The museum is located in a building, which was designed in 1939 by Stanislav Aloiz Borbal and which is included on the list of industrial heritage in Latvia. It tells about the history of chocolate manufacturing and lets you experience and enjoy it with all your senses – seeing, tasting, listening, and feeling.
A total of 100 kg of cocoa beans were used to arrange the exposition, while the eldest exhibit is more than 120 years old.
There are two more rooms – the Creative Chocolate Workshop and the Laboratory of Taste. The workshop is a hands-on experience to create chocolate, while the Laboratory invites to taste and celebrate life. The aura in the Laboratory of Taste has always been special, since it is the former laboratory to create new “Laima” products and new chocolate sweets recipes.
Museum is located only 15min walk from Riga city center and welcomes guests every day except Mondays. Museum is located in Miera street (Peace Street) - home to a bohemian community of shopkeepers, publicans, gallery-owners, painters and writers who congregate at its unusual collection of inspired shops and cafes.
