Went here for a visit as free entry was included in our Barcelona travel ticket, not really an adult choice but from what we saw of the children's experience making chocolate it looked to be a real hoot as they were having a great, if somewhat messy, time of it. The exhibits were somewhat strange and made of cardboard, but... More

1) It's all about the chocolate sculptures and the chocolate bar (admission ticket). The kids will have fun but otherwise would put it lower on the priority list. 2) We went in 2009 and 2014; not certain it was worth the return trip. 3) RIGHT UPSTAIRS IS A PHOTOGRAPHY MUSEUM, circa 1900's Barcelona pictures. It's free, and will take about... More

This is a great place to stop after lunch. The museum is small but very interesting and you can stop in the shop at the end for a coffee and a piece of chocolate, or two.

Cute museum of sculptures built from chocolate. This would be great to bring children to, but for adults, it took probably 45 minutes to finish.

Well done displays in multiple languages with the option to run the film portions in different languages as well. Intricate artistic sculptures made from chocolate - with some amusement to be had locating the ones that had been infested with flies. Wonderful chocolate shop at the end (oh - and you get a bar of chocolate as your entry ticket... More

This is a fun little museum and you can be in and out in less than an hour. We enjoyed the history of chocolate and the sculptures made from cocoa products. Be sure to visit the gift shop and order a Barcelona Hot Chocolate. This is a thick and rich delight, so order a small or get a croissant for... More

Lovely little museum, tells the story of when chocolate was bought to Europe, and shows how it was made and produced from then, to this very day. Loads of artwork and chocolate sculptures. Would recommend for people all ages. If you have a Barcelona card you can access the museum for free and on entry we has given a free... More
