Choco-story Museum - Review
Most children dream of working at chocolate factories from the minute they discover chocolate. At first it starts out as pure glee at the thought of having unlimited access to chocolate and then it grows into a desire to know how something this wonderful comes to be. Choco-Story, the chocolate museum, satiates the adults and the children who have this question. Housed in a building that dates back to the 15th century the museum displays the history of chocolate, from the Mayan civilisation's cacao drink to modern day chocolates. At the end of the tour the visitors are shown how chocolate is made and are given free samples. For those who don't know, Belgian chocolates are amongst the finest in the world. Perfect for the chocolate lover in you!

Choco-story Museum, Bruges Reviews
Spent a lovely couple of hours here. The story of chocolate is well laid out across three floors. There is plenty of activities for children too. You finish in the demonstration area and the chef gives you a hands on demo of making pralines. You get to taste them too for a small donation. Thoroughly recommend when you are in Brugge.
It's ok to visit. Free chocolate is just buttons nothing fancy. The live chocolate preparation is good and the guys are very patient and great at explaining. Overall it's basically a lot of pictures and ornaments from chocolate's South American history. Was expecting more focus on the Belgian chocolate but this is pretty general on the whole.
I would highly recommend this self guided and informative tour. You can eat as much chocolate as you care (though don’t try to take the freebies home please). If you’re bringing children, I would encourage them to do the kids activity—it will help keep them engaged while learning! The staff at the praline making demonstration were friendly and engaging. This is the kind of place you can spend a fairly short amount of time or even hours if you want to read all the printed info. There is also a short movie about chocolate as well as another smaller video about the societal impact of the cacao bean. I’m not sure I’d go back again but I would definitely encourage friends to go. Worth the money spent!
My 8 year old and I loved this place. Not only do you get “all you can eat” fine Belgian chocolate as you walk round, but it is genuinely interesting to learn about the history of chocolate and it’s development. At the end there is a great demonstration of how to make Belgian Chocolates too! And then you get to eat them as well. We were stuffed!
Amazing museum focused not just on the history of chocolate but also how this affected the people involved. Great displays and worth the entrance price for the chocolate you get to eat on the way round alone. This museum is paired with a few others including the Frietmuseum so definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
