The museum is more interesting than I thought it would be. There are many impressive chocolate sculptures, in addition to information about how chocolate is made. What made the stop worth it was the hot chocolate in the café. So dark and thick. I’ll never forget it. It’s better than the famous Angelina’s in Paris.

1 hall with very little to see and no interactive displays or special elements. Totally not worth the price. Might be nicer with family activities, but those need to be reserved at least one week in advance!!

This is a very nice place to visit on a rainy day (and there are not may of them), at least this is what we did. You get a chocolate as the ticket and you get to explore the history of this precious commodity. There's also a very nice cafeteria, full of all sorts of chocolate assortments.

There are some art works made out of chocolate at the museum, but unfortunately there is no demonstration of how to make chocolate and no chocolates tastings- if you want to try, you need to buy.

A good concept where the wrapper of the ticket is swiped to access the museum. One would typically expect the history of the cocoa bean and making of chocolate.but here was a beautiful display of chocolate figures made by chocolatiers in a competition. The museum authorities have overlooked the lighting of this place. One can neither see the display well... More

The lady selling ticket is rude. The exhibit is poorly maintained. I don't seem to learn anything in the tour. There are models made of chocolate but I don't find them particularly appealing. On the website there are different activities or tours and it said to ask the museum about that. I did ask and the lady told me that... More

I popped in here while I was waiting for my time slot at the Picasso Museum, which is near by. The small museum offered displays on the history of chocolate (both the technical aspects of processing it and the cultural significance it acquired in South American and European history). But not all of the videos were working properly, and the... More

A very small museum that can be completed in about an hour or two. The entrance ticket is a chocolate bar with the flag of your country of origin. There are some small exhibits describing the history of chocolate, the process of making chocolate, and customs surrounding chocolate in the Catalonia region and other places in the world. The most... 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.
