  • Great experience. Will take you on the cocoa bean journey from the cocoa plantations to the final products. At the end of the tour you can taste different flavors of chocolate. Digital tour guide...

  • Awesome experience, a must for chocolate lovers. Very interesting to learn about the process of making chocolate. Being from South Africa, it makes me proud to see that it all starts in fellow African countries like Ghana. I hate to sound critical now, because I really enjoyed the experience, but here some feedback on things that could perhaps be improved :) It does makes me a bit sad that only 3% of the supply ends up back in Africa. It would be nice to show information about fair trade chocolate to guests, and to promote sustainability. The exhibition is about the history, but perhaps the future for all could be thought about too. The experience can be improved at the start. The handheld audio guide you are given does sometimes not work as you expect, I had to go back to get an English one (I did ask for that, but it seemed to still be in Spanish), and in the 4th experience room we weren't able to get it connected - we held it up in the air, pointed it at everything we could find, and gave up. After that it took a long time to figure out you don't tap the audio guide to the white tags against each piece like an NFC tag, but rather hold it away from it more like an infrared control. You're given a very brief instruction at the start, but they also seemed to show that you should tap it, instead of point at it. Maybe that's why my language was still Spanish and not English initially. I believe due to the fact that there is a busy queue at the entrance, especially with corona measures in place, that the beginning is a bit too rushed and takes away from the experience.
  • Modern, unique and full of fantasy design. Great stories to hear from audio guides and a lot to learn about Belgium chocolate. 10 flavors of chocolate can be tasted in the end. However, once can be done with everything within 60 mins. Especially during Corona times, when everyone tastes the chocolate, a little more hygiene would be appreciated, as there's absolutely no way to keep spoons etc clean. Is it also worthy for the price payed? Depends, as for me, it's not worth the price due to the time and stuff one can do there. However definitely worth of chocolate fans.
