If you expect a museum, you will only find some pictures. They mainly serve chocolate drinks. Sometimes long waiting row to get in

First, it is a perhaps a generous mistranslation to call this a Museum. This is a Chocolate Cafe with a good deal of Chocolate memorabilia. Get over it and enjoy the delicious chocolate. Hot or Cold. Either is good. There is a lot of interesting...More

It is awesome, between the cuban coffee and this hot chocolate is to die for. Old molds on how to do the chocolate and a lot of history.

We HAD to go to the chocolate museum! We have kids ... at least that was my excuse. When I saw the prices on the menu I became even more excited. However, a server walked up to us and said, "Only shakes. $2." So, my...More

We were taken here on a walking tour of Old Havana. Our tour guide used the impeccably clean bathroom. It really isn't much of a museum, but it was a great air conditioned, clean, and inviting spot to rest for a few minutes. Though it...More

No, it is not a museum. Just a few posters around the walls and some chocolate being mixed and then put into moulds. All the drinks are chocolate based and I thought good, made a change from alcohol and coffee.
