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...

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..

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.
