If you come to the museum to appreciate the amazing skills of building artistic patisserie in Chocolate, this is good, but if you are coming to buy chocolates, it is hugely overpriced for the quality you buy, good chocolate double price what you should pay

Our son loved the museum, but it seems like things are getting a bit old. The artistry used to create the sugar pieces is incredible.

For €4 each the museum is quite interesting but it would be even better to see the techniques which went into creating these exhibits, some of which are exotic but very banal. I could not help but imagine a break-in where the burglar is found...More

The sculptures make you think they aren't made entirely of sugar and chocolate, but they are. The woman made entirely from chocolate defies belief.
