This is really just a shop, with a tiny section on how to make chocolate and coffee at the start. However, you can't take your time to look at this yourself, you are taken up by a 'guide' and rushed through it so fast you can barely understand what they are saying. After about 1 minute of being talked at... More

This was actually nice because we got to taste chocolate types and even buy at the end. The staff were welcoming and friendly and we learnt a lot about the history of cocoa in Malaysia. Probably took about 15mins so wasn't a hassle.

Saleswoman rushed us so quickly through the museum section to the retail section, no attempt to build rapour with us or give us any information. If you go here, ignore the workers and look at your own pace but chocolate is very expensive anyways. Not worth the visit.

The "tour" lasts about five minutes and then you are taken to the retail area where you are shown products. The best part is that they do give you samples of the chocolates they sell. This is a chocolate shop dressed up in a museum cloak. Don't bother. If you want chocolate, just go to any of the bakeries in... More

This id nog s museum, it's a coffee and chocolate shop with a little exibition and coffee/ chocolate testing. Girls are really good in sales, you can't resist! My faves are white and dark chocolate, white coffee. Free entry, pricy stuff.

Drawings and displays explain history of coffee and chocolate cultivation and processing. Not fancy, but informative. Gift shop is fancier.... varied and fancy items for sale in the gift shop for consumption and for presents.

Definitely it is a tourists trap. But the quality of products and services are not bad. Plus if you are really burnt by the heat and Sun, they gave a small cafe (selling fruit juice, tea and ice cream) for you to escape for a while.

This is not a museum! It's a shop selling expensive local chocolates and coffee. The chocolates taste good though. Someone will show you around and let you try samples.

I was not impressed with this "museum" because all it showed was how coffee and chocolate are made by paintings on the walls. It was free but the chocolate was expensive at the end. I would skip this place.
