We took our 10 and 6 year olds to the chocolate museum. The 14 minute video was available in English and was interesting. We were given 'complimentary' chocolate buttons (5 each) and a small authentic hot chocolate drink. The museum was interesting, but at 23Euro for the 4 of us, it was expensive!

A small place with lots of chocolate statues and moulds and an interesting history. The chocolate ticket and hot chocolate to finish are very good and we ended up spending loads, the products at eye great but dear

Probably one of the more informative and interesting museums of this type. A short video on the history of chocolate making in Europe is well supported by chocolate artifacts from the 1900s. Samples of chocolate and small chocolate drink are included in the entrance fee.

The museum is understated but interesting to a point. I wouldn't have wanted to travel miles to visit but as it was down the road from where we were staying we went.

The museum is quite small, it has only 3 rooms for the exposition, room for the animation and a possibility to see the "kitchen". All at all the atmosphere is nice, at the entrance as a small bonus the local chocolate is given.

A bit out the way and there is parking down the road but not big otherwise it is in town to park and walk back. Collection of chocolate related items including millions of chocolate moulds, old advertising, loads of old chocolate boxes and bars and old machinery. There is a film all in French. You do get an English text.... More

This museum is just a short walk from the beach. Fantastic history about chocolate. The ticket even comes with 4 pieces of different chocolate! Some interesting historical items to see and read about. We got some nice hot chocolate drinks at the end and bought some pieces of chocolate in the wee shop. Worth a visit, especially if you like...

We thought it was very unique. Lots of history. My son really enjoyed his time there. It was a quick tour, but very interesting. We wished to see the factory, but we were told that they were closing. They close the museum at 12:30pm and reopen it at 2pm.
