Chocoladesoorten proeven in de smaakhemel

Get ready for the magical story of our national pride.

Say Belgium, and chocolate immediately comes to mind. Belgian chocolate is world famous. The love story between this small country and the sweet delight has been thriving for generations.

In 14 thematic rooms, we will take you on a 60 to 90 minutes journey and tell you the story of our Belgian chocolate. The tour starts in the cocoa plantations of the equator and follows the cocoa bean to world’s largest cocoa storage port in Antwerp. A gigantic fantasy machine demonstrates how chocolate is made and where the velvety smooth taste originates from.

During your tour through the museum you will find chocolate traditions, history, brands, products and innovations that have built its worldwide reputation.
