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...

You walk in to a lovely smell of chocolate! Your entrance ticket is a bar of chocolate which the kids loved. You get to read about the history of chocolate, see old chocolate making machines and numerous chocolate sculptures. It was a shame you do not see the chocolate being made. At the end of your tour you can purchase... More

A nice little museum. Expect to spend about 45 minutes. Entry was pretty cheap and included a bar of chocolate. The have some great chocolate carvings and also go into the history of chocolate from earliest times up until a couple of decades ago. A little out of the way, but fun for the kids.

If you are curious about the history of chocolate and its history, this museum is a interesting place to go. The entry ticket you buy is a chocolate bar. You hear how chocolate is made, how it was a part of European culture, and get to see some amazing sculptures made of chocolate. It is not a first choice among... More

The museum was more concentrated on the history of chocolate and displaying different objects made of chocolate. Personally, I would have wanted to learn more about the details and phases of chocolate making. Still, a fun visit.

Personally I think it is too small to be called chocolate, but it has some cool stuff. It talks about history of chocolate, how chocolate was used in the past, and so on. There are some cool statues made out of chocolates too. The ticket was chocolate, which I thought was bright. If you love chocolate, then this place is... More

Its air conditioned and the chocolate drink is amazing. Worth it if you are in the area and free with the Barcelona card.

I am a chocolate lover and could not pass up an opportunity to visit a museum dedicated to my favorite guilty pleasure. Upon entering the museum and paying my 5€ entrance fee I was given a delicious dark chocolate bar ticket. As I wandered the exhibits eating my candy I was soon to discover that the endorphins produced from my... More

I think it was cool to see so many different chocolate designs and characters made entirely out of chocolate. There is some history or chocolate involved and you get a free piece of chocolate!

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.
