This had some nice features including a greenhouse area with cocoa plants and a lot of historical items. Would have liked to see more of a working factory but overall it was fairly good.
  • LAST ENTRY AT 17:00 The opening hours everywhere say 18:00, but we couldn't get in because we got here at 17:05 and last entry is at 17:00. THAT is important information... I realize it's not "fair" to give it 1 star but their website must be updated to be VERY clear.
  • Great place to take the kids! Free samples of chocolate plus so much knowledge about not only the process of turning cocoa beans into chocolate but also the many facets concerning the chocolate industry, make this site a must see! They have a cafe as well if you need real food before the sweet stuff or after a walk through your mouth is set on dessert!
  • I nice surprise! The museum is actually huge, there's really lots to see. You can smell, taste and see chocolate been made. The shop at the entrance makes any chocoholic crazy :P
