Boring film all in French. Small museum filled with artefacts you can't touch or even take pictures of - not that anyone would be very interested in seeing photos of them.

The lady at the end serving the hot chocolate (you are given a tiny tasting cup) was very rude and basically shooed you out of the museum even though you had only been in there about 10 minutes. Don't bother going. Shop is too expensive and you only get to taste 3 small pieces of chocolate for free.

Really enjoyed this museum. While it was compact it was full of very interesting objects and illustrated the development of chocolate through the use of a short film (in French, but it was easy to follow if you didn't have the language). The moulds and posters were so varied and showed chocolate and attitudes towards it through the ages. The sample of chocolate and little cup of hot chocolate were delicious! The shop was full of amazing chocolate although it was a tad pricey.

Interesting museum with all old labels, machines, etc...
The film at the beginning informs you of the process to make chocolate. Great samples of home made chocolate when you buy your entrance ticket.
The choc shop is beautiful but pretty pricey.

If you are on Biarritz, I would definitely recommend a visit to the Chocolate Museum.

We found the video very interesting to understand how chocolate is made - from plantation to the shop, and the old signs, moulds, etc. were very interesting.

The shot of delicious hot chocolate at the end of the tour was a nice touch too.

This is the ideal activity if the weather is mixed. Recommended!
