Outstanding visual presentation on Iberian Ham and its importance to the Spanish culture and lifestyle. We included the ham tasting with our wonderful and knowledgable tour guide Ana. Highly advise anyone while in Barcelona and on the Ramblas to take this one hour experience to understand and appreciate Spanish culture even more!

If your at all any kind of foodie, this is a once in a lifetime MUST DO!! You start with the basics, film, visual aid walk through. Then you move onto the tasting. Five different varieties of Iberian Ham, an explaination of each and a couple glasses of Cava to go with. My son gave this to me as a Christmas, and it was perfect. Not to mention, you might even make some new friends while there.

Definitely a must do when you're in Barcelona. Very informative and the iberian ham is yummy! Right in the center of Las Ramblas and right across the Mercat. So there's a lot to see outside and around the museum.
