Discover why St. Stephen is Canada’s Chocolate Town!
The Chocolate Museum, opened in June of 1999. The Museum tells the history of our wonderful local chocolate company, Ganong Bros., Limited, candy makers in St. Stephen since 1873. Come see the history of the coco bean and how it came to be the lovable treat it is today. The Museum is an indoor, unique, interactive experience.
There is no better way to sweeten a child’s enthusiasm for history, entrepreneurship, candy-making, and business than with chocolate! Adults delight in childhood memories and traditions that were influenced by confectionery. With our chocolate treats, chocolate decor, and our chocolate themed gift shop, you will be sure to have a “sweet” day!
The Chocolate Museum’s mission it to provide experiences and presentations that delight, educate and entertain, while fostering partnerships, building community commitment, and sharing our history & heritage. The Chocolate Museum implements economic, historical, cultural, and educational benefits for the people of St. Stephen and surrounding communities.
