The small privately-owned museum off the Brussels Grand Place is dedicated to the world-famous Belgian chocolate, the universally recognised Belgian national pride and treasure. Visitors are offered a tour of the history of chocolate - from the origins of the cocoa beans and the Aztec times when chocolate was as valuable as gold, to the invention of the confections known as Belgian pralines in the 20th-century Belgium. Under the guidance of a professional praline master, you can explore the process of praline-making in practice. The museum also features a selection of the most outlandish objects made of chocolate and 'chocolate fashion' - fabrics with hand-painted chocolate patterns designed by Belgian designers and dresses adorned with chocolate drops. The tour concludes with a tasting session from a chocolate fountain.
