Chocolates Museum prepares masterpieces of world art, fairy tale heroes, and famous legends sculptures from chocolate and presents them to the taste of chocolate and art lovers.
Strolling among chocolate waterfalls and breathing the smell of chocolate in Pelit Chocolate Museum, which is one of the museums to visit with children in Istanbul, is very enjoyable for both adults and children. Chocolate and cake-making workshops are also organized for children in this huge chocolate dream. The museum consists of 5 sections. In the entrance section, the most spoiled image of chocolate, the chocolate waterfall, the life-size chocolate house, the Noah's Ark and paintings telling the history of the chocolate welcome you.
We reminded that the hot chocolate waterfalls you see in the shopping malls are more gigantic here, adults may naturally ask, "We paid so much, isn't there a treat?" Here is the answer to the problem in your mind. You can taste the flowing chocolate waterfall. You can taste special flavors in the cafe and restaurant sections of the chocolate museum. Chocolate museum treats are limited to just tasting the waterfall.
You have entered the Chocolate Museum, a beautiful and friendly lady welcomes you, and you are served with chocolate glasses flowing from a chocolate spout. We're going to have lots of chocolate today. (Do not open the chocolate faucet yourself) You want to open the chocolate faucet by yourself and drink hot chocolate :) Let's start visiting the chocolate museum. Entrance Fees, student or full, do not matter, 50 TL as of 2021. There are discounts only for student groups, school trips can be made for 35 TL per person. After entering the chocolate museum, you go to the main museum section. There is also a chocolate waterfall here and this waterfall welcomes you in an inviting way. When you reach the chocolate waterfall, you can eat a finger of chocolate from this waterfall, but you cannot use your finger a second time.
Charlie's Chocolate Factory (İstanbul)
The museum manager says that they set out in 1957 to live every moment of life to the fullest and to add flavor to happiness. I think the movie of Çarli's chocolate factory made an impression on all of us, although the effect of chocolate in our lives varies with our perspective on life (or the way our families view life), it has an effect on all of us. What happens here is to be passionate about transforming chocolate into art, otherwise, would it be the perfect art? When passion is blended with chocolate, happiness and excitement emerge.
İmagine except for the floor on which you walk, everything here is made of chocolate. Hansel and Gretel's house has taken its place in the chocolate museum. By the way, it is forbidden to touch the products!
There is a cocoa tree and many other figures here, Noah's Ark is one of the first works of the museum, the ship he built to protect his family and all the animals in the world from the flood, which is described in the chapter of the Torah.
Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate were used in this work. Imagine you are entering a museum, everything is made of chocolate, isn't it like a dream? They look amazing.
There is an information plate on the side or in front of all the works. There are mosaic paintings, made of chocolate, a revitalized version of the old Istanbul street, (chestnut seller, yogurt seller, shoemaker, sherbet seller, bagel seller, paste and fruit seller, and they are all made of chocolate, and they look real.

When Is the Chocolate Museum Open? How to go?
This is Turkey's first and only chocolate museum, are there any examples in the world? I do not know, it started as a hobby at first to produce art from chocolate and later turned into a museum when the works increased.
The museum is open 7 days a week and opens at 10:00 in the morning. It closes at 17:00 in the evening. It gets very crowded on weekends.
You can use Cab Istanbul's private transfer service to get here. If you rent a car with a local driver, it will be much easier to do a trip to Istanbul or a different event after the museum visit. If you are going to come with your own vehicle, you can easily reach here after passing the Mahmutbey toll booths on the Tem highway, after the Esenyurt toll booths.
