Chocolate heaven.

As a chocolate lover this was an interesting visit. First was the demonstration in the basement to the artifact on the first floor showing the history going back to the Egyptians.

Owned by a Belgian company, and naturally pushes their product The samples given if front were a bit stale. Self Guided tour was ok with memorabilia and funny displays from Playmobil. Chocolate demonstration was good but my wife knew more about it that the Demonstrator. (Granted she made deserts for "Tavern on the Green" at one time) e bought some... More

its ten minutes exhibition with in some cases playmobiles to be demonstrated in order to give a picture to the visitor how the coco used. With 11 euros sb could visit much much better museums! It is worth a little bit only if you have a child below 7 years old. Also the chocolate drink was awful. For me the... More

Dear Angelikibr, First, I'd like to thank you for visiting us and leaving us a review. By reading you, we are guessing that you unfortunately didn't see the whole museum. With 3 floors, 50 displays, and a live demonstration (15 minutes by itself), there is no way you could complete all of this within 10 minutes. Regarding your hot chocolate,... More

My son loves chocolate so thought this would be a great visit and we weren't disappointed. On arrival we were met with a very helpful member of staff who offered us chocolate samples. We then opted for a hot chocolate drink as an extra €3.00 The exhibition is not as good as York chocolate story or cadburys but it was... More

A really interesting place to visit showing the history of chocolate from Mayans through to the present day. Some chocolate models of the Arc De Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. A display of moulding chocolate, plenty of samples and a shop to buy some gifts.

We stopped in because it was near our train station, we needed a time killer, and it was free with our Paris pass. The kids really enjoyed it and we all got hot chocolate at the end of our time.

We went because the children thought it would be a good place to go. They were right. This is an interesting museum covering the history of chocolate from the time of the Aztecs all the way through to the present day. As well as the museum, we also went to the demonstration (where we were shown how pralines were made... More

The museum is quite boring, avoid it if you do not have much time. The only positive thing was the free chocolate.

Musée Gourmand du Chocolat was one great museum, especially for chocolate lovers like me. A short description in French, English and Spanish accompanies every picture showing the steps of the creation of chocolate, statues and elements to support all explanations are present and, not forgetting the little ones, a play mobile adventure game to learn more about the creation of...
