The Chocolate Museum is a varied and interactive place of learning and adventure. From the cultivation of cocoa and the production of chocolate to its 5,000-year cultural history, just about every topic is included.
A visit to the Chocolate Museum is a meaningful complement to school lessons and encourages independent learning. It is not only the intellect to which it appeals but all the human senses: experiences come via sight, hearing, touch and even smell and taste.
The Chocolate Museum offers unique learning opportunities through its spatial conditions alone. It is a lively, multisensory and emotional environment. Interdisciplinary, discovery-based and action-orientated learning is possible.
For children and young people a visit to the Chocolate Museum means learning without effort, with fun and without external pressure.
A glossary on the subject of cocoa and chocolate will assist you in dealing with the subject and preparing a visit to the museum.
