Full description

See more than 1,000 chocolate-related artifacts at the Chocolate Museum Paris (Le Musee Gourmand du Chocolat), and indulge your passion for all things related to the cacao bean. The self-guided tour includes live demonstrations and - more importantly - tastings. Children’s activities are provided to keep the little ones happy, including a treasure hunt. Explore the museum’s exhibits and demonstrations which take up 2,789 square feet (850 square meters) and recount the 4,000-year history of the cocoa bean in all its forms, starting with the Olmecs, Mayas, and Aztecs. Learn about the important role cocoa played in ancient cultures, including how cocoa was used in mystical rituals. Move on to the 1500s, when the Aztec emperor Montezuma introduced cocoa to Europe. Christopher Columbus was the first European to taste the tchocoatl drink, but he didn't like it and thus paid little attention to chocolate. Luckily, he wasn't the last European to give it a try. Witness the transformation of the chocolate trade as the chocolate-making process became more streamlined during the modern era. Watch virtual demonstrations to discover the secret behind the shiny outer coat that makes chocolate treats so appealing, and taste some of the chocolate products made on-site. Enjoy the milky smoothness of Costa Rican chocolate, the superb melt-in-your-mouth fruitiness of Peruvian chocolate, the sweet aromas of cocoa beans from Vanuatu, and more. Don’t feel too guilty about indulging; you’ll learn that chocolate has many health benefits. Then, browse the museum shop for books, souvenirs, and chocolate-related products.

We thoroughly enjoyed our journey through chocolate history. The all you can eat chocolate samples were a welcoming treat too. The chocolate demo was very interesting and we were able to taste the finished product. I bought several packages of chocolate to take home to California to make my own masterpieces.

It is worth seeing

but you don't die if you never saw :-) 3 floors above chocolate. Lettering is in French, English and Spanish. App with German language guide available. Written very dry, however. That's why we only listened at the beginning. At the end or every 20 minutes there is a 3 minute film and then a short demonstration about the production of chocolates. Price performance in the 90 min cinema. We were in a little over a 1 hour, so ok.
