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.
We changed the date that been booked and it was no problem, thanks to lovely Laura! Very helpful staff. Great moment, everyone enjoyed it specially my chocolate lover kids! They also enjoyed the games which kept them busy and prize were extra bonus for them.. hot chocolate at the end of the tour was another treats!
easy to get in and the hot chocolate at the end of the tour is delicious! learned alot I did not know and was happy with how the tour went. the 10 minute demonstration was pretty fascinating as well.,
A small friendly museum- the chocolate is delicious! It's not the most interesting exhibition- I have visited similar and seen it done better but that said overall it was a good experience.

Interesting if you like chocolate and a real eye opener into the process from start to finish. I recommend a hot chocolate the end
The tour was lovely and perfect for my ten year old - any younger may struggle to understand it all. Great little treasure hunt to looking at the Pkay mobile displays kept her going.
If you love chocolate, this is the Museum for you. It is geared toward kids, but is a great museum with a lot of interesting facts and exhibits about chocolate. You can sample chocolate throughout the museum so who wouldn't enjoy it.
If you like history and you like chocolate - this is the place for you. We walked from our hotel - about 30 mins and so worth it because we saw another side a Paris. The tour is self guiding so you can take as long or short as you would like. There is a chocolate demonstration and at the end if you purchase - a cup of hot chocolate. You choose the flavor and then a chocolate pop to put in it!! I DIED AND WENT TO HEAVEN.
The museum is very nice. Everything is in English as well as French. As for the actual chocolate tasting, I found it was lacking slightly as the tour states up to 10 tastings and we only had 3. The chef doing the chocolate demonstration also had a very hard accent to understand when speaking in English.
It was interesting to learn the history of chocolate and the demonstration was pretty good :)
Although the Chocolate Museum was very interesting and enjoyable, again the information on getting to the Museum was very limited.

it was good but not as i expected, very small place also we booked to have a cup of hot chocolate at the end of the visit but we didnt have it because there was no one that told us about it. its good to do it only if you have enough time not necessary at all.
