This tour was amazing!
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.
If you like chocolate, take the tour. Great history of chocolate and good tastings. The demonstration at the end is wonderful and you get to taste what the chocolatier makes.
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.
