Is the Museum wheelchair accessible?
The Chocolate Museum Zagreb can be accessed by wheelchair. The Museum is located on the first floor, but it can be reached by elevator from the ground floor. There are no wheelchair barriers in the Museum. Unfortunately, the toilet is not adapted for people in wheelchairs.
Do you need to buy tickets for the Chocolate Museum Zagreb in advance or book an appointment and make reservations?
Tickets do not need to be purchased upfront. Come when it suits you. There are more visitors on weekends than on the rest of the week, but there is generally no waiting to enter. Only occasionally does a delay of a few minutes occur if a larger group of visitors arrive at once. Unfortunately we cannot receive arrival dates because we cannot control the length of stay of individual visitors and thus the pace of entry of others.
Can chocolates be bought at the Chocolate Museum Zagreb without entering the Museum's exhibition?
The chocolate boutique is at the entrance of the Chocolate Museum Zagreb. Access to the shop, as well as the purchase of chocolate, is possible without entering the Museum’s exhibition.
What can I expect from the Chocolate Museum Zagreb?
In the Museum you can learn about the history of chocolate, how it has changed over time, who consumed it and in what forms. You can learn how it is produced, you can test your senses and try to recognize the ingredients that go into chocolates. You can see ancient Aztec sculptures, porcelain chocolate makers from baroque European courts, tins of chocolate drinks from the time of the industrial revolution and chocolates from the first Croatian factories. You will also be able to taste chocolate – a total of nine types, each at its own time. You can expect content adapted for children and adults, available in Croatian and English.
Don’t expect a playroom or patisserie. The Museum offers interactive educational content, but it is not an amusement park. It also offers a tasting of selected premium chocolates to help discover the taste of a particular era and to round off the whole chocolate experience.
Do the chocolates in the sample box contain gluten?
The chocolates in our sample boxes are gluten-free. However, they are stored in the same warehouse as goods with gluten, so we cannot guarantee that contamination does not occur. You can request a detailed printout of the chocolate ingredients in our tasting chocolates at the entrance, so you can make sure of their composition.
