The ticket allows you to jump the queue which was likely a 15-20 minute wait. The mueseum itself is well organised and has lots to offer for all ages. I found the history aspect interesting but my 7 year old did not and therefore was not engaged in parts of the muesem that I would have liked to spend more time.

We learned a lot about chocolate during our visit to the Chocolate Museum and it was very attractively designed. Interactive partly to see and be amazed. A small tropical house is also attached, where you will of course find the cocoa tree in addition to other plants. For us it was a very entertaining visit. Unfortunately, it was very crowded and therefore the waiting time for an individual bar of chocolate at one hour was too long for us.

The museum was worth the visit for sure. However, it was incredibly congested and there was little guidance on shuffling people through the different exhibits of the museum. I suggest that the museum considers doing timed tickets so that everyone has an opportunity to truly enjoy the delights of the museum. We were so overwhelmed by the number of people, we left w/in the hour.
