The guy is SOOO passionate and explains things with such detail, it's great! And you get to taste the chocolate after! There's also a chocolate fountain where you dip biscuits... More

This was a very good value visit to a lovely old house with great displays and information boards etc., but what really surprised me was how much chocolate we actually ate! It is highly recommended, especially if you have children.

Small poor museum, with a little praline making demonstration. The viewing area is very small, fortunate it was only one group there, otherwise you wouldn't be able to see anything. They guy presenting was nice but he should work on his languages. What is it with everyone in Brussels only speaking French and not Dutch/English! The upstairs with displays and... More

This is a small museum with only a few displays. When we visited they had let in two tour parties who took over the two main rooms as well as other visitors like us. Could not see much and spent our time trying not to be walked over by the tour parties. Did not stay for the demonstration as the... More

You could prepare the whole exposition by printing online stuff at home. The only added value the museum provides is a praliné degustation, so if you want to pay 6€ for a praliné chocolate (less than 2€ at shops) please go ahead.

Very tiny so called museum, what a great word for more a chocolate demo for tourist that pay 6 euros to learn a bit about chocolate, to watch a chocolate maker doing it and that's all. Not really interesting.

Do not go here. That should be enough fair warning. If you go here you made a huge mistake. 6 euros to walk up two stairs into a dodgy makeshift kitchen to watch an erratic chocolate chef stir a pot of chocolate and struggle to speak English. You get a small piece of chocolate at the end which in this... More

A quaint little museum that presents the history of chocolate in the world as well as in Belgium. It is located right off the main plaza and well worth the 6 euros. The tour is self guided and presented in English and French. There are samples of dark single origin chocolate so you can get an idea of what the... More

The museum is small but interesting. The demonstration room really makes the museum worth its $5 entry fee. We watched chocolate being made, got to try multiple samples, and had a great time talking to the chocolate makers!

We saw this place as we were walking around the Grand Place. Only €6 entry which included a demonstration and some testing. Whilst waiting for demonstration, you could read up on how chocolate was made from start to finish. There was a chocolate fountain where you could pour some on to the biscuits provided. You could also try different types... More
