Om den här aktiviteten
Paris’ Gourmet Chocolate Museum (Musée Gourmand du Chocolat) is the Van Belle family’s third Choco-Story museum, after Bruges and Prague. Located in central Paris, this chocolate museum gives a rich glimpse at the evolution of chocolate. All the descriptive panels are in English, French and Spanish, and there are children’s activities for your little ones, including a treasure hunt.
On your self-guided tour of the 2,789-square-foot (850-square-meter) museum, browse more than 1,000 original artifacts across numerous exhibits and demonstrations that 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.
Jump forward to 1502, when Christopher Columbus and his crew robbed a Mayan trader, and in the process, nabbed some cocoa beans. Unimpressed with the goods, he nonetheless brought the cocoa beans back to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella as a curiosity. By the end of the 16th century, the use of cocoa spread across Europe. 
You'll also see how the chocolate-making process has streamlined over the centuries. Watch 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. And don’t feel too guilty about indulging today — as you’ll learn, chocolate has many health benefits!
At the end of your visit, enjoy a cup of hot chocolate (if option selected) and browse the museum shop to purchase any books, souvenirs or chocolate products you like.

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.

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.
