Good for a rainy day

Choco-Story: The Chocolate Museum in Bruges
Informative about the history and process of chocolate, but not so in detail about the link with Belgium. Not curated in the best way, but good chocolate demonstration at the end. Fine if it's raining, but not a priority visit.

Choco-Story: The Chocolate Museum in Bruges
8 of us were on a Baltic Sea cruise and chose to go to the Choco-story Museum in Bruges. We took the train from the pier to town and then grabbed a taxi. Very fun afternoon and lots of chocolate history to absorb. Would recommend
