This tour required use of a headset rather than a tour with someone you could ask questions. Some of the exhibits and the chocolate statues were quite amazing.

Nice museum with extensive history on how chocolate was discovered, how it spread around the world, and of course how cocoa and chocolate are made. The exhibits are great and the audio tour really well done. There's not a lot of interactive stuff going on though. I've been to a variety of chocolate museums in different countries, and this one looked the newest, shiniest, but had the fewest tasting stations. There's really only one place at the end, where they do a little presentation of how to make filled chocolates (it really just how to fill the moulds, they don't go through the chocolate and filling making process) where you can taste a few different varieties of chocolate buttons. It's nice, just a bit sterile without the level of interaction I'm used to from other chocolate museums.
Nice museum with very detailed (sometimes too much detailed) information. Also some free chocolate in the end and the demonstration (not that spectacular one in an overcrowded room). If you are planning to take the audio guide (which is recommended, a lot of languages are supported), bring the headphones and expect to spend there 2 - 2.5 hours. 1 hour is definitely not enough, don’t come on 4 pm. It took us around 15 minutes waiting in the queue on Saturday afternoon, despite we had the tickets already. One line is for all, not so well organized.
Ok for one time visit, e-audio will take you through origin of chocolate. Live demonstration counter also you get to eat chocolates to your satisfaction at the 'all you want to eat station' you can also enjoy Animation video of chocolate factory.
The museum is adopted for all ages. You get a device at the start which you use to scan tags along the way that tells the complete story of chocolate. The storytelling is adapted at start to kids or adults and you can choose different languages.
Only had a quick self your but didn't make it around the complete museum as limited time in Brugge. Loved the history and artifacts, shop looked reasonable priced as we had to rush through (which was a shame), just wish I had more time to enjoy the museum. I would return but would need more time in Brugge to do so.
