If you find yourself in Brussels, the “Chocolate Capital of the World”, then you have to visit Choco-story in Brussels. It is lots of fun end educative for kids. The highlight is the live demonstration with a chocolatier.

In a Nutshell

Chocolate Museum in Brussels

You will learn all about making chocolate from cocoa pods and beans…

…to the history of how Mayas and Aztecs used cocoa beans…

…and to how cocoa beans travelled around the world earlier. The audioguide is very helpful and you can go around the museum at your own pace

There is also a short movie on the journey of cocoa until it turns into chocolate

The museum is very kids friendly with a lot of fun and educative games for children

Also several exhibits are made of chocolate themselves

Live Demonstration with a Chocolatier

The highlight of the visit is the live demonstration with a chocolatier. They show how the famous Belgian pralines are made. Jean Neuhaus invented praline in Brussels in 1912

Chocostory is right opposite of Manneken Pis, so I had to add a photo here 🙂 You can also find a Manneken Pis made of chocolate in the museum

You also get to learn important things that make you feel less guilty when eating chocolate 🙂

Is Choco-Story in Brussels Worth It?

If you are visiting Brussels and you have enough time (it takes about 1.5 hour to visit), then Choco-Story can be a fun, short addition to your visit, since it is right opposite of Manneken Pis and very close to Grand Place.

Is it a must to see when you are visiting Brussels? Most probably not, but it is quite interactive and kids enjoy it. It is also indoors and might be a good idea for a rainy day.
