I guess that being in Bruges the chocolate museum is a must. The museum is on several floors accessible by stairs although there is a lift if required. The exhibition is well laid out but there is a lot of reading to do and the...More

We visited here a few years back and it was a pleasant relief from a cold day but no more. This time we went with low expectations but were pretty surprised. The story of chocolate - history, production, marketing - was clear and well-presented and...More

Sometimes when you least expect it, you come across a hidden gem. Well keep on walking because the choco museum in Bruges is not one of them. You might imagine that this will give you an amazing insight into the history of chocolate in Belgium,...More

We were unsure whether or not this would merely be a tourist trap and little more. However, it was surprisingly interesting. Various floors had displays showing how cocoa is extracted and used as well as the history of chocolate making, drinking and eating. There was...More

I love chocolate but was disappointed with this museum. It explains the history of chocolate which is interesting but it’s only boards to read the information off. The demonstration at the end was ok and the chocolate samples were nice but I expected a lot...More

I don't think I've ever visited a more dull, lifeless and boring museum in my life - especially on a subject which should be interesting and fun! The exhibitions are pointless, loads and loads of reading about subjects which are tenuously linked to chocolate such...More

This was a very average museum. We enjoyed the chocolate samples, but the information was presented was a litle boring. There are lots of boards to read and yes, the information was interesting but you had to really commit to reading a lot of material....More

About 1-2 hours. It is much bigger than it looks on entry. We didn't realise at first that it is on 3 or 4 floors, plus a shop on exit. (Sorry for late response, only just seen it).
