  • Pleasantly surprised by this museum that takes up the history of chocolate from the beginning. We enjoyed the tastings as the tour progressed. My 9-year-old daughter wasn't bored. I recommend.

  • We stopped by the chocolate museum as my wife is a bit of a chocoholic so it seemed the place to come. The museum gives you a good background and history of chocolate. Having visited the Cologne Choco...  more »
  • Nice and interesting information and of course also good tasting, also fun for kids! Best to find a lot of information, then make a ' workshop ' pralines and taste it.

  • This was a very interesting museum - especially to learn the connection of Belgium to chocolate, the history of chocolate in general, and how it is made / what the ingredients are. We just did the basic tour and spent about an hour reading through their various displays and looking at the exhibits. There were also a lot of artifacts / displays which made it worth going vs. reading online / elsewhere. Worth it if you have the time.
  • Fun learning experience with chocolate samples along the way. It was more history than I was expecting and I mean that in a very good way. Great way to spend the afternoon
  • Great museum about the origins of chocolate or rather kakaw (cocoa) from how it grows to how it ends up in a cup or as a praline in a chocolate box. Taster options along the way and wonderful demonstration at the end of the tour on how to make a praline! Recommended visit!
  • Be prepare for a lot reading! Very informative about the origins of chocolate and its way through to the present days. To encourage you to get to the end of the museum there are samples of different chocolates alone the way. The most entertaining part was a live chocolate making show.
  • I love this place and the chocolate. You can see the history of the chocolate and taste the chocolate inside. I was also able to see how is made the chocolate and at the end of the tour I could buy from their shop souvenirs and chocolate for the loved ones.
