HUGE waste of time. Nothing to see except some chocolate sculptures. The only thing worth seeing is the chocolate counter which is not part of the museum so is free. Even still, would rather find a chocolate store nearby to visit and purchase gourmet chocolate.

Not recommended. The highlight is being given a small bar of chocolate. Sterile, non-interactive displays. Needs a major rethink!!

We were there with the kids hoping to have a nice afternoon, but the place was smaller than I expected. We finished the tour in 15 minutes only. There are some cute chocolate sculptures to see and some machines used in the making process of...More

The exhibition part of the museum is not especially impressive. Small museum for the entry price and the chocolate-bar “ticket” seems a fun idea from somewhere, but tasted like cheap cooking chocolate from a budget supermarket so even my kids threw them in the garbage....More

The museum is small, but has a lot of information about the history of chocolate. Unfortunately, most of it is in text, so the younger children are not engaged by it. There are a lot of chocolate sculptures, but you can only appreciate so many....More

Now, had a small window in Barcelona and so we thought why not try the Chocolate Museum. What an unexpected delight. Chocolate is all around and you think you know it but its history is fascinating. From the monks to the French ladies and their...More

It’s seems appropriate that this museum is on the city that made chicken collate so famous. The story of the development is laid out for all to see here and it is a good one. Very good layout and enjoyable was to spend an hour....More

I was a little unimpressed with this museum. I recommend only if you absolutely have nothing else to do. Although the sculptures are neat, there is not much else to do or see. I expected to see a live view of how chocolate is made...More

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 neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
