Description

This temple to chocolate is located on the Grands Boulevards, near the Grévin Museum. Choco-Story teaches visitors how this black gold is made, starting with the raw cocoa beans through to the techniques used to create the finest chocolates. Over 1,000 cocoa-related objects fill this 850 m² chocolate paradise, including several reproductions of Mayan tools. As you explore, all your senses are awakened, and you can even sample the chocolates as you learn about the compelling history of chocolate that began in Ecuador in 3500 BCE.

Have fun while learning

Visits here have a playful tone, even for very young children. As you wander along the aisles lined with old machines, you can learn how to prepare traditional Mexican hot chocolate. Show off your skills by taste testing and trying to guess the flavours of as many chocolate pralines as you like. During the tour you’ll even encounter an imposing, and appetising, 3-meter-high sculpture of the Eiffel Tower in chocolate. And just like in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, “everything in this room is eatable” (except the sculptures!)

Next, head to the workshop for some chocolate demonstrations: here the chocolate makers will reveal the secrets of chocolate’s glossy appearance. Then take a cooking class with the whole family (from 6 years old) to learn how to make mendiants, chocolate discs topped with dried fruit and nuts, and chocolate lollipops. Apply yourself, as everything you make, you get to take home!
