This activity will end right where it started.
Select your tour option when you make your booking. Then, make your own way to the Choco-Story Gourmet Chocolate Museum (Musée Gourmand du Chocolat) in central Paris. 

Show your ticket and head inside to explore the three floors of exhibits, displays and children’s activities as you wish. Home to more than 1,000 original artifacts teamed with information panels in English, French and Spanish, the museum offers a captivating window into the evolution of chocolate through the ages.

Stroll around the galleries, and trace the 4,000-year-old story of chocolate, from the discovery of the humble cocoa bean as an ingredient by the ancient Olmec peoples of South America. Learn how the Olmecs probably consumed chocolate as a drink from around 1,900 BC, and discover how it became a prized beverage of nobles, and part of the ceremonial rituals of the Aztec and Mayan civilizations, before its use spread via trading routes to Europe and beyond.

Enjoy the displays that illustrate the chocolate-making process through the centuries, and watch interactive demonstrations to see how contemporary chocolate is made enticingly shiny and smooth.

Pause to taste different varieties of chocolate from around the world that have been made on site. Delight in the silkiness of Costa Rican chocolate, experience the melt-in-your-mouth fruitiness of Peruvian chocolate, savor the aromas of cocoa beans from Vanuatu and more. As you indulge, ease your calorie-counting conscience by learning about chocolate’s proven health-giving benefits!

Then, if you’ve upgraded, sit down to a deliciously rich cup of hot chocolate, the perfect finale to your visit. And before leaving, head for the museum shop to browse the array of books, souvenirs and chocolate treats, and perhaps buy some goodies — edible or non-edible — as reminders of your time here.

Your experience then finishes when you exit the museum.

    Delicious experience
    , Jun 2022
    It’s not a huge museum, which was a good thing. Enough diversity to keep you interested. I highly suggest the tour selection with the hot chocolate at the conclusion.
    Fun experience

    It was great to walk through the experience of how cocoa is made and how it is now I’m our tables - the shop left a lot to be desired

    We learned the history of chocolate making on a self-guided tour. We had unlimited samples of chocolates throughout the museum. The samples were great, but I expected to have more from different countries available.
    Fun time eating chocolate and discovering how it was made

    Small place with some interesting items to see. The place was empty, so it only took us about 30 minutes to view everything and then experience the 15 minute demonstration. The hot chocolate was amazing and there were plenty of tastes to be had...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
    Just okay, unless you really want to...
    , Apr 2015
    Just okay, unless you really want to learn about chocolate you can skip this. The demonstration was good and there were samples but it was a small museum - never got our 'end of tour' hot chocolate either. Save the money and go to La Mason de Chocolate and by the ganache!
