Belgium, Bruges is known for its chocolate production, so the city has a chocolate museum, unsurprisingly!
The Chocolate Museum in Bruges is called Choco-Story and tells the history of chocolate and how it found its way to the streets and stores of Belgium and Europe.
The museum is quite interesting, even if you’re not a chocolate lover.
You can read the story of how vital the cocoa trade was. We take chocolate for granted now, but cocoa had great value and was considered a luxury years ago.
There’s even a movie to watch on the history of chocolate.
After the circular walk, you walk into a room where you can see a chocolate-making demonstration.
They give these demonstrations twice an hour, lasting approximately half an hour each.
The great thing is, at the end of the demonstration, everyone gets a taste of the beautiful Belgian chocolate.
Belgian chocolate is world-famous, and although the price is relatively high, it is worth the cost for high quality.
You’ll notice a big difference between the taste of Belgian chocolate and the cheaper ones we eat more regularly.

You’ll also find the Lamp Museum in the same building as the chocolate museum, which could be an exciting place to visit.
After you’ve visited Choco-Story, take a walk around the streets of Bruges.
You’ll notice there are many small chocolate shops, and most of them make the chocolate on-site that they sell.
They will even let you sample a taste or two.
