Great demonstration, boring museum!

The museum is dull and very small. There's noting to touch/ smell/ experience and the pictures are all quite dull. The man who led the demonstration however was fantastic... read more

Lovely little museum - please be aware it's over 4/5 floors in an old townhouse with steps so not good for people with walking disabilities. If you are interested in the history of chocolate then the upstairs exhibits are full of this. The downstairs offers a chocolate fountain for dipping and lots of jars of chocolate buttons to try -...

Small but very interesting place and we enjoyed the exhibit and live demonstration. Honestly, I had no idea how chocolate was made or it's origins. I just took it for granted. I now have a greater appreciation for the whole process. Interestingly enough, the streets of this part of Brussels smell like chocolate. It was a true delight!

Very disappointing, limited information and a poor attraction for children. Clearly a tourist trap. Go elsewhere for your chocolate experience.

It costs just 6euro and you eat a lot of chocolate! :) First you visit the museum where you can get some pills on the history of chocolate and how they work and produce it. Then the best part: there is a demonstration on how one works and produce praline and you can eat one. There is a fountain with... More

The little museum itself is ok, kind of cute even, not worth the money tho even if it's only €6. However the demonstration was a huge disappointment and a waste of time. The presenter didn't speak a word of English and frankly didn't even try to. The whole thing was in Belgium French, which nobody in the group spoke and... More

The museum is dull and very small. There's noting to touch/ smell/ experience and the pictures are all quite dull. The man who led the demonstration however was fantastic, extremely funny and knowledgeable and translated for all languages. He gave ideas to do at home as well as informing us of how they make their chocolates and the sample was... More

Enjoyed the visit here, quaint little place. Chocolate making demonstration was very good, man seemed knowledgeable and was entertaining. Lots of chocolate samples throughout to have a taste. Would not recommend travelling to visit but if close by I would definitely stop off here!

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). Downstairs is the demonstration, occurring every 20 minutes or so. Whilst you wait there is a timeline for cocoa bean to chocolate, gingerbread to dip... More

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