  • Nice museum with extensive history on how chocolate was discovered, how it spread around the world, and of course how cocoa and chocolate are made. The exhibits are great and the audio tour really well done. There's not a lot of interactive stuff going on though. I've been to a variety of chocolate museums in different countries, and this one looked the newest, shiniest, but had the fewest tasting stations. There's really only one place at the end, where they do a little presentation of how to make filled chocolates (it really just how to fill the moulds, they don't go through the chocolate and filling making process) where you can taste a few different varieties of chocolate buttons. It's nice, just a bit sterile without the level of interaction I'm used to from other chocolate museums.
  • Nice museum with very detailed (sometimes too much detailed) information. Also some free chocolate in the end and the demonstration (not that spectacular one in an overcrowded room). If you are planning to take the audio guide (which is recommended, a lot of languages are supported), bring the headphones and expect to spend there 2 - 2.5 hours. 1 hour is definitely not enough, don’t come on 4 pm. It took us around 15 minutes waiting in the queue on Saturday afternoon, despite we had the tickets already. One line is for all, not so well organized.
