  • Visit nice and very documented. You will learn what to know about chocolate, his appearance until making a tablet. €8 entrance with a bar of chocolate and a demonstration of creating chocolate where you can enjoy in the Museum, it is rather nice. It's also interesting for children.

  • Really nice museum. You can learn a lot about chocolate and the demonstration was amazing. The chocolatier has a great knowledge and he was very friendly. Also, you can try different types of chocolate. I highly recommend the visit.
  • Nice way to while away an hour! It does it's best to appeal to children but doesn't live up to expectations. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the demonstration was interesting. Not somewhere to rush to, but definitely worth it on a rainy autumn day!
  • obviously the chocolates were really good! u get plenty for free inside. tight spaces if you are carrying a baby stroller... can learn a lot about chocolates from this place. recommended.
  • At first we though it would be a rip off but at the end it pays off. You can really learn about the different types of chocolate and watch in real time how they make some of them in a kitchen. You get free samples at the end, really cool.
  • The site is split across a number of floors, however there is a lift available for those with mobility concerns. The museum also takes part in a ticket offer with a few other museums in the area, so although the entry is 8€ there are combi tickets that can reduce total cost and can be bought from the museum. The museum itself isn't interactive, and is based on text displays, however, the amount of information is great, and the displays are very interesting and well thought out. As with other museums in Bruges, there are child specific text lower down. At the end of the museum is a twenty minute live demonstration of how a praline is made and includes a tasting of different chocolate grades and a freshly made praline.
