It's a small building where the story of chocolate has been laid out from Cocoa production to its conversion into final product. The fun part was in the end where we got to see process of making pralines. Overall time needed is maximum 45 minutes.

We've done both Hershey world and Cadbury world, and you can learn as much here. It's a small and pretty old fashioned place, although being able to compare plain Ecuadorian with Ghanan chocolate was a revelation. The real highlight was the demonstration of chocolate making (filled chocolates). It's a personal demonstration with a chance to try a chocolate afterwards. I... More

Worth visiting if you know nothing at all about chocolate and cocoa. There is exhibition in several rooms and also quick tour and explanation how a chocolate made. Don't expect to taste various chocolates - this is not the place, you will get only 1-2 pieces at the end of the tour.

The 6 euro admission allows entrance to an old house used as a museum on three floors. Didn't see an elevator. Read the short text at every display. A chocolatier gives a demonstration every half hour. He was friendly and conducted the demo in English for us and answered our questions. Several opportunities to sample chocolate. Easy to find just... More

Much more than this you can learn at the Museum of Cocoa and Chocolate. Learn about the History of chocolate and visite the nice performance: how to make belgian sweets. Learn about the taste of cacao mass, cacao butter and chocolate with and w/o sugar. Just € 6,- / adult.

The demonstration was perfect for my 4 year old she loved it. The guy was funny and nice. It was interesting to hear all the facts, we gained knowledge and got to try some chocolate! It was pretty cheap and worth it! I would recommend this museum over the other since this one is very central.

A small but quite enjoyable museum. Best bit for me was the chocolate making demonstration. For us the chocolatier spoke in English. Being able to taste the cocoa solids and cocoa butter and different qualities of chocolate was great. He had a friendly personality and was willing to answer questions. Being handed a biscuit at the fountain by a man... More

The museum is tucked away just off the Grand Place but is well worth tracking down. It is not your traditional museum with slightly more 'hands on' exhibits but it is still very informative. There are samples to try within the main museum to compare the areas where cacao beans are grown. The main attraction is the chocolate making demonstration... More

If you are expecting a large clinical museum then you will be disappointed. What you get is a few rooms with chocolate related exhibits. Of note are the hysterical chocolate facsimiles of the mannekin pis and a few other people who are rendered with little or no likeness. But they are in chocolate. The chocolate demo is informative if you... More
