Chocolate is a hit across all ages. The child in us springs forth whenever the opportunity to eat chocolate presents itself. A chocolate speaks a thousand words, but, do you know the origins of chocolate? Or even how it’s produced for that matter? To quell both your curiosity and your taste buds, head over to the Chocolate Museum or the Schokoladen Museum. Undoubtedly one of the most popular tourist attractions, this river side museum is often crowded to capacity.
The Schokoladen Museum is the one place which actually celebrates chocolate going as far back as 3000 years, from the days of the Mayans to the industrialization in Europe. Complete with conveyor belts, tasting rooms and the perpetually exciting chocolate fountain, are all available for your perusal.

This is such a fun Museum, its not to big, the exhibition is informative and engaging. They will spoil you with lots of samples. The best part is the real-live factory where you can see how the tiny bars are made and wrapped. Fun for kids and anybody who loves Chocolate
I visited the museum on their 25th birthday weekend. I expected a little more but still it was a pleasant experience. They have explained the history well and there's a lot of information about different types of chocolate and their origins. I really liked the part where the chocolate making machines could be seen in action. There are different activities going in different parts of the museum but they are more suitable for children. The view from the museum is just amazing.
Great for chocolate lovers. Takes a while to get around and very informative. Would be a bit better if you got more freebies, I felt what we did get was quite stingy having paid 11 euros to get in (a shot of melted chocolate from the fountain rather than a wafer would be a dream!).
Paradise for the chocolate lovers. It is a chocolate museum one should never miss. A huge variety of chocolates to see, taste and buy. Located on the banks of River Rhine. You get a beautiful view of Rhine from the museum. Both children and adult would love to visit this place to get overwhelmed by chocolates❤
Me and my boyfriend very much enjoyed visiting this museum and seeing the chocolate being made. The price is a little steep, even for students, but you do get some complimentary chocolate and a cool learning experience. It is a shame that there isn't more things involving white chocolate though as it is my favourite kind of Lindt chocolate.
