Lame Museum, Great Demonstration

I had high hopes for a museum about chocolate and cocoa. The actual two small floors of "museum" were pretty boring and dinky - and a little rickety. Even the gift shop was a bit... read more

I had high hopes for a museum about chocolate and cocoa. The actual two small floors of "museum" were pretty boring and dinky - and a little rickety. Even the gift shop was a bit sad. However, the demonstration was great. It was informative, entertaining, trilingual and tasty! If you have a half hour to kill, the place is worth... More

As far as museums go this is more of a room. But you get some good history a great demonstration and the all important chocolate tasting!

Popped in here to have a look around the museum. Museum very basic and dated but interesting none the less. The best part was the demonstration by a master chocolatier. Was a very engaging demonstration and facts about how belgian chocolate is made. With a few tasty samples as well! Would recommend a trip here.

As a chocolate lover, I was really looking forward to this one. The little grandpa who made fresh pralines for us was lovely, but the whole museum is just a sketch on what chocolate can be. The taste taste is a tease - tricks you into buying more from them.

I'm not really sure what I expected when visiting, but I was a little disappointed with the Museum. It was informative, and for a small museum set up by a family it is really good. The chocolate making demonstration made it all worth it though!

this was on the top of our list to do and I enjoyed every moment of it. The demo was great and the staff were lovely and friendly. The chocolate tasting was brilliant. Brilliant for the price. My only complaint... Not long enough. Could have done with maybe a longer demo, trying something yourself. Something along those things. But a... More

We arrived in Brussels on the 5th January 2016 and was walking around looking for things to do. This museum was recommended by the information desk. We went on recommendation and it was ok. There was a language barrier between the receptionist and ourselves which made it a bit difficult. However it's relatively priced €6.00 per adult for a self... More

We had so much fun at this museum! Yes, the exhibits are definitely dated, but they were still informative, and we left knowing more about chocolate than when we arrived. But the best part? Chocolate everywhere! We had the opportunity to taste several different types of chocolate discs, from milk chocolate to very dark. There was also a fun praline... More

Loved this place. Totally awesome museum with lots of free chocolates. Many of the exhibits are somewhat bizarre (a naked boy made of chocolate wearing a Santa hat) but it was true kitsch heaven. The chocolate demonstration is also pretty good by a chocolatier who really should be working at Disneyland playing a prince. There's a chocolate fountain which seems... More

I guess value for money is not too bad, you get a bit of information and about 3 pralines for 5-6 euros....nevertheless the quality of the exhibit is very mediocre (outdated, typos everywhere, basically a lousy copy-paste from wikipedia)...the only thing that saves the visit is the chocolate making demonstration given by a nice, knowleadgeable chocolatier.
