This is a chocolate lovers' dream. Beautiful Ganong chocolate combined with some fantastic museum/chocolate science experiences. The exhibits are interesting and there is a lot of history about the Ganong family chocolate business. And, of course, free samples along the way. We stopped into the retail store on our way out of town, and the "gifts" we bought for others... More

Great experience both learning about chocolate and also tasting the generous samples left throughout the museum as you walk through.

As you walk through the museum you are constantly tasting chocolates. What a treat and well worth the price of admission. The difficulty came when leaving could not decide which chocolate to purchase so I decided to have a few more chocolates put into the box. Go there hungry for delicious treats.

I'm not a museum type of person but this small museum is well worth a visit. In addition to the lovely chocolate samples, hand dipped chocolate making takes place onsite. There is good use of audio and visual displays to inform patrons. Staff are friendly. Make sure to look for $1.00 off coupons on restaurant placemats in town.

Hadn't realized how close to the US we were till we drove down the street from here. We love chocolate so this was on our list of "must-sees." We were a bit taken back by the $10 entry fee, but in hindsight realized we probably ate that much chocolate. This family is the largest employer in the area, a real... More

Its $10 a person to walk thru 5 rooms with info on how this company came to be. They do offer free samples of about 10 varieties of chocolates but no sugar free one for the diabetic in the group. But you would be better to goggle it and buy a box of chocolates to share

We stopped here on our way back to the states for a break on our drive. We enjoyed hearing about the history of the family owned chocolate business. In addition to hearing about the entire chocolate making process, we got to sample the various chocolates as we toured. We finished up in the store and bought a few things to... More

Once you cross the border it is less than a mile on the right side of the street. This is an interesting stop on the makers of Ganging chocolates. They are the creators of the heart shaped box of candy given on valentines day. You can try their chocolates and tour their museum. We loved the chicken bone candy and... More

The chocolate museum is housed in the old Ganong chocolates factory. Interpretive panels and videos with a few interactive stops along the way talk about the history of chocolate and of the Ganong company. The highlight of course was all the chocolate samples one could try throughout the museum! We enjoyed our stop here.
