A very interesting introduction to the history of cacao and chocolade industry. Plentiful of historical objects to be seen in the museum. Facts and amusement in a very comfortable combination. Special thanks to the design Lady who guided us with passion into the secret life...More

As diehard chocolate lovers this was an interesting place to visit. A bit disorganized, the chocolate molds, posters and sculptures were fun to see. The movie was a bit elementary, okay for kids, and played in many different languages. Good way to kill an hour...More

I wouldn't say it was the best museum I ever visited. If you're a chocolate lover, it can be quite nice to visit it, you'll learn everything about the history of chocolate. You'll get free chocolate with your entry ticket. The museum is quite small,...More

A small place with lots of chocolate statues and moulds and an interesting history. The chocolate ticket and hot chocolate to finish are very good and we ended up spending loads, the products at eye great but dear

Probably one of the more informative and interesting museums of this type. A short video on the history of chocolate making in Europe is well supported by chocolate artifacts from the 1900s. Samples of chocolate and small chocolate drink are included in the entrance fee.

The museum is understated but interesting to a point. I wouldn't have wanted to travel miles to visit but as it was down the road from where we were staying we went.

The museum is quite small, it has only 3 rooms for the exposition, room for the animation and a possibility to see the "kitchen". All at all the atmosphere is nice, at the entrance as a small bonus the local chocolate is given.
