We were interested in this museum and happened in in between school field trips. While it seems to be a duplicate of the Choco-story in Belgium. As it is a tourist based museum all of the displays and information were in French, English, and Spanish. At various parts of the museum there are chocolate disc dispensers that you are allowed to sample from as you read about how and why they were made. At the end before exiting through the gift shop a chef provides a demonstration on how they create filled chocolates and the steps and tools it takes to create the chocolates we eat. Very informative displays and the snacks throughout were a great touch. If your kids complete the play mobil challenge they can get a special treat in the gift shop at the end.

Choco Story is a small museum where you actually get to learn, taste, and make chocolate treats. We happen to visit on a cold wet Paris day and our timing couldn’t have been better. We were the only tourist around for the first two hours giving us a private lesson on how to make chocolates and devour as many samples as we liked.We weren’t in any hurry that day and decided to let our kids learn how to make chocolate. It was such an amazing experience as we were the only ones in the room. They donned aprons and got a personalized french lesson on chocolate candies. It was hard for our youngest not to devour everything in site. The lesson was so fun and we even got to package up our chocolates to take with us. The location is off the beaten path, but you can read my full review over on my blog. It was a great experience.

This museum was an amazing visit that all the family enjoyed. The staff were friendly and we were kept entertained for over 2 hours. Children are given a small chocolate gift for completing the quiz booklet and you can eat as much chocolate as you want. There is also a demonstration where you can see chocolates being made and then you get to eat them. The museum tells the history of chocolate from over 600 years ago. There is free Wi-Fi and you can download the audio guide for free. As a chocolate lover I really enjoyed the visit and would very much recommend it.

A relatively new attraction to Paris, it is a nice stop on any tour. Good for a family and good for a quick stop; easily done in an hour's time. On a main thoroughfare and near the metro, the store-front museum is two floors of the evolution of chocolate, agriculturally, nutritionally and culturally. A particularly interesting part of the exhibit is for those interested in porcelain, china and other service pieces. A demonstration of chocolate making is nice, with a charming young chef, but pretty short in duration - however you do leave having eaten your fill. A small gift shop is available, but with relatively few options for purchase. They need to stock more delectables! A nice stop on any visit to Paris. Who does not like chocolate?!
