Chocolate delight: five amazing chocolate museums

5 amazing chocolate museums

Dark chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, milk chocolate, unsweetened chocolate, white chocolate… so many varieties and so little time to try them all. But take heart – if you’re a chocolate connoisseur you can visit a chocolate museum and start nibbling your way to happiness.

Csokolade Muzeum, Budapest

Housed in a renovated palace, Budapest’s Chocolate Museum offers tours, tastings, and plenty of free samples. You’ll also get the chance to make your own chocolate bar.
