We enjoyed walking around the museum and watching the various videos. There are samples of chocolate around different areas. It cost us $46 to get in ( 2 adults and 3 kids). We thought it was a pricey for a family of 5.

When you in or near St. Stephen do stop by the Chocolate Museum. It is hard to resist chocolate and learning about the history and tasting some is a bonus here.

This was an interesting little museum that’s made up of equal parts history of chocolate, the science of chocolate making and promotion of the family business. But all and all, the displays were well presented and interesting. And there are free chocolate samples throughout the...More
