This was great. The museum is situated just off the Grand Place and is very easy to find. It's not very expensive to get in, and there are discounts for elderly/students etc. Upon entering, we were faced with man sixed statues made out of chocolate - very impressive. We waited around for a talk about different types of chocolate, but we weren't waiting long. This talk was done in lots of languages - English, French, Dutch, German, Russian.. if you needed it to be. To demonstrate each type of chocolate (dark 70%, dark 90%, milk, etc) we were able to try some of each. Winner.
Afterwards, a young man demonstrated how to make truffles. He was entertaining and funny and we also got to try these. Upstairs is the ehibition with lots of information about the origin of chocolate and its history. It was interesting, and there were tasters of chocolate from different parts of the world. Some from Costa Rica, Peru, Ghana, and more.
So for a relatively cheap entrance fee, we got to try a lot of chocolate. We went to another chocolate demonstration during our stay, and it wasn't as good.
