The Museum of Chocolate and Marzipan is situated in the historical centre of the municipality of Tábor, established in 1420, being the seat to the radical wing of the Hussites troops.

(for more about the town – click to the town’s website)

The Museum was founded in 2012 and opened on 5th September 2012. Thanks to the support from the EU sources, the Museum is conceived majestically, being situated on the total surface area exceeding 1000 m2. It presents the history of growing cocoa beans, processing them and making chocolate and marzipan. The Museum also offers its visitors to see the interactive exposition where you can see historical packages from all over the world, chocolate dishes and/or small boxes for sweets.

The basic lure is models of marzipan fairy tales, Barbie dolls in historical dresses from marzipan, chocolate hats, marzipan dominants of the municipality of Tábor like, for example, Žižka Square, Kotnov or Střelnice.

The visitors may create also something from marzipan or chocolate, their own original souvenir. At the same time, there is Chocolateria available in the Museum where you can taste hot chocolate and watch confectioners in their work at the same time.

In the winter season, the Museum offers lots of accompanying programmes like degustation, courses or workshops. The Museum is also suitable for company’s events, teambuilding activities, birthday or other parties, etc.
