Fodor's Review

Choco-Story may deviate from the historical quaintness found everywhere else in Brugge, but it makes for a diverting bookend if you've been trawling the delightful chocolate shops in town. This collection traces the history of the cocoa bean, from its origins in the Americas to its popularity in Europe. There are also chocolate-making demonstrations, and a chance to taste. It is certainly the best of a linked trio of disparately themed museums. The Lumina Domestica (Lamp Museum) is, rather confusingly, situated within the same building as Choco-Story. It traces the history of light, with some 6,000 lamps on display dating back to antiquity, and some wonderfully eye-catching 1940s posters advertising matches. Alternatively, if you're still hungering for food-based educational displays, there is also the Frietmuseum (French Fry Museum) at Vlamingstraat 33, which will tell you everything you need to know (and more) about the history of the potato, and why french fries should really be called Belgian fries. Opening times are the same for all three, with discount combination tickets available.
