Historical displays about making and advertising chocolate were interesting and well done. However, this is a small museum and the chocolate to purchase was expensive. We got some as gifts, however, and appreciated the fine local wrapping paper. I wouldn't travel to Astorga just for...More

We found out of the chocolate museum via the hotel. It was a easy ten minute walk and we enjoyed the visit. Interesting to see how chocolate actually should be made.
