    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 had plenty of time during our stay in Barcelona, my husband wanted to visit camp Nou and the kids weren’t bothered so thought I’d try here whilst he went to there . Honestly a complete waste of money, a few ‘chocolate’ sculptures mainly of Asterix that really looked way past

    Not in the league of other museums, but geared to a curious client this unique experience is worth taking a few minutes to learn about the process of sourcing beans and making chocolate. There are some interesting antique processing machines on display. I found it informative

    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

    Not a great museum, but the worst online shop EVER!
    Some of the exhibits are fiendishly clever, many are past their sell by date and bug infested.
