My 12 year old and I thought this was a brilliant museum. We’d highly recommend starting off with the Virtual Reality experience which is well worth the 5 euros if it’s not something you’ve experienced much before. My son loved it so much I paid another E5 for him to do it again! The audio tour was very good and there was an interesting selection of artefacts which takes you through the history of chocolate. There is chocolate to taste - we thought the amount was plenty if you are not a greedy person. There are also regular demonstrations. All in all, we spend about 2 hours in this pretty little museum in the heart of Brussels old town. We would definitely recommend it and cannot understand why it is not better promoted by the Brussels Tourism agency. We arrived at 10am on a Monday and it was not too busy.

Straight out of the hat, it's not what we expected.

We arrived early (which they didn't mind), paid for our "pre-reserved" tickets, got out headsets and complimentary free dark chocolate.

You then navigate around the building with many different displays about the story of chocolate. Each display had a little checkpoint that you scanned with your little audio box, each checkpoint would deliver a new audio file into your speaker. Now this would work if we only the video volume of the audio could be heard over all the other noise in the building.

We gave up with the audio tour shortly after the start as there were so many checkpoints and so many different random orders and too much noise to make out what was being said.

Towards the end of the tour is where everybody enjoyed themselves. Not only is there a tasting station where you can sample many different versions of chocolate.

Then there was a lady who did a short demonstration on how they make a certain variety of chocolate, at the end she let's you sample the finished product.

Once you've walked back round you hit gift shop.

Overall a nice idea which is poorly executed but with a few tweaks could be so much better.

I would say if you've got little kids with about 2 hours to kill and really take in all the info then this is for you.

Recommended only if you've nothing else to do but it can be missed.

In a great location just outside Grand Place, this centrally located museum is easy to get to and also very quick to learn more about chocolate than most people know. Be sure to plan and book ahead of time so you are not standing in a line to get in which at times can get pretty long. The audio tour is a little cheesy at times but overall this is a very informative and interesting tour. Go at your own pace and know that at some times, while they try to control the number of people, it can still get packed into some of the smaller rooms along the tour. You will be taken on a trip through the time lines and evolution of chocolate as we know it now and along the way can also get some tastes. Worth the time to stop and see what it's all about in a country that does the most amazing chocolate.

The museum/exhibition itself is informative. However during weekends it can get crowded and hard to enjoy. Moreover, because the topic of the museum is of great interest for a large public, not all visitors pay attention to being considerate with the other visitors. Consequently, the museum can get noisy and you might end up having to wait for people to pass to be able to hear the audio guide properly.

In this museum, you can see the history of chocolate.
I was given a piece of chocolate at the entrance. What is more, chocolates which you can taste were being exhibited. At the end, a craftsman showed how to make chocolate and I tasted it.
I think it would be better if the audio guide was compatible with more languages.

This was a bit average. Not many places to sit and listen, quite busy and to be honest mostly a bit boring. The best part is at the end when you get to taste the chocolate. Redeeming feature was the lovey lady who did a demonstration of how to make pralines and allowed us to try them too! Probably not worth the cost though

The Museum is very informative and the history of chocolate is detailed unlike some other chocolate museums we have visited.
It is more suited for adults than children as our teen wasn’t particularly interested after the Mayan part.
Worth going for a visit if you’re in the area.

Perhaps, surprisingly, this was not our first visit to a chocolate museum. The museum has a self-guided audio and tour guide options. I found the displays of early chocolate molds, and early merchandising memorabilia, to be particularly interesting. Allow 1 - 1.5 hrs.

Very interesting, we were a group of 4 aged between 14 and 79. It wasn't too big and you could go at your own pace. There are some stairs but I think they have stair lifts if requested. We all enjoyed the tasting at the end! The gentleman that did the demonstration at the end was very funny and and informative.

This is a good little museum which works well for children and adults. We visited as a more mature couple and enjoyed spending about 90 minutes here working through the displays. I found the audio guides particularly good and they didn’t require headphones which was great.

Near the end there is an opportunity to taste different kinds of chocolate, all were of high quality before you go into a demonstration area. Demonstrations start every 30-minutes and last for about 15 minutes with a chance to taste afterwards.

Finally, you get to a shop which had a good assortment of low priced chocolate plus more to taste.

The only thing that could have made the place better would be an on-site coffee shop.

Well worth a visit when it's freezing outside.
At only 9.5 euros it's not expensive for an experience that last approximately 90 minutes. Goes through the history
