Date of the museum opening was March 12, 2004. The museum presents the entire history of chocolate, that counts more than four thousand years. Figures of Indians, a fountain of hot chocolate, cocoa tree, stand with ingredients, products from chocolate, the layout of an industrial complex.
The exposition tells the story about the founders of Pokrovsky Stollwerck factory that has been existing in Pokrov since 1997. In 2001, the company was bought by the American company «Kraft Foods», one of the largest chocolate producers in Russia, which became the initiator of the creation of such an unusual museum in the Vladimir region.
In 2003, «Chocolate Museum» became the winner of new tourist museum programs and exhibitions that was held by the Committee of Physical Culture, Sport and Tourism of the Vladimir region administration.
The exposition is located in a building of the Pokrovsky local history museum, and until recently occupied only one room, but since 2010, the museum was re-opened after half-year renovation and now it is one of the most modern museums in Russia — its control system works on the technology of «smart house».
Pokrov also has the world's first and only monument of chocolate — the bronze statue of fairy that holds a chocolate bar in her hand.
