This is a must see, plenty of history, demonstrations of hand making of chocolates and wonderful chocolate samples throughout the tour. Highly recommend this if you are in the area and you will not be disappointed.Also love the stop to purchase some fresh chocolates and candy in the retail shop.

Very interesting place to visit. Once you enter there are trays of various chocolates to eat as much as you wish. Pull up a chair if you like. I suggest bringing a bottle of water to quench your thirst if you do some serious sampling though they do sell water in the museum. Amazing that one of the founders of... More

If you have any interest in chocolate, this is the place to visit. Nice displays about the making of chocolate and the history of the Ganong Brothers. Samples along the way so you can eat as much as you want. I think I had too many samples but I was on vacation so I guess it is ok.

Took the grandchildren to visit and they thoroughly enjoyed their time there. Very informative clips to watch, and plenty of tasting the chocolates. There are also hunts to find clues around the museum which kept them all occupied. Not very large but well worth a visit. The shop is good too. You can buy all your favourite Ganong chocolates. Yummy

No only is the museum interesting but the samples of chocolates delightful. Be sure to visit the shop to buy some chocolate to take with you.
