    • Come and discover the culture of cocoa and the history of chocolate in Bayonne!

      Between legends and stories, in the footsteps of the myth of Quetzalcóatl, relive the conquest of the Mayan and Aztec civilizations as well as the arrival of chocolate in Europe and Bayonne! Then step back in time with our collection of ancient manufacturing machines.

      Throughout this trip, enjoy a gourmet look at the artisanal realization of our specialties made from 100% pure cocoa butter chocolate. Educational and fun, this course reveals all the stages of chocolate making.

      Finally, from the harvest to its final transformation, experience the intense journey of the cocoa bean through a short film (20 minutes of screening) and discover all the secrets of its production.

      A workshop for children then offers little budding chefs (ages 4 to 12) the opportunity to practice the profession of chocolate maker, giving free rein to their imagination to decorate a bite of delicate white chocolate. Fun creations they'll proudly take home.

      Contemplate, touch, listen, smell, bite... At the end of the journey, your taste buds are rewarded by tasting a selection of exceptional and essential chocolates.

      Presence of chocolate makers from Monday to Saturday noon (production stop at 5:00 p.m.)

    Everything was great, especially the quality of the chocolate. The museum goes over the whole process and is very detailed. The only thing you need to consider is even though you can book the visit on weekends... There are no workers there showing you how the chocolate is done. :( and they don't warn you
