This was a great short experience in a lovely, cosy museum. Especially the demonstration on how to make pralinés was very amusing and interesting.

Tiny but interesting - moreso for chocolate lovers. Tells the origins and global history of chocolate through pictures, wall posters and artifacts. Some chocolate tasting available, and lovely funny chocolatier guy explained how pralines are made. All in all, a good way to spend an hour and worth the 6 euros.

The museum is quite small, in a town house over 3 floors, but interesting! There's a demonstration of chocolate moulding which was fun to watch, and you can eat as many tasters as you like! A bit pricey (5 euros for students) but I made up for it in chocolate!

I had been to the chocolate museum in Paris and it was so much more informational, educational, and a lot more chocolates for sampling than this one in Brussels. Ticket for this museum is €6, while the one in Paris is €10...the difference of €4 is totally worth it! €Do keep your appetite for chocolate for the one in Paris.

This museum has only a few small rooms housing exhibits consisting mainly of photographs and written explanations. It would not take long at all to examine each of the displays. However, I did learn more than I previously knew about chocolate, including some fascinating facts about its history and its production. The live demonstration of chocolate-making was interesting to watch.... More

Ok for 6 euros I think it was and a demonstration which wasn't in English so didn't have a clue what the guy was saying. Lots of help your self to same pots out which didn't look particularly clean. It reminded me of the statistics of the peanuts on the bar scenario where they check the germ level and there... More

From the tasting experiences of nibs to the chocolate waterfalls to the clothes made from chocolate, this is a fascinating experience for the those who are chocolate fiends or agnostics and all in between. The best part of the Museum by far is the demonstration of handmade chocolates. It was all-in-all highly entertaining and recommended for all visitors of Brussels.

The demonstration of making chocolates is very nice and you can try different types of dark chocolates. It only has small place for seats.

What a horrible waste of money! The museum is a rip off and they are rude and unprofessional If you have six euros to burn go to a nearby chocolate store and buy a 100 g of chocolate!

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