The basics

Visitors can enter and browse the exhibits of the ChocoMuseo for free. Exhibits are designed to be self-guided, though there are staff on hand to show you around and further explain the displays. For a more hands-on experience, opt for a chocolate workshop, during which you can make your own chocolate bar, as well as preparing and sampling Maya-style cacao drinks. If you’re on a tight time schedule or are traveling with children, you may want to opt for a shorter chocolate workshop instead.

The ChocoMuseo also hosts regular cooking classes that showcase Guatemalan cuisine. Learn how to make typical Guatemalan dishes such as pepián (traditional Guatemalan chicken stew). Some food-oriented tours of Antigua combine market visits and food tastings with a trip to the museum.

Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Workshop in ChocoMuseo Antigua
If you like chocolate, you will like this experience. Very family friendly. You will learn about how chocolate is grown, processed, and finished and you will be doing a number of steps in process yourself! Get ready to taste excellent chocolate, experience chocolate tea and make your own chocolate bars! Very fun and something for the whole family.

Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Workshop in ChocoMuseo Antigua
This was a fun experience. I learned a lot about chocolate-my favorite treat -and met some new friends to have dinner with afterwards. It was a nice way to spend a part of my afternoon. And I got to take home chocolate that I made! I would recommend.

Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Workshop in ChocoMuseo Antigua
This was a full 2 hour workshop where I learned a LOT about cacao and chocolate. The class is as not just about making a chocolate bar, but while it cooled they gave us a lot of information about the chocolate making process. We got to sample different drinks made from cacao which was very cool. Recommended for all ages!

Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Workshop in ChocoMuseo Antigua
It is was fun and informative AND the chocolate (and the ice cream in the shop) was really lovely. We tasted and rated the beans from fresh out of the pod to ground up roasted paste that we prepared ourselves. Seriously serious and cool.

Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Workshop in ChocoMuseo Antigua
This two hour chocolate experience was incredible. We learned about the history of cacao, the Mayan civilization, colonization, and how to EXACTLY make chocolate. From start to finish this experience was an 11 out of 10!

Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Workshop in ChocoMuseo Antigua
Great experience. I've done several chocolate experiences and museums and this is the first one where you actually get to make and take your chocolate from bean to bar literally (some advertise that, but it doesn't actually happen). They added some stools and we were all able to sit and watch. Testing out the bitter beans and multiple stages, and trying some unique drinks added to the experience. It's a bit long for younger kids, but my older kids enjoyed it!
