Very informative museum about the early uses of chocolate but gets repetitive after a while. The demonstration was only in french although the short video did have english subtitles. However the free chocolate sample was very tasty. The chocolate available in the gift shop at the end was fairly expensive however the hot chocolate more than made up for this.... More

This is not a bad attraction to visit but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. We were visiting on a cold January day and spent a lot of time on the hop-on-hop-off bus (which had cold air blowing through it) so we welcomed the opportunity to get inside for a bit. This museum has a few... More

Me and my girlfriend visited Choco Story a few days ago as one of our last activities before leaving Paris. For starters we took to metro to Bonne Nouvelle which is really convenient as we come out just a few steps from the entrance to the museum. On arrival the staff were really polite and fluent in both English and... More

We went to the museum with our 3 children. Our girls were very keen to go so we agreed to paying over 50 euro. My daughters loved completing their little booklet and we all really enjoyed learning about the history of chocolate. The museum part is done very well. The demonstration of making pralines was ok. I would have given... More

Dear Visitor, Thank you for visiting our museum. We are happy you and your children enjoyed it. We are sorry that you had to rate us that low because of the price, but, for sure we can't compete with the Louvres or other public places as we are a private museum, with high costs in Paris and of course no...

My original plan was to visit the Catacombes, but I didn't buy a pre-paid ticket and so the wait for the Catacombes was very long. So instead of wasting the day, I decided to visit Musée Gourmand du Chocolat - Choco-Story. It was surprisingly not bad. Love learning how chocolate has evolved over time and how it's was seen by...

Dear Chocolate-lover, Thank you for your comment, we really appreciate to have positive testimonies of our visitors. We are just surprised as your rate of 3/5 doesn't reflect your comment, maybe a different way to rate than us (3 can be the top of your rates ;) ) Best regards, Fabrice Stijnen Director More

Had an organised University excursion here, however we told we were going to a chocolate factory and were going to have a demonstration and chocolate tastings. Arriving and seeing we were at a chocolate museum, was obviously a big shock. Putting this aside, my friends and I tried to enjoy ourselves. We had the demonstration first which was very disappointing,... More

As a chocolate lover this was an interesting visit. First was the demonstration in the basement to the artifact on the first floor showing the history going back to the Egyptians.

Dear Visitor, First of all, thank you for your comment. Let me inform you that Belcolade, belgian company, is our supporter, but in no way our owner, even if we have close links and enjoy their wonderful chocolate. Regarding chocolate, they can't get bad.

its ten minutes exhibition with in some cases playmobiles to be demonstrated in order to give a picture to the visitor how the coco used. With 11 euros sb could visit much much better museums!

Dear Angelikibr, First, I'd like to thank you for visiting us and leaving us a review. By reading you, we are guessing that you unfortunately didn't see the whole museum. With 3 floors, 50 displays, and a live demonstration (15 minutes by itself), there is no way you could complete all of this within 10 minutes. Regarding your hot chocolate,... More
