  • Decided to visit after wanting to see more of Belgian chocolates origins and creation. Staff at the desk were helpful and polite, was very cheap to enter (€6 for adult, €5 for senior or student). Down...  more »
  • Apart from the funny show, excessive price for the exhibition. The entry with the tasting also like.

  • It's a nice place to visit and learn many things about cacao trees and chocolade making. Also some good tasting pieces for testing:)

  • 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.
