Great little museum! Cheap and worthy! Displays covered the history of chocolate's introduction to Europe! Also had some great chocolate sculptures and descriptions of the art of chocolate sculpting! Small kids will love it! The entry ticket is a chocolate bar!

We went there because friends recommended it to us. It's very small and in many ways it's ok - but clearly more impressive for the kids. Some of the models were impressive, but others were a bit old with files and other interesting insects on them.

This attraction is free with the Barcelona Card! You also get a chocolate bar, which is your ticket into the museum. The actual museum is small, but has a brief history of chocolate and many detailed chocolate sculptures on display. There is also a small cafe with coffee, hot chocolate and some pastries for sale. There is also a chocolate... More

The whole tour took no more than 15 minutes, without reading each item description. Nice chocolate "monuments" and ancient coco bean grinding and fining machines.

You can smell this museum two blocks away... it's delicious. Most of the history presentations were stuff my kids already know from school. What they really loved was the chocolate art: sculpture, paintings, diorama all made from chocolate. That's what kept it bearable for them. Not sure if it's worth 5 euros entry, but you should stop in the cafe... More

Although €6 isn't very expensive for a museum it wasn't really worth it. The place did smell incredible and the statues are clever but the walk round took ten minutes. Upon exciting into the Cafe I thought a chocolate milkshake slush would be great, nobody was waiting I said hola to the waitress who then rudely put her hand in... More

The museum is ok...the displays are beautiful but lets face it, it's all about chocolate. The mocha was amazing, my partners hot chocolate was intense. My criticism would be that the cafe is not large enough...chairs were a real struggle.

A museum showing the history of chocolate coupled with large chocolate sculptures. Only takes about 1 hour to go around. Some interesting sculptures, including local ones (Gaudi, etc) and a special exhibition of Star Wars themed sculptures. Only 5 euro entrance, so fine to do on a rainy day.

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.
