Museum of Russian Chocolate History

This is an off the beaten path museum in the heart of Moscow, and though its exhibits have been gathered all over the world and some of them are dated as far as the pre-Columbian times, when only the Aztec warriors were allowed to drink chocolate, this place would be particularly interesting for those who would like to take a closer look at the Russian chocolate tradition.

The museum is particularly proud of its rare collection of unopened chocolate bars, boxes and decorative packaging of popular Imperial and Soviet chocolate. Famous Russian and foreign artists took part in creating the majority of designs, which are now valued as pieces of art.

On a fascinating journey into the world of chocolate visitors will have a unique opportunity to try recipes from different epochs: starting from the Aztec “divine drink” to traditional praline.

A chocolate gift shop and a studio are located near the entrance to the museum. The gift shop offers a variety of handmade chocolate candies, bars and figures, produced locally and made entirely out of natural ingredients. And during master-classes in the studio each visitor, guided by a professional chocolatier, can make his own chocolate masterpiece!

The Museum’s doors are open six days a week, welcoming visitors of all ages. We also provide guided tours in English, French and Russian.
