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

My son and I had a visit to this nice museum. It is a short visit and you can read and hear about the history of chocolate. The highlight are the great beautiful statues made of chocolate. Gives you an apatite

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

Kids love the chocolate sculptures but it was an interesting place and air conditioned. It had a nice café where you can have very chocolaty milk and a super hot chocolate drink. Nice pit stop not far from the mania of the Picasso Museum.

Xocolata sculptures for kids and not only, interesting stories about chocolatiers. The hot chocolate taste depends on the day you are visiting the cafe. First time was the best I ever tasted, second time was "diluted"

If you go to the Picasso, this is right down the road. It is unique for all ages. The chocolate made figures are outstanding. Also a lot of info on the history of cocoa and chocolate. The shop merch not so great though. Be careful when buying chocolate from it's store section.

The museum mostly tells you about the origins and history of chocolate via short tabloes. Large statues made of chocolate are the main attraction (they are cute). It's definitely not a must-see, but a nice stop-over away from the crowds of Barri Gothic. We tried the chocolate at the gift shop, it was very good (although we've had better), and... More

The museum is a bit disappointing. The best thing inside are the sculptures made out of chocolate. Also inside is a little history of chocolate and how it is made. Give no more than 30 mins unless you want to sit and have coffee / chocolate from the shop

We stopped here largely to compensate our kids for having patiently, and generally with positive engagement, attended the Picasso Museum right around the corner. It turned out to be a fun stop! The chocolate sculptures are impressive, the history of chocolate is interesting, and the chocolate itself (your ticket is a chocolate bar, which of course reminded us of Willie... 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.
