  • The place is a temptation even to those who are not xocolatras! Shows the evolution and has an arts exhibition in xocolata, amazing. The service is terrible and the attendants are more to talk about than to you. Loud and occupy the balcony on the side that should be for customers to drink tea and chat. Terrible! Even so, there is over the visit, be sure to take some hot chocolate. Is divine!!!!! Of the gods!

  • Small museum; I was hoping it was more focused on how to make the chocolate from seed to pasticcerà processing. On the other hand is the colleIone of statues of chocolate of the best artists of the genre. My 4 year old enjoyed; the ticket to eat is sympathetic and

  • 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.
