This was one of the reasons to visit the area. Enjoyed the History of Chocolate and Chocolate Making. Was interesting to see the employees presenting the hand made Chocolates. As a bonus there were a couple of samples to try. Would certainly recommend visiting here

This was on my wife's must-see list. I thought it was a bit pricey. Very informative as to the history of the company. Some nice movies to see. Worth a stop.

We did not take the tour but bought many items. It was a beautiful and clean factory. Their chicken bones were delicious.

Expensive. I think the owners would be better to change the model and with a certain amount of chocolate purchase, receive a free museum visit. Chocolate is delicious. Coffee also available in shop.

We enjoyed walking around the museum and watching the various videos. There are samples of chocolate around different areas. It cost us $46 to get in ( 2 adults and 3 kids). We thought it was a pricey for a family of 5.
