Now, who does not like chocolate? We saw this on the map and was like, we have to go here since its not that far from where we were.
This chocolate museum in Jeju is the second largest in the world. The largest one is in Cologne in Germany.
We got free coffee and chocolate when we bought the admission tickets. Hmm… I think hot chocolate would have been more appropriate but hey, I got no complains. I don’t drink coffee, so my lucky relative gets to have mine too.
The building looks like a small castle. There is even an armored guard at the doorway. This building is totally different from every other buildings I’ve seen here so far. It is made using volcanic scoria that is unique to Jeju. There are some benches outside that you can sit on to have your coffee leisurely and enjoy the view of the building.
It is one of the top 10 best chocolate museums in the world.
You can find a gallery, a theater, a café, a workshop, a chocolate store and lots more here.
Here, you can learn more about chocolate. How they cultivate the cocoa, how they process it and everything else about chocolate. I found out about chocolate misunderstandings and truth. Good things to know right? I need more chocolate!
There is also an exhibit that features chocolate cases and items that Mr. Han Ye-Seok, the museum director, had collected around the world. I love the chocolate cases.
You can also sign up for a chocolate making class. My favorite is the workshop where I can see them making delicious chocolate.
You can buy the chocolates at the shop and it is a bit pricey but we do get to sample it (just a little) and it was delicious! I guess that’s the price to pay for good quality chocolate.
