The space is really too small to tell the chocolate story effectively, and the museum has decided to fill most of the galleries with wacky chocolate sculptures (of Messi, of Don Quixote, of the Virgin of Montserrat) instead of focusing on teaching kids and their parents about the relationship between Barcelona and chocolate, or the story of how it’s made. The city claims to have been the entry port of chocolate into Europe, based on the arrival of a 1520 shipment of cacao from Mexico. A Cistercian monk in the New World sent it to the Monasterio de Piedra in Aragón, complete with a recipe for a chocolate drink. This little museum is really designed to make you crave chocolate; even your ticket is a chocolate bar.
