The museum is about all things chocolate. It's quite small, on several floor, and with exhibits about the growing, production, and selling of chocolate. However the museum is not very deep in any of these areas. really just touching the surface. And it wasn't all that interesting. I had expected more. Saving graces (given the fairly low cost) are the... More

In this quaint little museum near the Grand Place, you can watch the professional chocolatier demonstrate how Belgian pralines are made with a sample tasting following the demonstration. On the second floor, there is a large display of cocoa beans, cocoa farming accessories, and maps of all of the major cocoa sources around the world. The museum is very small... More

The museum itself is very small and not very well laid out, lots of old creaky floorboards and stairs however there is lots of free chocolate provided and is good value for 6 euros. The chocolate making demonstrations are run every half hour or so and was the best part of the visit to this museum. It's easy to walk... More

This Little museum is tucked away on a side street off of the grand place and was a lovely little find. It cost €6 to get in to the museum with an added bonus of watching a master chocolatier hand make delicate little pralines. The skills and the charisma of the young chocolatier were amazing with him switching from French... More

We bought the Brussels card, so we didn't have to pay extra to get in. There was demonstration of making chocolate, history and types of chocolate, cocoa beans and we get to taste some too.

Wasn't expensive to get in. There's 2 floors of cocoa history etc, a demonstration and taster if you're there at the right time and samples everywhere. Cheap to buy too.

Was an interesting exhibition Found it a tad boring at time But lucky I arrived around the time where the master chocolatier did a demonstration and got to taste some chocolate! Don't think it's worth the entry fee to enter the museum unless you have the Brussels Card which gives you free entry Worth a look though!

Since I am a ultimate chocolate lover, this was a highly exciting museum to visit. It is really cheap (€4.5 for students) and located in the city center - only a few steps from Grand Place. The museum is located in an old house and has 3 floors to visit. The staff is really helpful and tourists with heavy backpacks... More

Small museum in the devoted to the history of chocolate just behind the Grand Place. Lots of intereSting background and some chocolate to taste. The highlight is a demonstration by a master chocolatier about how to make truffles and chocolate rabbits.

We were excited to visit this museum as we were in a country renowned for its chocolate and it was only 6 euro each. It was a quaint place and old building but the information was limited and displays were dated. We had just missed a chocolate demonstration so they let us go upstairs to the museum first. It was...
