The best-smelling museum in town draws chocoholics of all ages to its collection of chocolate sculptures made by Barcelona's master pastissers for the Easter competition; these range from multicoloured models of Gaudí's Casa Batlló to characters from the latest Pixar film. Audio-visual shows and touch-screen computers help children make their way through what would otherwise be the rather dry history of the cocoa bean. Reserve in advance for weekend chocolate figurine-making courses and lessons in cooking desserts.
