I had such a wonderful time at the museum. The girls and myself did the chocolate workshop with Victor, who was absolutely amazing and very knowledgeable about the history of cocoa/chocolate. It's definitely a great activity to do with your friends and/or family.

We put my 7 and 9 year olds in the short chocolate making class- and the loved it! Was both educational and super fun- and the chocolate was delicious- as were all the samples. Highly recommend! Staff was great too!

Interesting but small exhibition telling you how chocolate is made. Friendly and helpful staff on hand to answer questions. Lots of opportunities to taste chocoalte and related products. If you have time you can even make your own chocolate!
