The museum itself was too neutral (maybe good for small kids). But we really enjoyed drinking hot chocolate at the museum bar which serve some really good chocolate.

The pieces in the museum were fantastic but very small. It was very interesting to read how chocolate was developed through the age. We had some hot chocolate and lemon drizzle cake in the café. The hot chocolate was served in a small espresso cup, but even that was too big. The chocolate was very thick and rich.

Ok, so this place was something like 4 euros but not worth it. Got a chocolate bar ticket and that was the best bit. Website said it was a 2 hour tour. We did it in 20 minutes and that was a stretch! Just reading panels and watching videos. Few chocolate sculptures but nothing amazing. No demos. Disappointing

Small museum, some nice explanations about the history of chocolate but nothing more than that. Some chocolate sculptures. Price is reasonable though.

It takes you through a brief history of chocolate which was interesting and revealing in some ways. For example itcexplains the link between chocolate and Easter. At the end it has a cafe with delicious hot chocolate and several unique types of chocolate for sale (eg. chocolate with salt).

Its a very small museum that costs nearly €5 to get in although the ticket is a 20 gram bar of chocolate. not sure if it's novelty ticket or compensation. There is a mini cinema with information about the history and development of chocolate in Spain. Most of the time when I was there, it seemed like classes of kids... More

If you just have 2-3 days in BCN, forget it. If you live here, or if you have 4-5 days, or if you want to do something different, it is worth taking the chocolate making class. The museum all by itself...uhmm, though it is interesting, I wouldn't rush out to see it. As for the class...we made chocolate lollipops, petit... More

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
