Gourmet chocolate museum opens in Paris

Paris now has its very own chocolate museum. Choco-Story, “the gourmet chocolate museum,” officially opened on February 5.

The museum retraces the 4,000-year-old history of cocoa through displays and artefacts and explains chocolate-making techniques with demonstrations and tastings.

Ironically, Paris’s first chocolate museum is privately owned and operated by the Van Belle family of Belgian chocolatiers.

The first Choco-Story museum was opened in Bruges in 2004 and the second in Prague in 2008.

One thought on “Gourmet chocolate museum opens in Paris”

  1. Hello,
    I visited Paris 14 years ago and bought a lot of chocolate at a wonderful little store, Jardi et Gourmand. (I may have misspelled that.) What happened to it? A friend is going to Paris in two weeks and I would like to recommend that store or one similar.
