A museum just for chocolate, so is this the definition of heaven? Here, the Choco Story Paris, a gourmet museum that traces over 4,000 years of cocoa and chocolate history in words, images and flavours. The goal? To be immersed in a sensory experience where the adventure will awaken your senses.

The museum is totally adapted to children and families, with a fun trail, quizzes and games to learn and have fun at the same time.

The museum has also brought itself up to date with interactive and digital experiences. But what we like most is the chocolate-making workshop, an excellent and good memory. And most importantly, you can taste chocolate throughout the visit: dark, milk, white… there is everything!
