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.

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
