good walk around

Not bad to wander around, nice enough museum though demonstration at the end showing how pralines are made is very good, worth viewing if you have free time

Enjoyed the Aztec exhibits and history of chocolate - really interesting topic although not what we were expecting. Would have liked to have seen more on modern day chocolate making, and more chocolate sculptures. Overall though, this was a good museum with lots to interest children too

I have seen choco-stories in Brussels and York before. This one in Bruges stood out because it had a large focus on cocoa (ka kaw) consumption in the Americas before the advent of Europeans. There are many items from Mayas, Aztecs, and I thought also Incas (?) used in preparing or drinking the cocoa. Many details are highlighted, such as... More

Apart from the Aztec bit the rest was boring as hell. Even the demonstration at the end was dull. Guy pour chocolate in the mould freeze add praline then freeze more chocolate freeze. Not worth the €8

Lots to read on the walls and things in display cases. Not very interesting, expected an updated and interactive experience. Seems dated.

Initially not on our itinerary but who can really resist chocolate. Upon entry we were given a chocolate bar with the ticket, and then we passed through several rooms explaining the history of chocolate. Sounds dull eh? Actually it wasn't, archaeological history, industrial revolution, chocolate sculptures, introduction and recinding of chocolate laws, its all here. Definitely worth a visit.

You have the opportunity to watch the history of chocolate and how chocolate is made from the past till today. Good work and well organized. The ticket costs 8 euros and they offer some chocolate in the entrance. You will not eat much chocolate as you may expect but overall it is not a waste of time. It is interesting... More
