The MUCC, Museum of Cocoa and Chocolate, lies only a stone's throw from the Grand Place and is a must for children and adults alike.
Housed in a typical Brussels townhose with a creaking wooden floor, the museum reveals the history of the invention of chocolate and how it was imported to Europe.
On the upper floors, objects of all kinds related to chocolate fill the rooms, making it feel like you are in a collector's house.
Tastings are served at the end of the visit to satisfy your cravings.
