I thought that I will be amazed when I visit this museum. It is very small shop that has a section next to it which display the history of the chocolate and who it was shipped to Europe and when it was produced. The museum display some parts and machines that were used in the past. From my opinion, the... More

Its good to fill in an hour whilst waiting for your timeslot at the Basillica Sagrada Familia. Its 6euro entry, but your ticket is a chocolate bar! It was interesting, and if you time it for the exhibitions (we did not) then it could be really interesting. Overall, its just the history of chocolate and a whole heap of chocolate... More

My wife and two sons (7 and 3) visited here on 30/12 as part of a trip to Barcelona. Having planned a crammed itinerary encompassing the culture/heritage of the city, a visit of the chocolate museum - amongst other things e.g. Nou Camp - were put in our plans to make sure the children were entertained. Entrance fee was fine... More

The museum lacks a good show of how chocolate is actually made and they miss the opportunity to show some delicious catalan chocolate combos like almonds with chocolate, some nice chocolate turron etc. The chocolate figures are nice and interesting for children to see, but not enough to make the visitor feel gratified. There are tour and chocolate making demonstrations... More

The entrance fee is quite cheap. You get a non eatable chocolate(tastes very old) which is used as the ticket to enter there, and that's the most special thing. It is very nice to see all the chocolate sculptures(Messi, Park Guell, Movie Up) But nothing extraordinary

We thought the Chocolate Museum will be a must during our stay in Barcelona. As a chocolate lover, I couldn't let the chance pass me by. The ticket was cheap compared to other sights in Barcelona, but nothing interesting. They give you a chocolate which is used as the ticket to enter there, and that's the most special thing. I...

This was a fun way to learn about chocolate and the exhibits were beautiful. It is an easy tour and accessible to everyone. Your entrance ticket is a chocolate bar which you scan to go in then get to eat once you leave!! Yum!! The exhibits were so well done it's hard to imagine they are sculpted from chocolate.

It was a nice experince but nothing special. We visit it on a saturday and kids have no real chance to interact with production of chocolate.

I learned a lot about the history of chocolate. I did not expect dozens of large (many several feet tall) sculptures and figures made from chocolate. The admission ticket is also a chocolate bar, which is a nice treate.

The museum is well signposted and with a Barcelona Card entrance is free. Your ticket comes in the form of a bar of chocolate! The displays are full of the history of chocolate, how its made and even some models made from chocolate. The museum is quite small but there is a lot of detail in the displays. As you... 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.
