  • The museum "Choco-Story or The Chocolate Museum" is located just a few meters from the Grote Markt and deals with the history of chocolate, as the name suggests. Admission costs 6 euros or is free for Brussels Card holders. Open daily from 10:00 to 18:00. The museum is not too big and also seems a bit full or confusing. Nevertheless, there are many interesting exhibits and the best: demonstrations of the pralinee production take place regularly. With us this made a very sympathetic Central American, all the spectators were wonderfully entertained and laughed a lot. And to top it all:-) You could also try the delicious pralines :-)

  • A visit to this museum allowed us to learn more about the history of cocoa, its use and its transformation into chocolate. A demonstration by a master chocolatier and a small tasting of pralines closed this interesting visit with an audioguide.
