The museum is interesting and self-guided, but you are learning about the history of chocolate so you should not expect to be very "wowed" by it. There are lots of free samples throughout but the part that makes it worthwhile is the demonstration. Very neat...More

The chocolate is amazing. The place is okay and gives you some info on how chocolate started and arrived to our land. At the end of the tour you get to see how chocolate is made and that can be interesting for chocolate lovers.
