You can probably fill an hour here, not overly expensive for a family of four, for €20 but not massively innovative, with the exception of the chocolate bar ticket, which is a nice touch. I wouldn't go out of my way, and baffled it's a top tier TripAdvisor attraction, but it's well presented, easy to find, and helpfully accessible to... More

Unless you're doing a course at the museum which involves actually working with chocolate, do not go there, do not take a detour, go anywhere else, frankly. I don't know, perhaps the nearby museum of the mammoth - whatever. Barcelona has such great attractions, please please please do not waste your time going to this "museum". Poor sculptures made out... More

It costs 5 euro for a chocolate bar which is also acts as your entrance fee. Basically this is an exhibition dedicated to the art of chocolate sculptors with a few interesting sections on the history of chocolate. If you happen to be in the area I think its work a visit. There are a lot of very negative reviews... More

I have to say I wasn't impressed. The only good thingbIncan say is the ticket is a little chocolate bar . There are sculpures inside and some pretty cute.,but it felt like we paid to get into a homemade chocolate store and there are lots of those around.

The kids wanted to visit the Chocolate Museum to prepare Easter eggs and the online booking was requested. There were several available sessions, but getting closer to the days, the session in English from being empty, they just disappeared a couple of days before :-( As a result we could not attend the family event and we only purchased the...

This place is a must for chocolate lovers. The entry is only €5 and the tickets are made of chocolate. You can also pay extra for chocolate making classes but you need to book in advance (there is a website). The museum shows you the history of chocolate in the form of reading boards, chocolate making objects and videos. Definitely... More

If you plan tour visit in advance, you might be able to partisipate in one of their chocolatemaking activities. This i recon, would... More

We heard about this museum when we took the open-top bus tour around Barcelona, so decided to go after a bit of tapas. The museum is located near the Arc de Triomf (yes, spelled correctly) in Barcelona so any of the tour buses that pass by are the best way to get there. Even before entering the museum, the smell...

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.
