Information about Chocolate Museum
Malagos Chocolate Museum
The Malagos Chocolate Museum is the first interactive museum in the Philippines. It focuses on everything related to cacao and chocolates, and is considered the heaven of every chocolate lover. The chocolates produced by Malagos have been internationally recognized. It was the 2016 Great Taste Competition's two-star winner. It also received a sliver at the 2016 Academy of Chocolate Awards in London in April 2016 for Best Unflavored Drinking Chocolate.
Located within Davao City's Malagos Garden Resort, the museum offers "The Tree to Bar Experience" and is split into various interactive parts. First off, on the Puentespina Cacao Farm, you can witness the journey of hard-working cacao farmers. Then, through infographics and videos, the museum section will show you the wonders of cacao— its history, different types, and how it is made. There is also a children's zone where children can interact and play with Beanie, the museum's mascot.
It's a must to enjoy all kinds of Malagos Chocolate foods and drinks, including homemade ice cream, ensaymada, and hot chocolate in the in-house chocolate bar. Moreover, at the Malagos Chocolate Lab, you can also create your own unique chocolate bar. Channel your inner chocolatier as you experiment with different chocolate molds, toppings, and spices.
