Very interesting self guided tour. Lots of information available to read. Be ware that this is not easily accessible for those with poor mobility. We nearly missed out on the chocolate demonstration as it was not obvious that this was available on the ground floor. Worth the 25 minute wait between the demonstrations.

A really interesting place to visit, lots of stairs though so be warned. Yummy chocolate and wonderful chocolatier showing how to make praline stars.

The best bit of the museum is the free chocolate bar you receive once you pay for a ticket. On entrance to the museum are the public toilets which smelt really bad and we're in a bit of a sorry state and first impressions... The rest if the museum felt a bit stretched for ideas to fill the museum

This tells you the history of chocolate in Europe and how it was used / adopted. Addictive even with out the sugar, and the cause for much rebellion. No change there then.

Good insite to the history of chocolate plenty to read and watch a video. Not an ideal place for the less mobile as lots of stairs to climb. Good demonstration at the end and you get to taste a sample of the chocolate.

This was a self guided tour with plenty to look at and read about the history of chocolate. A excellent demonstration on the making of praline chocolates with samples at the end.

I had great expectations for this musuem and was disappointed by the experience. Not sure what I expected. It was raining so we dived in out of the rain and feel it was missing something, not sure what. The chocolate making demo was good and of course the free samples !

It's not that easy to know where it is. They don't have lots of signs or adds. But that might be why it is so nice and quiet as well. £8 only pp and lot of things to see and learn. They give you some chocolate too!! :) And you can see a demonstration with tasting at the end!! This... More

Not at all what I was expecting, it was about the history of chocolate not just the making of it. There was a demonstration on how actual chocolates are made and of course a shop.

Good value for money micro-museum to spend an informative hour learning about the history, production and development of chocolate. Plenty of free samples at the beginning and end of the tour and a demonstration of the chocolate making process.
