At only 9.5 euros it's not expensive for an experience that last approximately 90 minutes. Goes through the history of chocolate with an audio handset ending with a short demonstration. Staff all brilliant, helpful and polite

Already been to a chocolate history museum in France last yet but thought we’d give this one a try too. So glad we did as the individual hearing sets were well worth it so that we could hear the history in our language plus extra info should we want it. Extremely interesting and such a mouth watering tour we all needed hot chocolate then we had the hand made chocolate demonstration at the end and got to taste some of this naughty goodness.........please do visit it’s well worth it but not if you are on a diet:)

Amazing experience, the chocolate museum took us to exotic places and old times, to the origins of chocolate! From the cultivation of coco beans to ships they transfer them to the west, and from the process of making chocolate in the past to a real life demonstration as we can see a chef making pralines, and we tried some too, along with many different types of chocolate during our tour. We also saw some very interesting chocolate sculptures and amazing antique chocolate boxes and vending machines from last century!
A must see for chocolate lovers!

The title of my review says it all. This is a small museum that has a great chocolate story, but it is quite dated.

Your museum fee includes a handheld listening device that you tap on several squares on the wall that give you the audio behind the exhibit you are looking at.

In short, it tells how chocolate came to Belgium and how it got the reputation it has today. Sad to tell you that the cocoa beans are not even grown in Europe.

The plus is that you get to try five different chocolate chips as well as a Belgian “praline” at the end of your tour.

This museum is always crowded. It was somewhat annoying that you keep bumping into other visitors trying to tap on the audio squares.

This would not be on the top of my list if I was in Brussels for only a day.

When in Belgium, the chocolate is a must! So obviously, I had to book a tour to the chocolate museum! It was great, the chocolate makers showed us how they make the chocolate molds & at the end we even got a taste. The rest of the tour was the history of chocolate and how its made, a must for any chocolate enthusiast like me.

A terrible place and a total waste of 14 euros. The staff are extremely rude and do not explain anything. When I asked for my self-guide to be changed into English (even though the cashier had asked), it was met by a sigh and a disparaging comment in French. The museum itself is very crowded, small, very hot and, frankly, extremely boring. The only highlight are a few chocolate buttons towards the end. I would totally avoid and save your 14 euros to buy some lovely chocolate in this wonderful city.

We spent a nice couple of hours walking around and tasting different sorts of chocolate here. The museum is well put together and gives a very good insight as to the history of how we come to have the chocolate we have today. Covers lots of different regions and eras.
Well worth a visit

My wife and I went together. We learned all about chocolate from harvesting the cocoa beans to making wonderful chocolate from them. The price of entry includes an audio guide and chocolate tastings.
It was a very nice visit and we loved it and we recommend it for families and anyone who loves chocolate.

I bought tickets for the choco story in Bruges by mistake and not the brussels. With Bruges being too far away we went here to ask if we could go on this tour.
Vanessa and jean-Christophe went out of their way to make enquires if the tickets were valid here. They made a few phone calls and it was ok. Thank you so much to both of you for doing that.
The tour lasted about an hour. Very informative. If you are interested in the history of chocolate making this is for you.
Very cheap as well. We booked online and it was £17.64 for two adults. It wasn’t that busy so you can pay on the door.
It is 30 second walk from the Manneken pis statue.

I was expecting to see lots of chocolates being made, maybe a couple of decent length demonstrations with exhibits on the history of making chocolates in Brussels. The museum was actually more about the history of coco with lots of animatronic style models (though stationary) of the kind you find in theme parks. It wasn't as large or as well done as I was expecting. I think it could still be an interesting outing for families with children, but isn't a full-on museum for those actually interested in how chocolates are made.
