Not quite your typical museum. Probably more interesting to kids than some you have taken them too though! Located in Brixton, The Chocolate Museum currently has a tasting trail, where you can taste and learn about the history of chocolate. There are also workshops run where children can make lollies and truffles and learn how to temper chocolate, shape ganache and fudge or even make a wonka bar in honour of Roald Dahl!
Location: 187 Ferndale Road, Brixton, SW9 8BA
Opening Hours: Wednesday to Friday 2-7pm, Saturday to Sunday 11am to 5:30pm
