We are the only cacao and chocolate museum of the Netherlands, established in Amsterdam. The Cacaomuseum offers a permanent exposition on the world of chocolate and cacao, and has a very extensive and diverse assortment of chocolates and cacao products, such as cheese, sausages, vinaigre and beer.
Furthermore, the Cacaomuseum promotes origin “bean to bar” chocolate by organizing expositions, tours, dinners, workshops, events, and offering education and information.
