Industrial heritage

Laima Chocolate Museum is located in a building listed as an industrial heritage site, designed by Staņislavs Aloizs Borbals (Stanley Borbals) in 1939. The interior features several elements that have been restored to their original form, however the Museum itself was opened in 2013. It is a place where you can learn the traditions of chocolate production, experiencing and enjoying the visit with all of your senses – by seeing, tasting, hearing and feeling. With a total area of 520 square metres, 100 kilograms of real cocoa beans are used in the exposition, while its oldest exhibit is over 120 years old. In addition to the main exposition, Laima Chocolate Museum has two more rooms – the Creative Chocolate Workshop and the Flavour Laboratory. The Workshop invites you to find joy in the chocolate-making process, while the Flavour Laboratory offers to taste and celebrate life. The Flavour Laboratory has always had a special aura, as it was once used to house the laboratory in which new Laima products were created and new sweets recipes were developed. Now the hall is also given a special mood by a piece of art corresponding to the concept of the museum – a painting made of chocolate.
