    Eventually the cost of admission is worth the experience. A mini history of chocolate with chocolate works really nice. The idea then to give a bar of chocolate with the barcode that acts as an entrance ticket is truly original. It can be done.

    The simple Museum, in terms of the very good cup chocolate 70% cocoa, but I made the mistake of asking a Swiss and the cream is spray, very sweet so it is best to take the chocolate just to appreciate the taste of the chocolate.

    We liked the tickets- you pay to go in- it was cheap-then they give you a little chocolate bar which you scan to allow you to enter and then you eat it! The models made of chocolate were superb and I ...  more »

  • What a treat! Chocolate heaven. Fantastic and worth the visit. The chocolate bar ticket is a great idea and yummy. Fantastic sculptures in chocolate. Well worth seeing. Just diet and walk a lot before and after.
  • Good range of exhibits. Also, the ticket itself is a bar of chocolate! All one floor so everything is nice and accessible.
  • The museum is included in the Barcelona card and it sounded unique, so we checked it out. It was pretty cool - learned the history of chocolate through some audio visual presentations and there are some really cool chocolate sculptures. My favorite part is that your admissions ticket is a chocolate bar! They also have a small cafe where you can try real Spanish hot chocolate and other snacks.
  • Worth the visit to learn about Spanish chocolate. The greatest part is that the tickets are a chocolate bar with a QR code to scan at the entrance. And it is a *good* bar of chocolate too!
  • Terrible service. I booked tickets online and tried to scan them to get in and got shouted at. She then asked if we had booked or had tickets. I told her we had booked and then I got shouted at again because we apparently had tickets, like the difference is supposed to be obvious. The museum is disappointingly small and not so impressive. Not worth a visit.

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.
