If you have extra time to stop by the Chocolate Museum in Barcelona. I would recommend making a short stop at the Chocolate Museum. It is a cute and interesting museum and the best part your ticket is a chocolate bar.

My wife and I were very excited to go and check out this museum and were severely disappointed. You basically walk around and read info and see chocolate statues and that is it. Not worth the 10 Euros.

This was a real surprise. I loved the fact your ticket was made of chocolate and it was really interesting and fun. A real find and right next to other museums so we didn't have to take a extra trip to get to it. Real value for money.

If you're obsessed with dark chocolate, you have to schedule a trip to the chocolate museum in Barcelona. Really interesting and fun even for teens who are hard to please. Don't forget to stop by their cafe for amazing chocolates and their signature hot dark chocolate which leaves you a bit light headed with that good dark chocolate buzz.

I would recommend stopping by if you are in the El BorBorn neighbourhood. It might not merit making a special trip. It is small and takes about 20 minutes tops to walk through. There is some general info on the history of chocolate and some sculptures made of chocolate. The gift shop is very nice and one's ticket is a... More

This was a nice little stop. With the price of admission your ticket is a chocolate bar. You get a nice history about chocolate and they also show you how it's made. Plus, there are very impressive chocolate art statues!

Disappointed in the museum, not much to see, mainly chocolate sculptures. Luckily we only went as part of a tour (Barcelona Chocolate Tours) which was excellent, Cris the tour guide was much more interesting & informative than the museum itself, would recommend going on one of her tours instead!

This is a fun attraction that could be joined with a visit to the Arc de Triomf, Barcelona Zoo, Parc de Ciutadella or the Musee Picasso. It is a combination museum and gallery - museum that shows you how chocolate came to have the importance it has today, and then a gallery of all different types of landmarks, individuals and...

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.
