musée-chocolat-strasbourg

The Chocolate Museum in Strasbourg belongs to the French brand Marquise de Sévigné and is actually located next to its manufacturing factory. It offers a chocolate discovery tour for adults and children.

The visit of the museum starts with an interactive tasting. Visitors receive four chocolates and are installed in an amphitheater. A video will then guide you through the tasting of these chocolates. It’s quite playful!

The tour then continues with an exhibition about the history of chocolate and about its making. The explanations are quite interesting, but the museum is not so modern. Besides a few aging automatons, the whole museum lacks a bit of life. The museography could do with a small face lift! You still get out of the museum having learnt a few things and that’s what matters.

At the end of the tour, there should have been a craft demonstration of the chocolate-maker work. There was nobody when I arrived and there were only three trays of chocolate chips for tasting. I would have liked to learn beforehand that I wouldn’t see the chocolate-maker and would have appreciated a discount accordingly. It seems to me it was gonna be the most interesting part of the tour…

Finally, even though there were some interesting elements, the Museum of Chocolate Secrets disappointed me, especially considering the price!

I liked

  • Interactive tasting
  • Interesting explanations about the history and making of chocolate, available in 3 languages (French, English and German)

I liked a little less

  • Quite an outdated museum
  • No demonstration from a chocolate-maker, even though it was advertised on the website of the museum
  • Too expensive
  • Chocolates were not amazing (but I have to admit that I am quite demanding)
