Schokoladenmuseum (Chocolate Museum - Cologne, Germany)
According to Ms. CocoaJava's source... "It's a pretty fun and informative museum. The history of chocolate section doesn't gloss over grower-processer trade inequalities or past injustices in the chocolate trade, there is a fully functioning mini chocolate factory with all the steps outlined, and there is a tiny greenhouse with recreated "tropical rainforest". My favorite parts were the the pop-culture of chocolate sections--they had some really hilarious old German television ads, and a collection of old packages and posters, etc. The building itself is also pretty nice, architecturally, and it's right on the Rhein. At the website, Information is given in German and in English, although the English gets sparse in certain parts."
