  • Chocolate the pleasure it brings, and better yet the art work they put into this museum these was serious Business, a must see, you will not believe your eyes in what they did with chocolate, also the...  more »
  • Using a purchased Pass for 3 days, at 45 euros, we had access to a lot of free Museum. Fortunately also for the latter whose visit we took 40 minutes. A small chocolate bar offered as a welcome (not extraordinary) and then start, a few table to explain the origin of cocoa, chocolate, white or black mounted parts, on football, on Walt Disney, a few machines, and the visit is over. Out we did not even have the urge to take a hot chocolate, so the decor is unremarkable and not binding. Half disappointed because we had not paid 6 euros for this visit.

  • Well, I like eating chocolate. But I am not much interested in seeing various superheros made out of chocolate. The place was nice, but frankly very expensive. It may be a 5-star place for someone who has more academic interest in Chocolate History.
  • The best smeeling museum ever. The smell of hot chocolate is all over the place. Nice exhibition of tools for processing cocoa, as well as types of cocoa fruit and seeds. Great place for kids
  • A fun little museum for the dedicated chocolate lover. Had a great time with amazing chocolate-art and history. Perfect to finish the whole tour with a pice of tasty chocolate. A really nice place.
  • Fun little museum a bit hidden near the Picasso museum. It gives some facts about chocolate itself and more impressive is that they show some sculptures that are completely made out of chocolate. A fun little detail they added: your entrance ticket is actually a small bar of chocolate that you can eat while looking around. I would say go to the Picasso museum, have some lunch afterwards and for desert, go to this museum. It's only 6 euros.
  • Fun stop for globe trotting chocolate enthusiasts! Your ticket is itself a bar of chocolate and the displays are great. It's a small location but a nice venue. When we went they had a special Star Wars display up.

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
