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 It was certainly different and we enjoyed the historical content of the museum.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.

When we got there, We got tickets in the form of a chocolate bar with our country flag on it, which was a realy nice touch. I had a student's discount, so if you're a student you should consider bringing an ID to prove it. The museum itself was nice but nothing more then this. What was realy great was... More

First, entry is a chocolate ticket. Terrific idea, and great chocolate! The rest of the museum is filled with some of the history of chocolate as well as many, many chocolate sculptures. Some of the sculptures are more impressive than others, but overall a high price for limited value.

The exhibits in this museum feature the work of local chefs from various competitions and their creations made of chocolate. Everything from famous landmarks and people to scenes from history. Incredible work all crafted in chocolate with amazing skill! The history of chocolate and the Barcelona connection are also covered very nicely. The museum store sells very wonderful chocolate. My...

First things first- you get a bar of chocolate as your ticket. Entry fee is only €5 which is very reasonable. The museum itself is quite small, and will only take around 30 minutes to an hour (even if you read in great detail all the boards). There were lots of great chocolate sculptures which was a real high point... More
