We enjoy the Chocolate museum far more than we thought we would. Once inside the museum we learn more about chocolate than we ever wanted to know. I like the historical information best. I also enjoy watching people make the chocolate and am fascinated with how they create chocolate sculptures in so many sizes and shapes. It’s possible to follow the production process right here on site. You can also see where the cocoa beans, chocolate’s raw materials, come from by visiting the greenhouse.
There is a chocolate fountain, where you can sample some of the luscious brown stuff. There are rooms full of chocolate memorabilia like advertising and packaging. The museum is surprisingly crowded. I guess chocoholism is a universal disease.
We eat in the museum cafeteria and the food is quite good and reasonably priced. The view of the Rhine through the windows is great. I can’t believe we skip dessert.
The entrance charge is 5 or 6 euros, but there are discount coupons in every tourist publication.

Stollwerck Chocolate was a big brand in the U.S. until WWI, once the U.S. government seized the assets of Stollwerck, which included large factories in the Northeast.
Highly recommended for the whole family—and I don’t even like chocolate.

The museum also has a cafe where you can have a drink, watch the river go by, and eat chocolate.
The chocolate museum is a great place to go if you have kids or if you just love chocolate.

There are essentially three parts to the museum: A description of how chocolate is made (from cocoa beans to candy bars), a working factory, and a more adult section that studies the role of chocolate in society and displays some of the more ornate chocolate packaging. Side areas include a rain forest in a greenhouse and a fountain in the factory that offers up warm chocolate samples. The museum is situated literally on the Rhein, as you have to cross a drawbridge to get to it. The factory offers nice views of the river and both banks. Of course, a trip here is not complete without a visit to the gift shop, with all sorts of candy treats -- mostly chocolate, of course -- for sale at pretty decent prices. You can go to the gift shop without paying for the museum.
