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".

Went in; looked around -left. Took our photos outside with the "Chocolate Mooses" We surmise that it is probably popular with Provincial tourists.

The museum is very interesting and filled with interactive displays. Very informative and displayed in a way that is fun, but yet educational. As a bonus, there were chocolates to sample throughout the museum. Fun for all ages.
