Welcome!

Choco-Story Brussels is the result of an encounter between two families who were passionate about the world of cocoa and chocolate.

The Van Lierde - Draps family, who created the Brussels Museum of Cocoa and Chocolate in 1998. Peggy Van Lierde, the only daughter of the founder of the museum, took over its running in 2007. In 2014 more than 75,000 people visited the Brussels Museum of Cocoa and Chocolate.

The Van Belle family, who created not only Choco-Story in Bruges in 2004, but the Chocolate Museums in Paris, Prague and Mexico. Eddy Van Belle and his sons Cedric and Kevy all share this passion for cocoa and chocolate and have collected many unique objects from all over the world.

Choco-Story Brussels was created in May 2014 when the two families united their efforts for the continual promotion of quality Belgian chocolate by opening their excellent educational, gourmet and great fun museum to the public.

As the visitor walks through the different exhibition rooms, he can learn the history of this precious commodity, from its origins to its transformation as a finished product. Samples of chocolate can be tasted during the visit and you can watch a demonstration given by our master chocolate-maker. Visitors are free to wander around the museum on their own or accompanied by a guide.
