Chocolate Museum

If the temptation of handcrafted chocolates isn't quite enough Silky Oak Chocolates have, what is believed to be the only comprehensive chocolate museum in the Asia Pacific region.

Covering 3,000 years of chocolate history, the Silky Oak chocolate museum tells the story of a food whose past is as rich as its flavour.  This fascinating story of chocolate is bought to life with colourfully illustrated texts, life sized tableaux, and a huge collection of chocolate paraphernalia, including a 2,500 year old Mayan Chocolate pot.

Our chocolate museum is located here in our Hawke's Bay chocolate complex.  And whilst you're waiting to visit why not enjoy a selection of our handmade chocolates, yum! 

Current Opening Times:

Museum - Open 9 to 3 weekdays 10 to 4 weekends. 

Please note: We do not open on Public Holidays.
