I had hopes for a visit to become a fun activity but it is only a pricy shop with nothing special and the chocolate there wasn't even that good.

Nice place, definitely worth spending 10 minutes looking at the souvenir shop and free museum (actually café with exhibits). If you want a coffee shop break, this is a great place for it. They do 2-hour workshops where you can "make your own" chocolate. Unfortunately it's not really possible to make your own solid chocolate without waiting lots of hours... More

If you wanna bring tasty chocolate from Guatemala as a souvenir, why not creating it on your own? We did the workshop and it was really nice and interesting (and tasty). Good experience which I would do again.

Spent more than an hour shopping at the store, learning how chocolate is made and then tasting a great hot chocolate. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Would recommend for a visit

This is not a museum, but a wonderful collection of chocolate. We were able to participate in a class which was fun and delightful, plus we were able to take our creations home. The instructor was quite experienced and made the class a lot of fun. Working with chocolate can be messy. We were also able to learn more about... More

The museum is tiny but SOOOO full of amazing and interesting info, if you like chocolate then you should go and learn about the journey of the chocolate that you eat. Ever seen a chocolate tree? go there they have a model, really enjoyed this.
