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.

Pros: Easy to locate with plenty of signage from the metro Admission ticket is a chocolate bar. Incredible chocolate sculptures on display. Some cool historical and machinery exhibits Free with the BCN card. Cons: Its very short 30 minutes at the most. Its a bit boring. Its not interactive i.e. no smell or taste (much to the disappointment of chocolate... More

I am a huge chocolate lover so I was over the moon when I found out that there was a Chocolate museum in Barcelona. It was a bit underwhelming. A few cool chocolate sculptures and a complementary chocolate bar with your admission.

Best bit of the museum is the various chocolate sculptures- otherwise fairly standard stuff that is a 20 min distraction at best. Hot chocolate in the cafe is a thing of wonder however...

The 3 and 1/2 star average is about right. I give it four for the historical displays and machinery exhibit; I learned a lot about chocolate I did not know. Otherwise, the massive chocolate sculptures are slightly interesting to look at, but I soon got tired of them. But if you ever wanted to see Leo Messi in chocolate, here's... More

If you have extra time to stop by the Chocolate Museum in Barcelona. I would recommend making a short stop at the Chocolate Museum. It is a cute and interesting museum and the best part your ticket is a chocolate bar.

My wife and I were very excited to go and check out this museum and were severely disappointed. You basically walk around and read info and see chocolate statues and that is it. Not worth the 10 Euros.

This was a real surprise. I loved the fact your ticket was made of chocolate and it was really interesting and fun. A real find and right next to other museums so we didn't have to take a extra trip to get to it. Real value for money.

If you're obsessed with dark chocolate, you have to schedule a trip to the chocolate museum in Barcelona. Really interesting and fun even for teens who are hard to please. Don't forget to stop by their cafe for amazing chocolates and their signature hot dark chocolate which leaves you a bit light headed with that good dark chocolate buzz.

I would recommend stopping by if you are in the El BorBorn neighbourhood. It might not merit making a special trip. It is small and takes about 20 minutes tops to walk through. There is some general info on the history of chocolate and some sculptures made of chocolate. The gift shop is very nice and one's ticket is a... 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.
