We came in to get out of the rain and that was about the best bit. This is a dull, small, and unexciting museum. Just lots of old Chocolate sculptures and a few boards with basic facts plus a few objects involved in chocolate making. 15 mins and you are done! I wouldn't bother again.

We took the sweetest class. Made chocolate lollipops, chocolate bars, chocolate nut jumbles, white chocolate ganache cups with a wide selection of fresh fruits, salt, ginger and other toppings. Our teacher had infectious enthusiasm and such teaching skills that even beginners were able to make attractive and delicious products. Christina's knowledge made the personally guided tour most rewarding!

Small museum that provides a bit of history of chocolate, particularly related to Barcelona. If you are into chocolate sculptures there are quite a few. Only had 1staff on covering entery and cafe which meant delays. It was free entry with Barcelona card, but otherwise not something I would recommend unless you happened to be passing.

I thought it was so so but the cool thing is the ticket is a chocolate bar which was my favourite part. If you can have some pastries from the cafe. They are awesome!

Although small this museum is full of interesting facts (in both audio and visual forms) about the development of the chocolate industry through the years. I was particularly fascinated by the essential role Barcelona had in bringing chocolate to Europe. We liked the chocolate sculptures and overall thought that the entrance fee was value for money. I also liked the... More

Nice chocolate statues but that´s it. Chocolate history of course, but not made that interesting. Would have expected the shoppe to be larger. Tha chocolate bar ticket you get upon entrance didn´t even taste that good..

Worth half an hour or so especially if you are in old town anyway and free if you have a BCN card. Quite fun, your entry ticket is actually a small bar of chocolate. Not to my taste but they have a great number of very good statues and tableau made from chocolate. They have an interesting history of chocolate... More

Exhibits including the process of making chocolate in addition to award winning chocolate sculptures! I love that the "ticket" to get in is a piece of wrapped chocolate!! Of course, they have a delightful selection to purchase.. and definitely have a cup of hot chocolate.. it is smooth, rich, and warm.... a taste bud party in your mouth!

It wasn't difficult to locate the museum, compared to Picasso Museum which was nearby. The tickets were actually chocolate bars with barcode, so we could bring it back home. The big and small figurines made from chocolate were impressive. The children couldn't wait for get to the cafe to have their chocolate, which were available in various shapes and sizes.... More

As a chocolate lover this was top of my list of things to do in Barcelona, and it didn't disappoint! The tickets are chocolate bars, and if they pick up that you're visiting from another country they'll give you one with your national flag which is a nice touch. The highlight (other than getting to eat chocolate, of course) are... More
