Lots of samples here and they carry all types of chocolate. I only saw the store portion - wasn't sure if there was also a museum. Good for a few minutes to check out - especially if you like chocolate.

The main draw of this place is the chocolate they sell instead of learning any content regarding chocolate. They do have a room dedicated to telling you about chocolate and how it's prepared. The information is light. A larger portion is dedicated to selling different...More

This place was too popular to really enjoy. There were so many people stuffed into the store, that I had to leave. The chocolate that I tasted wasn't anything special.

It's a branding joke to call this a museum. It's a store with some photos depicting how cocoa grows, and some people who grow it. It's nice decor for a store. But that's all it is. Not worth a special trip. But in your wandering,...More
