Very disappointed with what the museum offers. Not worth money or time. Definitely not recommended unless you don't have anything to do.

For the price - Adults: 6 euro / Students: 5 euro - you are better off spending it elsewhere. It is interesting but I did not think worth the price. It is very tiny. When you first walk in, there is a very large fondue pot where you can dip biscuit into delicious chocolate - no charge. The chocolatier is... More

Very small museum, we effectively paid €6 for one chocolate and a ten minute presentation. The museum consisted of the demonstration room and the gift shop, with a small area in between the two where you could dip biscuits in chocolate or eat small chocolate pieces. All in all, €6 would be better spent in one of the many chocolate... More

Small but interesting, great demonstration and samples of different chocolates. Demonstration was the best bit, very informative, in French, English and Dutch. Fun and a taste of that is made! My daughters 11 & 20 both enjoyed it.

Save both your time and money and avoid this "attraction". Dinky little shabby "museum", no real story told there. Complete ametuer hour. Took us all of 10 minutes to walk through the "exhibits". I would not have eaten any of the samples laying around and being fingered by every person who walked through there. Would have thought that given how... More

This is a very small museum but worth the stop. There are all kinds of chocolate to taste and a cool demonstration. The man leading our demonstration knows his way around cocoa!. Some neat chocolate figures on display. I found the differences in taste depending on where in the world the cocoa beans come from truly interesting :)

The museum is a disgrace to call it self cocoa and chocolate museum. The idea and need is great, but it's so tired and porly executed. Gold star though to the demo and testing executed by a very charming young man, he saved the visit!

Nice small museum. You will get through it quickly, gaining enough interesting information, but not too much. "Making pralines" show was nice - the lady speaks "French English", but you will understand. And you can taste as much chocolate as you want.

If you love chocolate, this is one of the places you should go! The museum isn't all that, you get some info and some tastings. But the workshop is fantastic. 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.
