I particularly enjoyed...
James_M, Apr 2023
I particularly enjoyed the chocolate-making demonstration at the end of the visit. The chocolatier explained the process clearly and even provided samples of the finished product!
Best chocolate museum in the world!
Keith_C, Mar 2023
The chocolate factory is an amazing experience for both children and adults. It is so informative and interesting and you get to see a live demo of chocolate making at he end. So good

A Chocoholics Mecca
James_G, Apr 2022
Very good historical perspective on the history of chocolate - from its origins to modern day. Audio guide is very useful. Make sure to attend the live presentation at the end of the tour!
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Dear James, thank you for this wondeful 4 star review. We are happy to see that you had a great time at Choco-Story.
Good for a rainy day
Jack_C, Nov 2021
Informative about the history and process of chocolate, but not so in detail about the link with Belgium. Not curated in the best way, but good chocolate demonstration at the end. Fine if it's raining, but not a priority visit.
Response from Host, Jan 2022
Thank you for your nice review. There is no actual link with Belgium specifically, more with Europe as whole, except for the fact that we make the best chocolate. ;p That is explained on the third floor of the museum.
Two thumbs up
Aaron_H, Oct 2021
Excellent experience. Very interesting. Great samples at the end of the tour. Exhibits told a story.
Really nice experience for a family trip

Friendly staff, the audio devices are easy to use really Nice experience for family with kids around 5 to 6 yrs old.
Fun afternoon in Bruges
Kathy_S, June 2019
8 of us were on a Baltic Sea cruise and chose to go to the Choco-story Museum in Bruges. We took the train from the pier to town and then grabbed a taxi. Very fun afternoon and lots of chocolate history to absorb. Would recommend
The price is too high

Count on great tasting chocolates, and were given 1 variety of chocolates to try. That's too bad. At the entrance give small milk chocolates - nice.
The trip to Choco Factory was really...
Inder K, Jan 2018
The trip to Choco Factory was really good and informative. But the chocolate shop was a bit of a disappointment, I expected more variety, also in terms of creativity.
Belle découverte

Le musée est hyper interactif, on a adoré qu'on nous laisse le temps de la visite. La représentation a la fin est top. Tout était très clair.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Bonjour, merci pour les jolies comentaires. Nous sommes heureux que la visite du musée vous a plu.
Variétés des explications...
AnneMarie_J, Jan 2023
Variétés des explications et des objets. Votre collection de tasses, chocolatières et autres objets est impressionnante. J'aurais du visiter votre musée avant d'aller au Mexique .
Muy bien
Eugenia_B, Jan 2023
El chocolate a degustar y la zona del barco. La explicación de cómo realizan los bombones. Nada más que añadir
Passionnant à faire le même à Paris
CLAUDINE_G, Nov 2022

Super visite
Aurelie_L, Nov 2022

Le chocolat dans tous ses états ou États 😉
Christian_D, Feb 2022
Belle découverte de l 'histoire du chocolat de la culture de l' arbre jusqu' aux produits finis sous toutes leurs formes, avec toutes les étapes, les origines... Très intéressant et avec une démonstration très bien présentée !!
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Bonjour et merci pour les 4 étoiles! Nous sommes très heureux de voir que la visite vous a plu.
Chocolade museum
Doriane_B, Nov 2021
Hadden meer een persoonlijke rondleiding verwacht. Dit was nogal onpersoonlijk. Maar we kregen wel veel informatie wat het wel de moeite maakte
À éviter
Dylan_G, Nov 2021
Un faux musée qui n'offre aucune expérience tout en abusant du nombre d'audio guides. Préférez aller boire où manger du chocolat dans les nombreux salons de thés de Bruges !
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Bonjour, Je suis désolé que vous n'aimiez pas le musée. Les audioguides sont là pour la commodité des visiteurs. Lors de la réservation de votre billet, vous pouvez également opter pour une expérience atelier ou une visite régulière.

Heel mooie en educatieve ervaring. Deze review schrijven daarentegen valt dit tegen. Als ik na 1 zin niet gewoon kan bevestigen dan missen jullie toch gewoon veel positieve reviews van mensen die afhaken 🤷🏻‍♂️
