  • Tried to read everything in this place and still popped out the end door after 40 minutes. Not very inspiring chocolate to buy at the end, especially near Easter. Nice bar as a €6 ticket - pump overal...  more »

  • We can realy say it was nothing interesting to see here. Only chocolate figurines not such a good quality of details. Even the chocolate shops in Paris were much better then this "museum". At the entr...  more »

  • A great place to brighten your mood! It's like Cake Boss, but in chocolate. Sculptures made of chocolate. Everything smells like chocolate, and at the end you have the opportunity to buy some chocolate. My teen got chocolate lipstick. We asked for a cup of hot chocolate, and that is literally what they gave us. A cup of hot melted chocolate, like what we would pour over a molten chocolate lava cake with ice cream. It may have been my carb allotment for the week, but it was worth it!
  • Look, the entrance ticket is actually a bar of chocolate. And that's probably pretty much the high point of the museum. Don't get me wrong, the chocolate sculptures are lovely, astounding even. But the museum isn't interactive unless you've booked a lesson in the kitchen (and I'm not sure how one does that). And it's pretty light on facts. If you love chocolate, you'll probably enjoy the experience. But it's not my first recommendation in Barcelona.
  • So, so boring. I expected from a chocolate museum a level of interaction, tasting and chocolate making. Instead there are some impressive chocolate sculptures which look like they've been made 10+ years ago and then some old machines which were used to create certain types of chocolate. There is almost zero interaction. There are some terrible videos you can watch which tell you about the history of chocolate but my kids had zero interest whatseover. After the visit I ordered a hot chocolate, and they give you a mug of melted chocolate - disgusting!!! I would not recommend this place unless you work in the chocolate industry and care about its in depth history. As a tourist, I wouldn't bother.
  • Awesome history lesson on chocolate and some amazing chocolate sculptures! And the cafe was fantastic, so many bonbon choices it was almost overwhelming! Superb!
  • Nice displays, interesting models. A bit small for the price but the entrance ticket doubles as a chocolate bar wrapper (don't tear it off the chocolate bar before going through the turnstile). Audio guide didn't work for me, but it is through your phone so maybe it was my signal. Nice thick hot chocolate in the café.
