“Close to the palace and interesting to see how do the make chocolate”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

This place is close just next to the palace and easily you will miss it unless you ask form some one or the tourist information center will guide you. It is located at the side lane next to the palace. There is a entry fee and you can taste different types of chocolates over there. The chocolate processing will be explained to you mainly in french and English but the day we visited the guides English knowledge was not that good but he was manage to explain us most of the things.

“Small but worth a visit.”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

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.

“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.
