Small museum about the making of chocolate. Start with a tasting through a film. Funny. A little bit expensive for the package, but if you like chocolate then it's just ok. Friendly staff

The museum is a bit far out from Strasbourg, but only 20 minutes from the city center by car. It started with a video about how to taste chocolate, which was comical, then explained the history of chocolate while showing some industry specific machinery. Most...More

This "museum" is located in the suburbs of Strasbourg and the only way to get there is by car. The exhibit is well done and there is some interesting information about chocolate but nothing worth the trip... they also quickly show you how they make...More

I gave this museum one star and this is purely for the shop and its fantastic chocolate! The museum itself however, is a waste of time. It is outdated, tatty and certainly does not provide any value for money. It is essentially out in the...More

First thing's first, the museum is outside the main city of Strasbourg and if travelling there by public transport it will take you ages (combination of trams and buses). If staying in Strasbourg city centre the museum is probably not worth the journey. When we...More

Exorbitant prices - 8 euros per person to go round a small exhibition which at the end leads to their boutique so you can buy their chocolate. In total, it's moire of a shop than a museum. Definitely would not recommend, waste of a lot...More
