Chocolate Museum - Review
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.

Chocolate Museum, Cologne Reviews
Great experience. Comprehensive walk-through of the entire industry and history of chocolate - from cacao seed to the delightful piece in your mouth. Closeup of the machines and also the handcraft. Make-your-own-bar is definitely the highlight! Also indulge in the chocolate shop and cafe.
This place was not nearly what it was advertised to be. Promotion material were lying. The fountain was practically non-existent - it was a bowl of chocolate, not even moving. You couldn't go near it, a lady would hand you a really small waffle dipped in chocolate and that's all the chocolate you'd get to try. Making your own chocolate bar was unavailable, you can now pay an expensive price for the staff to make it for you. The botanical garden (one of the main pieces of the museum) was closed due to wasp infestation. Worst 10 euro spent on a museum, complete disappointment.
This is a wonderful, fun and interesting chocolate museum! Inside there is a lot to learn and they set everything up, so that it is fun! For example there is a part where you go through a jungle of sorts! And let´s not forget to mention the chocolate fountain, where you can enjoy free heavenly chocolate! At the end there is a gift shop where you can purchase amazing chocolate! All in all I had an educational and fun time.
One of our favorite things we did while in Cologne. Everywhere you turned they were giving you more chocolate! The exhibits were interesting and taught us a lot about the process of making chocolate. The displays they had inside the museum section were very interesting and enjoyable to see. We also had lunch in the restaurant which was very good.
This is my first time here. After you buy ticket you will get a chocolate to say that you are now arrived. Then walk and feel wirld chocolate history until you see a chocolate machine and chocolate fountain. You have chance to try fresh chocolate again. At the enter have a shop that has many unseen chocolates to buy.
