“Delicious tasting”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

This was a great way to start our time in Brussels. It is very fairly priced considering all the chocolate samples you get. After you pay someone gives you a shortbread cookie that was just dipped in melted chocolate, it was amazing. Then you get to watch a demonstration on how chocolate is made! The rest of the museum is interesting as well but the tasting and the chocolate demonstration were top notch.

“Fantastic museum in the heart of old Brussels”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

This small museum is a great activity for your day in Brussels. During this time you will learn a great deal about the history of chocolate production and for chocolate lovers have a couple of free samples. The educational chocolate demonstration was both interesting and well delivered.

At only €5 a great activity

“Okay for short visit”
Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

Didn't spend long here. Only a couple of floors of things to see and not much there. The chocolate demonstration was interesting and probably the best bit. Wouldn't really go again.

“If you got spare time when in Grant Place.....”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Next to Grant Place. 5.50 euro. Old and small building, 3 floors with a bit poor exhibitions describing the history of chocolate producing.
The entrance host the main attraction which include short demonstration accompanied by explanations in English, French ,Dutch, of creation of nice forms of chocolate templates.
you will get some taste of small samples of different percentages of dark chocolate and some white chocolate as well.
overhaul disappointment for us.

“Short and sweet!”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

My son loved this place as it concentrates on the essentials. First you taste chocolate (biscuit dipped into big swirling vat of the lovely liquid) and then you see a demo of how to make filled pralines and then you taste one. You get a simple explanation of how chocolate is made, how to made chocolate sculptures, how to make your own shapes at home. Afterwards you can visit the top floor of the tiny house and learn more about where it comes from, fair trade etc. we were disappointed that only two tasting were included, but otherwise it's a fun and educational stop just off the Grote Markt. And after you can always head off to one of the many nearby places to eat waffles overflowing with chocolate sauce to give into that desire...
