A bit about the museum:
The museum is situated in a small building on Ferndale Road, off of Brixton Road. Formed in December 2012 by Melange Chocolate Shop operator Isabelle Alaya, it is a budding organisation, half-exhibit and half-shop, that adds another element to chocolate lovers’ obsession with the food: the history.
The museum displays exhibit proudly, while also offering chocolate bars and truffles from UK Artisan Chocolatiers, hot chocolate, free tastings, workshops, and special gifts for holidays such as Mother’s Day and Easter.
