Choco-Story: The Chocolate Museum in Bruges

Attraction details
Reviewed July 14, 2013

The Museum sits in a beautiful building outside the crowded touristic routes.
On 3 floor multilingual panels explain the history of chocolate from the Atzec to today.
A demonstration is organize every half an hour showing how pralines are manufactured (magic is stripped out as every chocolatier uses the same raw materials supplied in small grains by big industries), but there's not enough room and the space will fill up quickly.
You will be able at the end of the demo to taste one or 2 pralines.

As with most of the musuems in Brugge they load you up with alot of info displayed nicely on boards. This is not a chocolate factory as it appears some believe it to be. It is a chocolate musuem. You learn about the history of chocolate and the tools used in its creation which I found very interesting. The display at the end is good if short and is a lovely end to the musuem. This is not a suitable place for children and to its credit it doesn't advertise it's self as such. Cadburys world this is not but if you have patience and an interest in history this will be a little treat.

It's small, overcrowded, stuffy and completely uninteresting!

Now I'm a chocoholic, so mention chocolate and I'm there! I was keen to learn a little more about one of my favourite pastimes and the Belgian story.... But it's so boring and lacks any interaction, we lasted just 10 minutes.

Also seems to be popular for tour guides to dump their groups here and there is no air con or even any ventilation. What should have been a building filled with the smell of sweet chocolate, was actually filled with the stench of sweat!

Also just one person serving the people buying tickets for entry and the shop. Queues were ridiculous in the shop and made getting out of this dump even harder.

Spend your money elsewhere..... maybe even on chocolate! ;-)

I was intrigued by the idea of a museum dedicated to Chocolate, and found this one to be very interesting. The top three floors track the history, harvesting, and processing of cocoa from beans to bars, while there is an entertaining and educational demonstration of how chocolate candies are made. Well worth the visit; comprehended on Brugge City Pass. Side note: the chap on the admission desk was very helpful and flexible, as we arrived near closing, and though we were (as he said we would be) unable to do the museum justice, we did gain entry, cruise the historical part, enjoy the demo, and of course were able to pick up some small items in the gift shop! Thanks to this fellow.......
