    Museum of Cacao and Chocolate

    Since Belgium is mainly known for its delicious chocolates, it's only logic that we have a museum dedicated to this delicious sweet! In the museum, you are given an explanation of the production process of chocolate. There are also some nice sculptures made of chocolate.
    But of course, the best thing about it, is that you can taste! When you enter, you are immediately given a biscuit drown in delicious chocolate! Downstairs, you can follow the demonstration of a chocolate master and taste again!

    It's especially nice for children, or if you are really an absolute chocolate-fan. The entrance for adults is 5€, which is expensive for what it is! But the entrance for children under 12 is free!

    It is a nice museum about the history and production process of chocolat. It is really obvious it is sponsored by some chocolat brands by the way. You get a presentation how chocolat is made in forms, and you can taste some chocolat.
    Admission is 5,-

    Cocoa and Chocolate Museum

    This is Brussels - there has to be a chocolate museum. This one was not open until 1998 but by a lady from a chocolate making family so you can expect to get to know what you wanted to know about praline making, but will also be surprised by chocolate clothing and other things on display. There is also a small shop if you have been too tempted to resist the goodies. If chocolate does not interest you, you can still appreciate the wonderful old house - the Valk Huis which is so called as the Valk (Falcon) family lived here before and in fact made beer of the same name - if it's not one Belgian speciality it's another! :)

    CHOCOLATE MUSEUM

    I walked into a Belgian chocolatier in the main square and he pointed out the chocolate museum. Fascinated I decided to join him and check it out. It cost around 5€ entrance and this of course included eating some of the chocolates. There was a machine upstairs where you could get biscuits dipped in a fountain of flowing chocolate and downstairs a woman showed how the famous Belgian chocolates are made, (including samples). Its a great way to find out the process of one of my favourite foods but I found out that white chocolate is full of fat so I don't think I will be eating so much in future!

    I've always loved Chocolate but gained even more respect for it on trips to Mexico. Now to visit the Chocolate Museum was quite interesting.

    CHOCOLATE MUSEUM BRUSSELS

    Belgium is famous for its chocolate. The brand Callebaut is by far the largest producer of chocolate to be produced further into 'bonbons'.
    Entrance 1 Adult is 4 euro.

    On entry you receive a biscuit dipped in hot chocolate. Take care! It drips off so use the napkin you get with it. My face was all smeared with it, haha!
