Le musee gourmand du chocolat - Choco-Story - Paris

Interesting little museum with lots of history on Chocolate”

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

OK, yes this museum is not big but it holds a lot of information on the history of chocolate. My son enjoyed looking for the Playmobile areas to complete his quest that he received when we purchased our tickets. It is a bite expensive for what you are getting, I would have felt better if it was between 4-6 Euro. We had just gone to the science museum for kids and that had many more activities for approximately the same price as the museum 9 Euro.
The demonstration was very nice and done in both English and French. It was nice to get chocolate samples at the beginning of the demo as well as when we first came in. We then were able to taste a sample of the chocolate made during the presentation. All of the posted information was both in French and English which was nice as we weren't sure what to expect when we saw such a small museum.
The hot chocolate was a bit over-priced and a little disappointing. They heated the milk and added a chocolate stir, I expected a little more. We have visited Paris often and it was nice to get away from the regular sites and visit this quaint museum. We all learned a lot about one of our favorite things and the souvenirs were definitely well priced and a good selection.
