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

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
