I've written a dll (in C++) which contains a single class with many methods.  I know I can access FUNCTIONS from a dll in a VB app using 'Declare', but is there a way I can access a CLASS in a dll?

Only by making it a com class and describing the class using IDL. Create a ATL project and see how IDL's work.

When you reference a DLL that has com classes it will show them in the object browser in VB. (Press F2)
