Gourmet Chocolate Museum
Following its founding in Bruges and in Prague, Choco-Story opened its third location in the heart of Paris in 2010. Spread across three floors, the family-friendly museum displays over 1,000 chocolate-themed objects and welcomes upwards of 100,000 visitors each year. In addition to learning more about the history of chocolate in the museum’s exhibition spaces, visitors can also see treats being made in the demonstration center, enjoy a wide variety of chocolates as they go, and register for a hands-on workshop.
To make logistics simple, museum entry can be booked online prior to your visit. Choco-Story Paris is also included in the Paris Pass scheme.
