With Belgium synonymous with chocolate, it's no wonder that Bruges has its very own chocolate museum. Choco-Story details the history of chocolate and cocoa, demonstrates how chocolate is made and offers plenty of opportunities to sample this sweet treat. Housed in a building that dates back to 1480, the museum itself is also a sight to see.

Past travelers offered mixed reviews for Choco-Story. Recent visitors said they definitely had their fill of chocolate, but warned you'll have to read a lot when working your way through the museum's displays. Most enjoyed the demonstrations at the end of the self-guided tour.

Entrance tickets cost 9.50 euros for adults (about $10.50), 5.50 euros (about $6) for children ages 6 to 11 and 7.50 euros (about $8.30) for children ages 12 to 18. Children younger than 6 can enjoy for free. Combo tickets to the Frietmuseum (a museum detailing the history of Belgian fries, among other potato products) are also available. Choco-Story is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (or until 6 p.m. in July and August) and is located in the historic city center close to other top attractions.
