This is a small museum that can easily be experienced in about an hour and a half. It briefly tells the history of chocolate and how it came to Europe through displays and video presentations. Most of the information was in English, albeit at the bottom of the frame below Spanish and Catalán. (There was a lot of bending down... More

I enrolled my grandchildren, ages 12,9,8, and 6, in a chocolate workshop. They spoke minimal Spanish, but the instructor spoke a little English. The kids learned quickly how to negotiate in a foreign country--and they had a fantastic time. At the end of the hour, they ran out of the workshop, smiling broadly and full of chocolate. After the workshop,... More

Upon the advice of previous tripadvisor reviews, we decided to skip the museum part of this establishment. We still stopped by the front desk to peruse their chocolates. We bought several varieties and did enjoy what we tried. The chocolate was not too special and was about the same quality as what you could find in any candy shop throughout... More

We visited this small and special museum after a friends' suggestion. It is something different to see if you visit Barcelona many times. The ticket costs 5€ and it's a chocolate bar (so you can taste this museum too). We eat chocolate almost every day but we don't care about its history. So, this museum is really interesting if you...

Please don't go....4 kids, 2 adults...€26 for 10minutes of nauseating rubbish. Rude receptionist should have been a warning. Mentioned to her that we thought t was expensive - she shrugged. Asked how long it lasted she said about 45-60 minutes. 10 minutes later, we reappeared on the Exit side frustrated and annoyed that we had spent that money on such... More

We were in the neighborhood and decided to give this a try. It definitely is not worth a special trip to view this! The admission was 5 Euro per person, with a small reduction for seniors and students. The person selling admission tickets also has to serve customers who wanted to buy chocolate so we waited a few minutes before... More

We visited this museum with our two boys on our last day in Barcelona. It was certainly different and we enjoyed the historical content of the museum.

We were looking forward to this museum as chocolate is a love in my life. There are three two minute movies telling the history of chocolate which we heard not a word as hoards of unruly and unsupervised children screamed and overran the facility. I went to the managers office to complain telling him that if this is a museum... More

I stopped by here on my way to the Picasso Museum, not knowing what to expect. The small entry fee also buys you a bar of chocolate (yummy!). There is some to read about the history of chocolate, some of the older equipment used in the industry, and lots of chocolate sculpture. One chocoholic commented that they must have great... More

An interesting little museum. On paying for entry you will receive a ticket made of chocolate. Inside you will see and hear the history of chocolate including the Inca mythology of its origins. There are many impressive sculptures made completely from chocolate. Watch out for Don Quixote and Tin Tin particularly. An amusing way to spend an hour or two.
