4 euro to get in, but you get a chocolate bar! Lots of chocolate sculptures inside, and some brief history of chocolate. I spent about 30 minutes inside the museum. They claimed there was free wifi, but it would not connect.

The chocolate carvings are amazing, but overall, I would skip unless you don't have anything better to do. Our young adult children insisted on going here and they went through it in probably 10 minutes. They weren't as interested as they thought they'd be.

Nothing too interesting to see, just a few chocolate statues. I expected to see more information about the origin and history of chocolate and about the process of making chocolate, but nothing of that sort was found in the museum. We entered and left the place in 5 minutes - a waste of 5 euros per person.

We stumpled upon this museum on our way to the picasso museum. 5 euro entrance fee, Your ticket is a chocolate with your country flag on the wrapper (was quite surprised that they had an icelandic version). They offer free-wifi and free audio guide (although the wifi wasn't working for me when I visited, it didn't matter) Plenty of really... More

It's quite over priced I grant you, I wouldn't have gone were it not for a free entry voucher I had, but actually the museum had a well done display of the intriguing history of chocolate, as well as a lot of displays of chocolate sculpting which I found very impressive. It's also one of the few attractions not over... More

15min - 30 mins max to get some more information around chocolates. The concept is always an attraction for kids but as a museum it is average not outstanding. The ticket has a small chocolate bar so effective entry cost is like 3-4 euros which is guess is ok. Close to picasso museum and musica palau catalunya

This chocolate museum is nicely done- with info on all aspects of chocolate but ultimately it's not that interesting. Maybe more so if you have kids. There are a lot of sculptures made of chocolate, and you get a little chocolate bar for your "ticket." We decided to try the hot chocolate at the little cafe, because I had read... More

The title really explains it well. If you go, you'll see a lot of cool sculptures made of chocolate of the various monuments and attractions in Barcelona. However, if you don't go, you really won't lose sleep over it. The coolest thing is that your ticket to get in is a chocolate bar.

Really, just okay, I don't think my kids were even very impressed. Beautiful sculptures made of chocolate and videos talking about the history of and making of chocolate. I wish this museum was more interactive, with hands on activities or chocolate tasting, especially when talking about early/ancient chocolate making. Visit if you want to walk through and gaze at chocolate... More

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.
