We hesitated to visit this museum since it had 2.5 stars, but decided to go since recent reviews were good and we were already at the grand place. It is right off the square. And like other recent reviews, we really enjoyed this fantastic museum. It is short but sweet! It has great samples, an awesome demonstration of how to... More

Although it is true that this is a very small museum it is still well worth the visit. Spread over 3 floors the story of chocolate is told. Some of the sculptures made from chocolate are amazing. Be sure not to miss the display of 2 dresses and a hat made entirely of chocolate. At frequent intervals a demonstration is... More

The museum is too small, just three rooms on three floors. Actually, only the second one has some interesting staff about gathering of cocao beans. The bright sides are: free chocolade and very charismatic (chocolade) cooker. On the other hand, the price is not high: just 5 euro.

This was great. The museum is situated just off the Grand Place and is very easy to find. It's not very expensive to get in, and there are discounts for elderly/students etc. Upon entering, we were faced with man sixed statues made out of chocolate - very impressive. We waited around for a talk about different types of chocolate, but... More

There are quite a lot of negative comments about this 'museum' but we found it very interesting and enjoyed the demonstration of chocolate making (and the tasting!) We also thought at 5.5 euros entrance it was good value. Some people have commented about the chocolate demonstration being conducted in French but I am a non-French speaker (apart from very basic...

This place is close just next to the palace and easily you will miss it unless you ask form some one or the tourist information center will guide you. It is located at the side lane next to the palace. There is a entry fee and you can taste different types of chocolates over there. The chocolate processing will be... More

The museum is rather small but packed in a lot of information about the production of chocolate and the countries in which cocoa is produced along with some history of how it would have been drunk by the ancient people of South America. The museum itself was situated over three floors which were accessed by narrow wooden staircases. Upstairs the... More

This was a great way to start our time in Brussels. It is very fairly priced considering all the chocolate samples you get. After you pay someone gives you a shortbread cookie that was just dipped in melted chocolate, it was amazing. Then you get to watch a demonstration on how chocolate is made! The rest of the museum is... More

This small museum is a great activity for your day in Brussels. During this time you will learn a great deal about the history of chocolate production and for chocolate lovers have a couple of free samples. The educational chocolate demonstration was both interesting and well delivered. At only €5 a great activity
