Look at this beautiful cocoa-pod! 🧡

Sunday the 3rd of October we’ll be celebrating World Cocoa and Farmers day at the museum!

This is Herminia, one of the farmers of Citizens of Chocolate.

Citizens of Chocolate is a collective of mostly Panamanian indigenous women cultivating/harvesting/processing cocoa into chocolate.

The main goal of Citizens of Chocolate is to participate in environmentally sustainable farming that protects the tropical rain forest flora and fauna, while producing income benefiting whole village economy!

The Chocolate Museum sponsors a Chocolate Tree through Citizens of Chocolate so that these chocolate farmers can continue their work and way of living even in challenging economical times!

You can sponsor a chocolate tree too! Go to 👇

Thank you so much for the great experience and flexibilty to accomodate our booking after some confusion on the confirmation. Family had a great time! Highly recommend, service was exceptional...and chocolate was pretty amazing as well.
We had a lovely time at the Chocolate Museum today. The chocolates were so much fun to make and our host was incredibly friendly!
We had a lovely time thank you very much- 4 very sugar high kiddies lol
One more thing (from a teacher) - If you visit (and you should!) - make sure these guys get PAID! A small business like this cannot manage with cashflow problems - staff just don't get paid. When you get home, after a long school trip (we all know how that feels!) - make sure you go to your school office and ASK if the invoice has been paid yet. The staff at the Chocolate Museum have worked hard to entertain and educate your children. They're NOT on a salary. Support these guys ! Don't let school financial 'admin' stop these wonderful people from actually being paid. Help 'em out! And a big Portuguese kiss to my favourite Chocolateer!
Dear Chocolate Museum... BRILLIANT! I'm a primary school teacher who took 60 ten-year-olds from Brighton up to Brixton for workshops. We had a WONDERFUL time! You must go. The children (AND adults!) really enjoyed it. The people there are brilliant, well informed, professional and, more importantly, FUN! We have some very 'difficult' children with a variety of special needs - and the chocolate museum provided ALL our children with an interesting, stimulating and wonderfully 'chocolatey' experience. Most highly recommended! Mr. Mole - Year 5 teacher. :-)
How much is it get in? Thanks
Thank you,Hannah(I hope that I write your name correct),so much for all you teach us today.Love you💋
