Overview

Located in what used to be the original Ganong candy factory, The Chocolate Museum offers an interactive way to learn about candy making in St. Stephen - a tradition that has lasted over a century. Explore the history of the Ganong family, who still run the company, and the wonders of chocolate with our hands-on exhibits, interactive computer displays, historic chocolate boxes, and antique candy-making equipment. All of Ganong's hand-crafted products are made right here in the museum, allowing you to observe our famous hand dippers at work. Come to the Chocolate Museum to see why St. Stephen is known as "Canada's Chocolate Town".

This was one of the reasons to visit the area. Enjoyed the History of Chocolate and Chocolate Making. Was interesting to see the employees presenting the hand made Chocolates. As a bonus there were a couple of samples to try. Would certainly recommend visiting here

This was on my wife's must-see list. I thought it was a bit pricey. Very informative as to the history of the company. Some nice movies to see. Worth a stop.

We did not take the tour but bought many items. It was a beautiful and clean factory. Their chicken bones were delicious.

Expensive. I think the owners would be better to change the model and with a certain amount of chocolate purchase, receive a free museum visit. Chocolate is delicious. Coffee also available in shop.

We enjoyed walking around the museum and watching the various videos. There are samples of chocolate around different areas. It cost us $46 to get in ( 2 adults and 3 kids). We thought it was a pricey for a family of 5.

We had a wonderful time visiting the museum and learning about chocolate making and the history of the Ganong company. Watching the hand dippers was incredible!

It is too expensive for what is there to see and the little "gift" you get if you buy something at the store is ridiculous.
