  • A slight hiccup was the chocolate museum. Here is way too much detail on the history of chocolate. Apart from the tasty chocolate upon entry, and the nice demonstration was not really interesting for us.

  • It's really quite boring and very much incorrect dated information. The only thing me nice layman and where I still have a bit of hope at had was at the demonstration but you could see nothing like for the crowds.

  • It was a nicely presented museum but as a tourist attraction I found it rather dull. The demonstration was over in just a few minutes leaving me rather under whelmed. 
  • Difficult to review this. It's a museum about chocolate. So first the museum part, it is very informative, if a little dull. As previous reviewers have stated, it could use a little more interactivity. Second, the demonstration. This was really good. The guy doing this really knew his stuff and answered lots of question. Finally, the obligatory shop. Had a good selection of chocolate and related gifts.
  • When "In Bruges", eat chocolate! Learnt a lot about the history of chocolate making, marketing and manufacture. I actually do not even eat chocolate much but was dragged out of my comfort zone into this museum - and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Well worth a couple of hours to take it all in.
  • This museum was surprising in producing some interesting facts about the history of chocolate and at a stretch how it may have in fact had a play in our further understanding of the Mayan language. A good and fun museum for children.
  • Interesting private museum for lovers of chocolate. They could use some help with their english translations, but the place is unique and fun.
  • Fun experience learn lots about the history behind chocolate but the displays were not that exciting. Over all worth the addition but lots of reading etc. as you make your way thru. Lots of stairs as well.
