Museum Of Cocoa And Chocolate - Review
Gabrielle Draps, who was married to famous chocolatier Jo Draps, opened this museum in 1998. It explores the history of chocolate from the Mayans to the modern times. Exhibits take you through the process of making chocolate. There’s a small but amusing collection of chocolate themed items such as chocolate dresses, pots, cups and sculptures. Of course there is a tasting session. True chocolate lovers can even take part in chocolate and praline making workshops. Don’t have too high expectations though; the museum is the love child of an amateur.

Museum Of Cocoa And Chocolate, Brussels Reviews
Very nice. Staff really enjoyed talking about the history of Chocolate. Not a very big place. But they you do get to try some great stuff!
Had a fantastic tour of their museum from a very knowledgeable and energetic gent called Luc. We were able to taste a range of chocolate and learn about the origin and evolution of chocolate. Definitely worth a visit for those keen on history or chocolate tasting. Lovely staff as well
It is a nice small museum where you enjoy a short video at the beginning and then go through the process of making chocolate and another video. You can make your own customized chocolates. It’s worth a visit. Very nice and helpful staff.
A good summary of cacao and chocolate, from roots in Maya and Aztec culture to today, with videos on how it is processed, information and stats... and tastings.. along the way. Fun for the curious visitor.
A good little experience to be sure! Won't take long to go through, as it's only a couple of floors. We'll worth waiting for demonstration though! This was the highlight for me!
