The Chocolate Museum
The museum of cocao and chocolate is a museum for all who are fond of Belgian chocolate. You will have the opportunity to discover the world of chocolate from its history and making proccess, to a demonstration given by a master chocolatier.
Located near the main square of Brussels, the aim of the museum is to share all with all fans the story about chocolate: from its origin with the Mayas and Aztecs, to the long voyage for coming over from South America to Europe (passing through France, Spain and Belgium). In its magnificient location built in 1697 and classified as national heritage, the “De Valk” house will welcome you to show how the cocao bean is grown and processed to chocolate, with a presentation of all the stages of fabrication.
A “gourmand” visit is possible to be organised for you, on demand, with some elaborate explanations concerning the historical center of Brussels and, of course, also about chocolate.
The Chocolate Museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 16:30 pm; Closed on Monday.
