Chocolate Museum (Museu de la Xocolata) Tours

This delicious museum tells the story of chocolate across Europe, including its history, trade, manufacturing, and various uses. It traces the origins back to South America, when cacao beans were first brought to Europe by Spanish conquistadores. Since the 15th century chocolate played an important role in Barcelona’s economy, with the import and export through its port. Historically the city soldiers were even given pieces of chocolate with bread for breakfast.

It is one of the city’s smaller museums, but is in the top ten in terms of visitors. Fun chocolate experiences, from sculpting or painting with chocolate, are on display. Many of the sculptures are famous Barcelona landmarks made of chocolate. Those who visit do indeed receive a piece of chocolate upon entering, but the smell of chocolate permeates long before then. Tastings are very much part of the experience, so be sure to come hungry.

Practical Info

The Chocolate Museum is open daily at Carrer de Comerc 36, from Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 7 pm and from 10 am to 3 pm on Sundays, with extended hours in the summer. The closest metro stop is Arc de Triomf. Admission is 5 euro.
