This is not a museum is a shop with the history of the cafe hanging from walls. Not very nice service, maybe we came here on a bad time.
My kids (2,4&6) had a great time learning about chocolate and making it! Staff was kind and very engaging. We had a great time!
My sister and I had so much fun at the Choco Museum in Granada. We participated in the chocolate-making workshop, which was taught by Ishmael. He was amazing. He showed us how to roast the cacao beans, mash them into a paste, add ingredients, and make 3 types of hot chocolate - Mayan, Aztec and European. Then we got to... More
We've done other chocolate classes in Central/South America and this one was certainly one of the best executed. Ismel (sp?) was a wonderful, energetic teacher. Learned a lot and recommend highly.
This great experience cost us a total of US$19. Kenny was our instructor and he made the next 3 hours a tremendous fun. 3 people in our group started out and soon 3 more joined us. You learn so much as there are posters all over the walls in several rooms. It truly is a museum of information. We made... More
This museum is in the 'lobby' of the Granada Hotel & Spa, on the main business street (Atravesada). There are plenty of displays, live cacao trees (with blossoms and fruit pods), posters, and an opportunity to make your own chocolate bar. Posters explain the history, spread, manufacture, and uses of chocolate, as well as ecology of cacao production. There is... More
If you have ever wondered where our favorite guilty please comes from and how it's made your questions will be answered here! You might even get a taste of the fruit that the seeds come from that make that addictive coco powder we all love and crave! The fruit taste nothing like chocolate! You can learn all about the plant... More
What I thought was a museum turned out to be a hands on chocolate making experience where we roasted the cacao beans, made three types of chocolate drinks, and finally a chocolate bar. The instructor was fun, bilingual and informative. Great for children and adults!
This isn't a museum like you might think. It is more of a chocolate store attached to a hotel and cafe that happens to have some information on chocolate history hanging on the walls. You can take chocolate making classes for $19 for 2 hours (as of Nov 2013) which is pretty cheap if you have the time and desire.... More
Thank you for visiting ChocoMuseo. I wonder how you left with the impressions that it was "a cafe with some information about the history of chocolate hanging on the walls". The pre-history and history of cacao and chocolate are only one part of the exposition. We also have an extensive section on the botany of cacao, as well as a... More
It is small but has a lot of info about the origin of chocolate. Plus you can sample when you come in. Try their crepe with their chocolate..delicious. Also, they offer workshops that looked really interesting..but you need to pay for them.
