Exploring the Museum

Immeditaley upon entering the Chocolate Museum of Barcelona, visitors will be delighted when they purchase their entrance tickets and realize that these are made out of chocolate and that they can eat them while visiting the Museum.

The Museu de la Xocolata reflects how chocolate is produced, from the cocoa tree plantations, to the removal of the beans, to the roasting, hulling and crushing of the beans until it is made into chocolate as we know it. The Museum’s mission also includes information on the history of this product and how the Mayan Indians, Aztecs and Toltecs cultivated cocoa trees.

The Museum also includes numerous chocolate sculptures designed by some of Catalonia’s best pastry chefs.
