The museum is situated on De Neckstraat, next to the Simonis Metro station and is just a stone’s through away from the National Basilica in the near-by Elisabeth Park.
The new museum is housed in the former Victoria chocolate factory. Its exhibits tell the story of chocolate-making in Belgium. In addition to this visitors will be able to see how chocolate is made.
The museum even has a tropical greenhouse in which it will grow its own cocoa beans. Work on converting the former factory into a museum began 9 years ago and has suffered numerous delays.
