A museum, a tradition


Its main house of the reception is in honor to the Old Hacienda Uxmal, history of the important sugar estate of the family Peón.

It is not a conventional museum, our focus goes to the interactive side, where you are

The protagonist of the tour.


The concept of the museum is to rescue the history of cacao; From Mexico to the world in

Botanical gardens with cocoa trees along the way.


It has 6 permanent rooms, each of which represents an important aspect in the history of cocoa, a timeline from fruit to chocolate today.
