  • Nice history. The museum was so nice and everything was well explained in details. I love the freebie. Thank you.  more »
  • Had a great visit. Allow a couple of hours :) Loved the tasting stations! Friendly staff. Lots to see and learn. Do make time for the demonstration at end.  more »
  • Cool that they have so much historic items from the Mayas and Aztecs. But I think they should have more interaction with the process of making it, like Ghirardelli, and its more about Cocoa than...  more »
  • I would love to come back just to sample some more pralines and chocolate. Love the stories being the chocolate. The different rooms. Loved the statue and bags made out of coco. The demonstration was very instructive too. The only down is the narrow stairs. It can be quickly crowded as it's the same stairs to go up and same stairs to go down after finishing the tour.
  • Loved this place. One of our highlights in brugge. With entrance ticket we also get 1 chocolate bar for free. And there are several chocolates samples(unlimited) inside! Would as well like to recommend cocoa butter hand/body cream from their shop smells great!!
  • If you like all things brown, sweet and chocolatey then this worth a visit. It's a small museum with a lot of stairs to climb but certainly packs a lot in. The initial rooms of the museum are really interesting but things quickly tale off from there...the only thing which kept us going were the "All You Can Eat" samples of chocolate dotted around! The demonstration at the very end of the tour was lacklustre to say the least but again, finished on a high with a free praline. Overall, enjoyable but not essential Bruges-viewing.
  • Things I remembered: Fascinating statues and figurines made of chocolate. Live demonstration of making Belgian chocolate by a pro (really marvellous to see their precise and efficient movements). Getting lots of random chocolate treats everywhere. Cons: expected slighlty more for the price I suppose. Still a great place tho. Other: taxidermy
  • The workshop we did was fantastic!! The chocolates we made tasted great . Much better than other chocolate workshops we have been to. The museum itself is basic and the free chocolate given is dark chocolate so the kids weren't too happy with that...
