The museum is rather small but packed in a lot of information about the production of chocolate and the countries in which cocoa is produced along with some history of how it would have been drunk by the ancient people of South America. The museum itself was situated over three floors which were accessed by narrow wooden staircases. Upstairs the top room showed different types of cups used for drinking hot chocolate as well as clothing fashioned out of chocolate. On the lower floor there was a chance for a taste of the warm chocolate straight out the mixer given to you on a biscuit. Then there is a demonstration of the chocolate making process which is informative and interesting, in which praline truffles are made. The man demonstrating spoke in both French and English and was happy to answer questions. At the end of the demonstration there was another tasting with a choice between three flavours of truffle which was a nice touch. Worth a visit especially if you have purchased a Brussels Card.
