Full description

See more than 1,000 chocolate-related artifacts at the Chocolate Museum Paris (Le Musee Gourmand du Chocolat), and indulge your passion for all things related to the cacao bean. The self-guided tour includes live demonstrations and - more importantly - tastings. Children’s activities are provided to keep the little ones happy, including a treasure hunt. Explore the museum’s exhibits and demonstrations which take up 2,789 square feet (850 square meters) and recount the 4,000-year history of the cocoa bean in all its forms, starting with the Olmecs, Mayas, and Aztecs. Learn about the important role cocoa played in ancient cultures, including how cocoa was used in mystical rituals. Move on to the 1500s, when the Aztec emperor Montezuma introduced cocoa to Europe. Christopher Columbus was the first European to taste the tchocoatl drink, but he didn't like it and thus paid little attention to chocolate. Luckily, he wasn't the last European to give it a try. Witness the transformation of the chocolate trade as the chocolate-making process became more streamlined during the modern era. Watch virtual demonstrations to discover the secret behind the shiny outer coat that makes chocolate treats so appealing, and taste some of the chocolate products made on-site. Enjoy the milky smoothness of Costa Rican chocolate, the superb melt-in-your-mouth fruitiness of Peruvian chocolate, the sweet aromas of cocoa beans from Vanuatu, and more. Don’t feel too guilty about indulging; you’ll learn that chocolate has many health benefits. Then, browse the museum shop for books, souvenirs, and chocolate-related products.

It was great. We were very lucky and were able to stay as long as we wanted without any other visitors and try and read everything in a relaxed manner. Drinking the hot chocolate at the end was great too. Very friendly staff. Nice tour. simply well done and a very good tip for me to experience Paris in a delicious and different way.

it was set up nicely and interestingly. for a 4 year old the quest is still really too ambitious. but there's plenty to see to keep you entertained without the scavenger hunt. if you have slightly older kids then the workshop is fun to do! I have seen some results and heard experiences there from participants and that was very positive. Also nice that you can taste the chocolate all the time! I also really liked the white chocolate milk at the end!

Great stay :-) you should plan about 1 hour. The chocolate to taste was very tasty but be careful the first one is a bit spicy. The treasure hunters with the chocolate as a reward was great and there was a dinosaur chocolate mold as a souvenir. The drinking chocolate was good but there are definitely better ones in the numerous bistros in Paris :-)
