The museum is small and somewhat disappointing. It has only three rooms, only one of which explains chocolate making. The others have carvings of chocolate such as a map of Italy.

I visited this chocolate museum in modica when i went to Sicily. It's a tranquil museum in this rather fascinating and breath taking city with it's amazing baroque buildings. The museum takes you through the history of the city's chocolate making.

A small museum that was really fun to see -- first some posters on the history chocolate production in Modica, then on the production of chocolate more generally. The treat is the two or three rooms containing sculptures made of chocolate (busts, objects) and paintings...More

At €2.50 each entrance fee I expected a bit more than what was on offer. There were big posters with the history of chocolate but mostly it was in Italian, a bit of English here and there but no other languages were catered for. One...More

We arrived 10min before closing, the guy at the check out told us we could still go ahead. He was right 10 min is actually too much to see that tiny display of brown sculptures. The good bit is the price, quite cheap.

This museum should only be visited when you have nothing else to do. We ended up there and paid our 2.50, and went to the museum in about 15 minutes. There's a few explanation plaques in English that help you understand everything, however it's just...More

Given that the city is known for the chocolate, you would expect a nice museum to present this history. This museum consists of only 2 rooms, but I would recommend going to see it because of the Italian map made in chocolate. There are also...More
