  • Fast and interesting theoretical tour for children and teenagers, but very friendly and dynamic demonstration with tasting of chocolates at will. We had the brussel card so entry included in the map, but otherwise the entry price was a little high for a half-hour visit.

  • Small Museum next to the grand place which we visited because as all the second day in Brussels do not know what to do. The Museum is really insignificant. Some pictures, some seed and fruit of chocolate, a couple of tools. Just nice the preparation of chocolates which is shown by an unlikely but likable guy that makes the taste of the chocolate that you want. Eventually the ticket price (absurd for what you see) is justified for all the chocolate you can eat there. :-))))

  • Beautiful exhibition, many types of chocolate to taste, very interesting demonstration of pralines. We had a guide through the Union of Brussels initiatives, making the visit even richer.

  • Rather small, but quite well organised. It's more like a quaint collection of chocolate related items than museum as such, but worth a visit. The really interesting part is the live demonstration from a master chocolatier, with tastings!
  • Nice little museum showing the origins of cocoa and chocolate. They have a demonstration of pralines are made, which was quite interesting, informative and fun to watch.
  • Nice museum with great show how pralines are made.
  • Great demo of how chocolate is made
  • the oldest museum of chocolate of Brussels. discover the history of chocolate, and see a live demonstration.
