We only really went to this museum because the restaurant we wanted to have lunch at wasn’t open yet and they were offering free visits for the holiday (it’s normally 10 soles). It’s a neat little museum that provides a nice look at the history...More

Very interesting to discover the history of Coca in this quaint little museum. Most displays are in English and there is a little Shop with lots of Coca products. Worth the 10 sol entry.

Got a free perk from our tour operator to participate in the chocolate workshop. Expected the worst but was pleasantly surprised- it was a real blast! Our leader (Gill?) was an hilarious stand-up comedian. Go for it if you can afford the time.

We were surprised that there were so many people in such a small buidling. It was almost impossible to get through the doors. But I totally understand this....because CHOCOLATE!! This isn't as much of a museum as it was a tourist shop. We were able...More

It was great fun to make your own chocolate and hot chocolate by peeling, roasting and grinding. It’s good value for money as you also get to take away what you’ve made.

Interesting insight to the history and uses of Coco. Objectively lays out the benefits and the downside of abuse PS: not to be confused with the Choco Musuems (which are essentially chococlate cafes)
