This place was awesome! The staff was friendly and the samples were great. We initially planned on the Ixcacao Museum, but it was out of the way so we stopped in while out touring Antigua. There is a beautiful garden in the back to behold you enjoy a chocolate treat. Apart from just being yummy, it was informational as well.... More

We happened upon the workshop at the ChocoMuseo and thought it could be a fun thing to do. As it turns out, we really enjoyed learning the history of the cacao bean and had a blast making and tasting chocolate with our instructor, Patty. She was very personable and our group had an engaging and intimate time together. The cacao... More

Orlando's presentation was informative and educational. The kids and adults all have fun as well. It's a two hour tour of learning,making, and tasting. Orlando really takes good care of everyone! Would highly recommend to English and Spanish speakers alike. Take care Orlando from the Los Angeles Rancho Cucamonga family Anthony.

This is our second time to visit and better than we remembered. Our teacher was Patty and she was warm, interesting and fun! I went with my 13 yr old son and we had a private class as we were the only ones there. Classes run about $24 USD per person. You learn history of chocolate production and get to... More

Edwin was a master chocolatier and trainer for novice chocolate makers!!! We had so much fun today and Learned absolutely everything about the ins and outs of all things chocolate! The cost for chocolate making and tour was about $20. It seemed expensive to me at first but our tour/chocolate experience was almost two hours long and worth every penny!... More

We did the Bean to Bar. It was entertaining, delicious and educational. Our teacher was Edwin and he did a particularly good job keeping our attention!

We stumbled upon Choco Museo on the hunt for coffee and were rewarded with a much better cold frothy glass of chocol ha (chocolate milk to you and me). There's a free museum and shop/cafe to wander around and learn some of the history, origins and development of chocolate, but it's really worth taking the chocolate making class. Our teacher...

I took the truffle making workshop twice, it was so much fun! Loved it! The staff is great, you learn how to make truffles, and you leave with about 12-16 truffles that you've made! (Depends on how big or small you roll your ganache.) Plus you get to lick your chocolate-covered hands - YUM!
