A fresh look at Chocolate
Feb 2020
A modern museum that takes you through the history of chocolate and its adoption by the west. Extremely well presented, well laid out and uses modern technology to achieve its aims. The "chocolate bar" personal tour guide is an amazing idea that works really well, and the story is exceptionally well told.

Even if you don't like chocolate this is a place to visit - watch out for the anaconda!

Amazing Museum! Definitely watch the demonstration!

We visited the Museum of Cocoa and Chocolate and were really happy! It was a really informative museum, literally full of facts and information - but interactive and entertaining too! We watched a praline/chocolate tempering demonstration with Mario was was such a funny entertainer! He made us laugh but again, educated us on how to make perfect chocolate and pralines! We then got to taste them and they were amazing! There is bits of free chocolate throughout which is a nice touch and the gift shop at the end is very reasonably priced and sells gorgeous chocolate!

A must visit for all ages! We thoroughly enjoyed this!

Great experience

This is really a must visit in Brussels. A lot of very interesting information very well presented and a professional chocolate making demonstration at the end. The optional 3D-movie is best to save for the children, though.

Museum of Chocolate

Museum of Chocolate. Interactive. Learning about the History of Chocolate. I've already been to Cadbury World in the UK but it was a great refresher. A room full of free chocolate and a demonstration of how to make it.

Found this museum by accident when walking to the big green church. Wonderful time there, saw how they make their famous chocolates and had quite a few tastings as they hand them out freely.

Worth a visit

Previously unaware of its existence. Stumbled upon it while we were strolling around the centre of Brussels. Set back from a main street. We found it informative & interesting and an enjoyable stop. The free audio guide was very good & easy to use.

Who doesn’t love chocolate? I come from a town that makes chocolate and had a small museum. This however was fantastic and has great interactive displays including tasting at the end! You will see how chocolate was made from the Aztec’s right to modern time, including someone making fresh chocolate for you to try! Great for all ages!
