  • We love chocolate, so we came by here after the Picasso Museum, which is nearby. The museum consists of exhibits that explain the history of chocolate and lots of chocolate statutes. Lots of kids were...  more »
  • 6 euros per person by entering a space of about 100 square meters with 4 explanations about the chocolate 4 machines and a few figures of chocolates, ugly, old and some broken. Not worth for nothing.

  • A few worthwhile exhibits but no more than an hour's worth. The entrance is actually at 2 Plaça de Pons I Clerch. The listed address is just a locked door.
  • Great place to learn about chocolate! Their museum has many sculptures made from chocolate that are very impressive pieces of art! (The downside is that the sculptures are (understandably) enclosed in plexiglass to prevent touching, but there is so much glare, taking photos is impossible.) The gift shop is outrageously expensive (on the order of $60/pound!), but the hot chocolate, while pricey, is amazing...dark, not very sweet, thick and delicious!
  • This museum is the worst museum I've visited in Barcelona. Its size is about 20x10 meters, and you can see everything inside in 5 minutes or less. I don't think it's worth the entrance fee.
  • I expected more from this museum, lots of free chocolate samples but I only saw some figurines made out of chocolate and some old tools used in chocolate factories. The price of the chocolate for sale is expensive.
  • Museum dedicated to Chocolate located in the heart of the Gothic Quarter.
