the essential
The museum is an exhibition space, a cultural and entertainment space around chocolate.

There is no doubt as to the place in which we find ourselves as the smell of chocolate fills the room. On the shelves are various local products: bars as well as candies and sweets of all kinds, enough to make cocoa lovers salivate.

The museum presents three thematic rooms to better understand the work of chocolate sculptors, announces the director. The sculptures that you will discover are all around fifteen years old.

On this presentation, head to the first floor. First stop in the projection area where a film tells the story of chocolate. Once immersed in the atmosphere, visitors dive into the heart of the second room presented in the style of a cabinet of curiosities.

Numerous chocolate statues, of all sizes and shapes, adorn the room. Here, the goal is to highlight local heritage. Local residents will no doubt recognize the Griffoul fountain, the bust of Raymond Lafage or even the Albi cathedral.

The discovery of cocoa continues with the third room dedicated to a world tour. Tintin, the symbol par excellence of travel, finds his place next to two elephants. “Look closely at the shaping work,” says the director. “The elephant’s skin is much more cracked and tanned than that of her baby elephant. There is a lot of work around the shine and color of the chocolate. The sculptor chocolatiers play a lot with the temperature curve to achieve such a result.” If visitors wander attentively around the room, everyone nevertheless waits for the end of the visit to take part in the famous tasting.

The museum also offers tailor-made “chocolate discovery” workshops: possibility of multiple activities (wine and chocolate, animated demonstration, creation of take-away chocolates, etc.).

For children, it is possible to organize birthday parties including an introductory workshop with a master chocolatier, a visit to the museum and the provision of a reception room to blow out the candles and taste the cake!
