    Visit: Museu de la Xocolata, C/ Comerc, 36, 08003 Barcelona Spain

    The Chocolate Museum is a dynamic facility promoted by the Barcelona Confectionery Guild and located in the former Sant Agustí monastery. It provides a journey through the origins of chocolate, its arrival in Europe and its spread as an element between myth and reality, its medicinal properties and nutritional value, relating tradition with the future and forming part of our collective imagination.

 The Chocolate Museum is located in a historic building that already had a relationship with chocolate: in the 18th century the Bourbon army was a fanatical consumer of chocolate and, according to the ordinances, chocolate was present on the menus of the 18th-century military academies: “For breakfast each cadet and company officer shall be given one and a half ounces of chocolate with a quarter of a pound of bread...”. When the troops were in barracks, acting as garrison, chocolate was also commonly eaten. The halberdier corps, the monarch’s personal bodyguard, was enviously known as the “chocolateros”, because, as they were a pampered, elite corps, they consumed a great deal of chocolate.

 Since the age of discovery in the 15th century, chocolate has played a role in the economic and social fabric of Barcelona. Along these lines, Barcelona port acted as a starting point for the sale and distribution of the product all over Europe.

 In addition, the first workshop that transformed drinking chocolate into a solid product is recognised to have existed in the city at the end of the 19th century.

    We were hoping it would be better than some reviewed warned, but we truly did not have a good experience. 12€ for two people, not a terrible price. However, 2/3 video segment did not work. When we talked to the lady about it, she just told us you needed to press the button

    There is a lot of info and displays about the history of chocolate, how it is made and where it came from. But, the most interesting part to me was the many sculptures they had made of chocolate. You get a unique admission ticket.

    Entry ticket is a fun touch, where our of English flyers, but not a big loss. Make sure to bring earphones because you can actually listen to an online audio guide (didn't have earphones on me so no idea about the quality). Lots of sculptures, some information, some screens and

    I expected more interactive opportunities and possibly more chocolate! The entrance using a small chocolate bar was promising but after that there was quite a bit of reading about cocoa and history of chocolate. I didn’t find it hugely memorable

    Small museum of arts created in chocolate. It’s perhaps more an exhibition than a museum because most is spent on displays of chocolate sculptures than actuality telling the story of chocolate. Anyway the kids loved it and it was a nice break away from the sun. Seems you can
