Departure Point

Le musee gourmand du chocolat - Choco-Story, 28 boulevard de Bonne Nouvelle, 75010 Paris France

Departure Time

Museum open from 10am to 6pm. Last entrance at 5pm.
Please note that the museum is closed every year on January 1st and on December 25th.
Select your tour option when you make your booking. Then, make your own way to the Choco-Story Gourmet Chocolate Museum (Musée Gourmand du Chocolat) in central Paris. 

Show your ticket and head inside to explore the three floors of exhibits, displays and children’s activities as you wish. Home to more than 1,000 original artifacts teamed with information panels in English, French and Spanish, the museum offers a captivating window into the evolution of chocolate through the ages.

Stroll around the galleries, and trace the 4,000-year-old story of chocolate, from the discovery of the humble cocoa bean as an ingredient by the ancient Olmec peoples of South America. Learn how the Olmecs probably consumed chocolate as a drink from around 1,900 BC, and discover how it became a prized beverage of nobles, and part of the ceremonial rituals of the Aztec and Mayan civilizations, before its use spread via trading routes to Europe and beyond.

Enjoy the displays that illustrate the chocolate-making process through the centuries, and watch interactive demonstrations to see how contemporary chocolate is made enticingly shiny and smooth.

Pause to taste different varieties of chocolate from around the world that have been made on site. Delight in the silkiness of Costa Rican chocolate, experience the melt-in-your-mouth fruitiness of Peruvian chocolate, savor the aromas of cocoa beans from Vanuatu and more. As you indulge, ease your calorie-counting conscience by learning about chocolate’s proven health-giving benefits!

Then, if you’ve upgraded, sit down to a deliciously rich cup of hot chocolate, the perfect finale to your visit. And before leaving, head for the museum shop to browse the array of books, souvenirs and chocolate treats, and perhaps buy some goodies — edible or non-edible — as reminders of your time here.

Your experience then finishes when you exit the museum.

Small place with some interesting items to see. The place was empty, so it only took us about 30 minutes to view everything and then experience the 15 minute demonstration. The hot chocolate was amazing and there were plenty of tastes to be had...

This is a small museum, but the kids loved the scavenger hunt and the chocolate samples were amazing. Only do the hot chocolate tickets if it is cooler. We went in July and it was too darn hot to enjoy the hot chocolate.

We visited the Paris Museum of Chocolate on Friday 21st April. This very informative and interesting museum is conveniently located opposite the Bonne Nouvelle metro station on Line 8. My husband and I visited accompanied by our three grandchildren respectively aged 11, 10 and 7. They loved it and learned a lot of facts about chocolate - the tree, the beans, the countries producing the best chocolates, who first imported chocolate to Europe from South America, which various European queens and kings started the fashion of consuming great quantities of this delicious beverage, the various shapes of pots and cups in which it was served through the centuries, and how it started to be produced commercially and in large quantities during the 18th century, hence offered to the general public. Until then, it was a delicacy which could only be afforded and enjoyed by aristocracy or the privileged few. Printed vouchers are exchanged at the entrance and you are given tickets, which then allows you to have a cup of hot chocolate if you have purchased this option online at the end of the visit. There are various flavours to choose from. Children are provided with a booklet to complete and pencils, which must be surrendered at the end of the visit. The Museum has a good souvenir shop t-shirts, various sizes and shapes of chocolate to purchase, utensils and moulds to make chocolate at home, books etc... At the demonstration, visitors can watch a professional preparing praline chocolates which visitors can then taste freely. On arrival, visitors can also taste free of charge round drops of dark, white, milk and praline chocolate. If you visit with children as we did, who are hungry after the visit, there is a Pizza Hut restaurant right next to the Museum and a bistro at the corner. The Museum has three floors entrance level, then one upstairs and one in the basement and there is a lift for visitors who do not want to walk.

Although the Chocolate Museum was very interesting and enjoyable, again the information on getting to the Museum was very limited.
