Really cool museum, with entrance ticket printed on a chocolate bar, historical characters molded in chocolate, history of chocolate development and large portraits in colored chocolate of famous teachers of chocolate confectionery (there is a professional school of chocolateand other confectionery next to the museum).

If you find yourself nearby, go check it out, the entrance fee is cheap. The part about the history of chocolate didn't interest me much, but the big chocolate sculptures from different competitions are worth seeing.

I have been to the museum in Paris and this is vey similar, however It was still worth going to. They had some amazing exhibits of chocolate sculptures from competitions and a lovey shop at the end. Unlike the Paris museum, this one did not have a demonstration.

Nice visit to make to learn about chocolate. Came with 3 friends. As we walked thru it, kept thinking about the chocolate & coffee shop. We all left fully laden with chocolate gifts, many of which never made it to the intended recipients! The traditional hot chocolate was THE best I have tasted. Haven't tasted anything close in the US.

This museum traces the journey of chocolate from its simple origins to its arrival in Europe, supplying videos, displays of tools used in production, and several samples of chocolate in an art form.

We visited the musem with our family. The museum consist in too much chocolate figures, but poor info about the chocolate process. Otherwise it's rich in historical info. It's cheap. Good quality-price relation. Good place to spend maximum 1 or 2 hours if you visit BCN

We always try to stop at the chocolate museum whenever we are in Barcelona. The hot chocolate alone is worth the trip. We bring bars of chocolate home to enjoy. The museum is interesting and chocolate outstanding!

Good exhibits and signs (in English as well) show history, growing and production of cacao and chocolate. Chocolate sculptures of many famous people and Barcelona buildings, including La Sagrada, are amazing. Good visit for kids and adults well worth 5 Euro admission, which includes a chocolate bar. You can buy thick hot chocolate drink at little cafe at the end.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
