Pelit Chocolate Museum Tours

Pelit Chocolate Museum
Learn more about Turkey's chocolate production at Istanbul’s Pelit Chocolate Museum, a must for chocolate lovers visiting the city. With a history dating back to 1957, the Pelit Chocolate Factory is home to Turkey’s first chocolate museum, filled with spectacular chocolate sculptures.

The Basics
Explore this small museum on a self-guided visit, a fun, easy activity for families with children. Plan around an hour to take in the exhibitions, which include an entire house built out of chocolate and an area where you can watch the chefs at work in the chocolate factory.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • There is an entrance fee to enter the museum, but children under 5 are free.
  • There is a cafe and gift shop, where you can purchase chocolates and cakes made on-site.
  • Pelit Chocolate Museum is wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
The chocolate museum is located in Esenyurt, around 18 miles (30 kilometers) west of downtown Istanbul (Sultanahmet) and about a 1-hour drive. Buses stop close by at Beylikdüzü, but it’s easiest to reach the museum by private transport or taxi.

When to Get There
The Pelit Chocolate Museum is open daily. The small museum is popular with local families and can get busy on weekends—opt for a weekday morning visit to avoid the crowds.
