I really wanted to write a good review for this chocolate museum, as the actual chocolate from Modica is great. However it was pretty disappointing. I have to question whether it was worth the walk up the stairs, let along the 3 Euros for entry.

If you are a tourist and your main aim when visiting Modica is to visit this museum, do not waste your time or money. I would however say that Modica has alot else going on like the old town and some great restaurants. So if you just going to pop into the museum while seeing other attractions, then do so as there are a couple of interesting / historical facts about chocolate in general - but nothing you could not find on Google.

The pride of Modica, it’s chocolate, is well displayed with a historical overview of their chocolate prices and a spectacular map of Italy and many statues made from chocolate. The displays speak for themselves so no English translation needed.

First of all they opened 15 minutes later than announced. When we payed we got no information. When we started to walk around all posters was only in italian. It was small sheets in english. The best part was a short movie, who showed the history.
It seems the italiens don't care about giving any kind of background information, at least not in English. Do they understand they have a lot of visitors not understanding italian?

Small museum with chocolate carvings of Italy, other sculptures made out of chocolate. Worth seeing as it is so different. We bought our chocolate at Bonajuto shop nearby.

While it cost only 2 euros, there are only 3 small rooms. One is a display of the special chocolate bar wrappings for celebrities and Kings and Queens. There was an endless loop silent video running showing a man making chocolate. No explanation but you could figure it out. Next a room with a giant map of Italy - is it made out of chocolate? Probably but no explanation. There are busts everywhere - peoples heads - are they made out of chocolate? On the walls of this room are historical documents, some very old, showing the earliest chocolate makers lists of supplies etc. The English translations were very brief. We bought a few flavours of chocolate bars for 2.50 euros. Most disappointing to find a wine tasting and chocolate store ACROSS THE STREET selling the very same for 2.00 euros- and free samples of each flavour before you choose. Skip the museum, buy from across the street.

This thriving Baroque town Is famous for its chocolate as is for its architecture. We wandered along the Main Street where we sampled the traditional glass of choc. There is a cute video on display for an advert in which an American pilot, suspended from a tree by his parachute, tries to persuade a little girl to run for help with the offer of a Hershey bar. She shakes her head and silently shows him a bar of Bonajuto. Interesting to find out that the art of making choc was introduced by the Spanish who learned from the Aztecs of Central America in the 16th century. Its still produced traditionally without heat or coco butter so it has a grainy crunchy texture that led to its name as glass chocolate

This is one *tiny* museum - then again, it's only a couple of Euro to get in, so nothing much to complain about. It's about the history of Chocolate in Modica (where they make something more akin to the ancient aztec stuff). Not much beyond what you could get off the InterWebs, but then again, you're not going to get the chocolate sculptures, and the the 3-D map of sicily off the InterWebs either 😜
Love this place!....

Went in as we had some time to kill in the early afternoon when most of the churches were closed. It is totally underwhelming and not worth the entrance fee even though that is only a couple of euros. Just a couple of rooms, lots of old packaging and some models made out of chocolate.

Fortunately for us, the fella supposed to be taking the admission fee (2.5 Euro each) had just nipped off for a loo break.....we couldn`t see anyone to pay, had a look and were back out before his return.
Basically, a couple of rooms with some extremely tired looking globs of dark brown stuff....not much else of interest!!!!!

Small museum, not much information in English, done in 10 mins, might be ok for kids as fun to see the chocolate things but honestly not crucial for a visit
