This museum had displays on the history of chocolate and a short demonstration on how to make it. However, I felt that the entrance fee was too high (9 euros per adult, only a discount of 1 euro for seniors and students) and the marketing for the Belgian chocolate supplier was not at all subtle. This museum might be a good diversion for kids (although the exhibits aren't especially engaging) but if you have limited time in Paris, don't waste your money visiting.

It has been one of the shortest museum visits that our family experienced. Firstly, the museum is tiny and is a size of a coffee shop. The tickets are seriously overpriced at 9 euros pp and the articles for display are not interesting or engaging enough. We were attracted by the brochure showing beautiful garments made out of chocolate. When we arrived at the museum there were NONE (the museum representative said it was 'a temporary exhibition'), but a few plastic pieces for children in addition to a few very old historic sceneries related to chocolate history. It was not engaging or exciting in any way, very small and overcrowded. The little chocolate shop at the end (or beginning of the space, almost the same area) was very overpriced too... Do not bother to visit, as it takes a while to get there, but very difficult to spend more than 10-15 mins inside as there it nothing much to do...

My family and I thought this was one of the most interesting museums! There is a lot of reading but well worth it as we learned some neat facts about chocolate. We were also there for a cooking demonstration with yummy samples. The cook that did the demo was a really witty fellow and he was enjoyable to watch.
I highly recommend paying for the hot chocolate at the end. It was super!
Overall, great experience. Also, you can buy some fun chocolate items at the end.

It was not part of our plan, we discovered one day when we were walking to Opera from our apartment. We went in and figured that it was some Euro 9 per adult and decided to go. We were given choco chips to taste at the entrance. The museum starts with discovery of Coaca and how it traveled from South America to Europe. It is very interesting with lots of pictures depicting the story.

It has three parts - discovery, evolution and demonstration.

The making of chocolate is very interesting. My daughter enjoyed tasting the Coaca man shaped chocolate at the end of the demonstration (happens every 20 minutes).

It was an enjoyable visit.

We were in the area to visit the Wax Museum, which is only 5 minutes away, and decided to visit here, as we had Paris Pass. It was surprisingly enjoyable, and we found it more fun than the Wax Museum. There is a sheet for children to complete with stickers as they go round, and they get a chocolate lolly if they complete it. There is a demonstration with chocolate and some samples to try. The shop at the end of the trip sells the obvious, but also has several different hot chocolates to buy, and drink there - which we did. The Spanish hot choc was totally lovely. Staff on duty were really helpful and friendly - we enjoyed the visit and would recommend it.
