Choco-Story in Paris is a unique museum dedicated to the story, the art and the taste of chocolate and this Easter there's a special workshop teaching you some tasty skills, all within easy reach of your welcoming hosts at Hotel de la Herse d'Or.
Choco-Story in Paris is a perfect Easter treat
Here's a unique museum, the Gourmet Chocolate Museum Paris, that has as its theme an edible Old Master: chocolate, which has delighted and fascinated mankind for more than 4,000 years. On three floors of a building on one of the grand boulevards of Paris, Choco-Story is a gourmet experience that focuses on every aspect of chocolate.
Founded just three years ago, this private museum has proved to be an instant success, using demonstrations, displays, films and, of course, tastings to tell the extraordinary story which begins with the humble seeds of the cacao tree.
This Easter, from Monday 14 April to Friday 25 April, Choco-Story Paris is inviting you to a seasonal chocolate workshop at the museum. You'll learn how to make your own chocolate Easter rabbit - and there is chocolate lollipop-making too. It's an ideal treat for all the family - and for anyone who loves chocolate.
Afterwards, you'll want to explore the rest of the museum too. Along with the permanent displays, there's a fascinating temporary exhibition which traces the history of Banania, a chocolate drink that has been popular in France for more than 100 years.
