Choco story brussels

CHOCO-STORY BRUSSELS, the Chocolate Museum.

A must-see for all lovers of Belgian chocolate.

Choco-Story Brussels invites you to journey through the world of chocolate from its origins to finished product. A gourmet discovery to promote the quality of Belgian chocolate, renowned worldwide.

In 2019, the museum gave itself a new showcase at 41, Rue de l’Etuve, right next door to the Manneken Pis. Visitors have been welcomed to the 1,800 m2 space since 15 February 2019.

Bigger, more interactive and still just as delicious.

Dive into the world of cocoa and chocolate and walk through a Mayan temple where beans were already eaten 5,000 years ago; board Cortés’ ship to bring cocoa beans to Europe; discover how chocolate was eaten at the Court of France in the 17th century and how the “Praline” was created in the early 20th century in Belgium. You’ll know everything there is to know about cocoa farming and processing. And to end the visit, watch one of our chocolatiers demonstrate how famous artisanal Belgian pralines are made.

There are also tastings during the tour.

The museum has been located next to the Grand-Place in Brussels for 20 years. It’s the story of the meeting of two families with a passion for chocolate: Peggy Van Lierde, granddaughter of the founder of Godiva and the Van Belle family.
