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 signage was in French, German, and English. Its a short stop, but I'd do it... More

A poor experience for us. It starts with a video in a dedicated room, with a potentially long enough wait to start. There follows a walk through the history of chocolate (with a slant on the parent company), passing through a series of scenes enacted by the whirring waxwork figures of my youth/nightmares. The 3yo was terrified. The 5yo was... More

Got served 4 tastings in a box and then received an introduction on video. Museum you walk yourself around in and you can download an audio guide of poor quality. Have a nice train car , where you can eat , but we were informed that the kitchen just was closed when we arrived. Service level is low and you... 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 their chocolate. At the end it feels more like visiting a chocolate factory with a... 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 It is outdated, tatty and certainly does not provide any value for money.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 middle of nowhere, especially if you are travelling there by public transport. It takes a...

Hello, We are doing our best to invite our visitors to discover the world of chocolate : prior to the visit itself, our visitors receive several chocolates to learn how to taste a fine chocolate. Then the visit of the Museum delivers precious explanations on the chocolate fabrication – from the cocoa bean to the chocolate bar- the packaging evolution...... 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 went there there were very few people there apart from us but we enjoyed it.... More

small museum with mostly enthousiastic guides, the museum is old fashioned however. We did not get a good explanation of the 2 options (visit museum + tasting session or visit museum + making a chocolate fish for children) so we were " stuck" with the fish which is clearly for young children.

We like single theme museums, such as "rice", "salt", and now "chocolate". Gave a good historical and botanical overview of chocolate, from the bean to the end product. We received a nice bag of chocolate at the end of the self directed tour. There was also an enjoyable live demonstration of chocolate making. We liked it.

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 of money (32 euros for a family of four).
