Tickets issued were chocolate bars. Not so interesting museum; go if you have nothing better to do. Just shows you cacao fruit and origins. Some old advertisement posters. Chocolate sculptures. Audio visual rooms. It was just one big room. Cafe was nice though.

Enjoyed this wonderful and historic display regarding the origins of chocolate. The "ticket" was a huge hit. Highly recommend!

My husband and I opted for a private Chocolate and Wine experience. We were first given a guided tour of the museum, which was a fantastic way to see the highlights. We learned about the history of chocolate and the chocolate-making process, as well as seeing some amazing chocolate models. Then our guide Anna took us to the workshop where... More

We paid this a visit on our exchange trip. We could see lots of fancy workshops going on through the floor to ceiling windows. We did a small workshop with the kids which they enjoyed (the chocolate was quite bitter compared to the cadbury's that they are used to, but they still had fun.) A welcome break from the history...

On the recommendation of a friend, we took our family here during our pre-cruise stay in Barcelona. The smell of chocolate draws you in time you enter the building. We enjoyed looking at all of the chocolate sculptures and learning about the history of chocolate. This is a must see!

While taking our taxi to the Picasso museum, I noticed this out of the corner of my eye. My wife *loves* chocolate and I thought it might be a fun little way to kill some time. The museum itself basically explains the history of chocolate, and chocolate making. It features a few displays, as well as a number of installations... More

It will cost around €5/6 per person. It is a very small museum/ you won't spend more than 45 minutes in there but you will learn a lot about chocolate. The fun thing is that your entrance ticket is a chocolate bar! Great with kids- when they are getting fed up with serious museums or when it is raining- it... 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.
