Cafeteria

At the cafeteria, you buy the tickets. The store and the museum are straight, and the workspace area is to the left.

The Museum

Since we had time till the workshop, we started with the museum.

As you enter the museum, you will see stands with information about cocoa and different chocolate brands.

There is also a small exhibition (on the left side of the corridor) and a window showing their factory (on the right).


We watched a short movie (about ten minutes long) about cocoa and then returned to the exhibition.

I saw a photography podcast once, and they were discussing the stories behind iconic images, including Einstein with the tongue outside. They showed the film’s original negatives, and it turns out that Albert showed his tongue only for a fraction of a second. The rest of the images in the series were regular.

You can cover the museum within 20-30 minutes. And since we had about ten minutes, we went to the store.

Chocolate Stores

The store is not big but has a nice variety of chocolates and chocolate-related products. We bought several items. They were not cheap but tasty.

Over the years, Shulman Chocolate opened two other stores I am aware of. They are:

  • Store at Agamon Market (near Agamon Hula). And it is open Sunday – Thursday: 10:00 – 21:00 (source).
  • The second store is at Gan Ha-tzafon near HaGoshrim. And it is open Sunday – Saturday: 10:00 – 22:00 (source).

Chocolate Workshop

Visiting the workshop was the main reason we went to Shulman. We started with a concise explanation about chocolate, and then each child selected a small drawing. Then using chocolate, kids drew on the lines. Afterward, they covered the whole picture using white chocolate and put the masterpieces into a fridge.

Note: the workshop that we took was in Hebrew.

Next, they created chocolate balls.

And in the end, we received the chocolate drawing. This is the kitten that my daughter made:

The workshop lasted about forty minutes, and my daughter immensely enjoyed it.

Summary

Everybody loves chocolate. And children love chocolate workshops. Thus a visit to Shulman Chocolate Museum is a good option for families with kids.
