About Museum Of Cocoa And Chocolate, Brussels
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 - Write a Review
It's cute and nice. It teaches how to make chocolate praline ans related chocolate stuff. But that's it. And there aren't much items to buy from
Totally disappointing museum for me.. maybe because of i am chocolatier there is just a little things interesting and the work shop was not good enough..
Very fun experience for only €6. The making of praline demonstration alone is worth it. A very funny and talented chef shows you how praline is made. There is a lot of chocolate to taste and there are a few floors explaining the history of chocolate and how it's made. Absolute recommended!
Meh. We had a Brussels card so got in for free (fortunately). Would have been quite annoyed if we'd paid. It was very disappointing, even the free chocolate didn't really make up for it. The demonstration was probably the best bit. Chocolate Village across the city is much better.
Have low expectations and you will like it. A compact exhibit with an interesting demonstration of actual manufacturing. 45 min are more than enough.
