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

This is a nice place to visit in Brussels where you get to watch how they make chocolate and then you get to taste a wide variety of chocolate made from cacao from all over the world as well as you can learn about the history of chocolate and cacao.

The museum itself is quite small and I did not find it that informative, you can look around in 10-15 minutes. After that we went to a small demonstration where a confectioner showed us how to make pralines which I found very interesting. After we tasted the finished product. There is also a chocolate fountain in front of the tasting... More

We went for a tour, and we expected to have informative one, and at least to see a lot of things inside, but nothing was inside in terms of objects, nothing mentioned about the history of cocoa for example, it is just a short simple demonstration how to make one type of chocolate!

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.

How you feel about this museum really depends on your expectations. After reading some trip advisor reviews, I was expecting a small and somewhat informative museum where I could watch a chocolate making demonstration and sample some chocolate. As such, we went for a short visit, watched the demonstration (fun!), and ate some chocolate. If this sounds good to you,... More

The museum itself didn't have a lot in it, the displays seemed poor and quite sparse. The only good side to us was the chocolate demonstration, this was good! Overall this museum wasn't that great!

Our visit began with the chocolate demonstration - it all depends upon timing whether this will be the start or end of your visit. Demonstration as to how filled chocolates are made - this was entertaining, with the multilingual chocolatier varying his languages as his demonstration flowed - and interesting to watch. Yes the museum upstairs is a little basic,... More

This is a museum just off of Grand Place, the staff here were again so friendly and happy to speak English so fluently. You're given a little guide as soon as you arrive and have the option of just going round the museum and watching a demonstration or the museum and a demonstration and an inclusion of a workshop where...

This is great little museum. It doesn't take a lot of time to go through and learn all about the chocolate making process. Interesting facts, awesome tastings, and a very entertaining chocolate demo. It's multi lingual, as an English speaker I had no trouble understanding them. Definitely worth the time and low admission fee.
