  • The museum itself is a little dull and underwhelming. The chocolate making demonstration was pretty good though, and a chance to sample different types of chocolate was also a plus point.

  • 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.
