The tastiest museum in Ticino

Via Rompada 36, 6987 Caslano, Switzerland
Chocolate served at end of visit

In a country that is famed for its chocolate, you have to have a museum dedicated to this sweet delicacy. The Alprose Chocolate Factory and Museum is one of several that you could visit in Switzerland. Even better, would be to go on a chocolate factory and museum tour around Switzerland for one very delicious taste of history. All Chocolate Factories and Museums are not the same. The Alprose Chocolate Factory runs their museum with a strong focus on the history of chocolate so it is just as much a legitimate museum as any other. They even have a permanent collection of artefacts that is surprisingly large considering that it is about chocolate. The museum is well respected because of this abundance of documentation and how it combines the tradition of Swiss chocolate and the history of chocolate the world over. They also have an extremely wide range of chocolate available that visitors can buy; from the standard bar of chocolate to the specialty and highly premium stuff. It is almost a catch 22 visiting a museum that happens to make your favourite weakness, as you walk through the Alprose factory, you are enticed by the scent of chocolate delights from all corners that it is a wonder how you can continue listening about how it’s processed. Once the tour is done, visitors can enjoy the free chocolate tasting or buy some for the road.
