  • 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...

  • First of all, I would not recommend this museum to any non-French speaking people. Before paying entry (6 euros/adult), we were assured there were descriptions in English. We were then given four tiny pieces of chocolate to sample and directed into a room where we were shown a really old-fashioned film clip about how chocolate is made... it was completely in French. To be fair, we were provided with a pamphlet that summarized the movie in English, but it was extremely brief and difficult to read while watching the film simultaneously. The rest of the tour consisted of four rooms of old machinery, chocolate boxes and advertisements that were amusing, but not exactly worth the entry fee.... Also, there were maybe 5-6 descriptions in both English and Spanish, yet probably 30 or so in French. At the end, we got a couple small sips of their hot chocolate, which was rich but not the best. The tour ended in their little chocolate shop with some of the most expensive chocolate I've ever seen.
  • Love this museum and it's great boutique.
