Are you coming to Barcelona with a family and you are worried about how to entertain the young ones while you are here? Barcelona has a lot on offer to entertain people of all ages, so after you have dragged the kids to see some of Barcelona´s most famous buildings, such as The Sagrada Familia or the Casa Batlló, you can treat them to one of these workshops or tours that are guaranteed to appeal to a younger audience – who doesn’t love chocolate?!
The Chocolate Museum (Museo de la Xocolata in Catalan) is a truly spectacular experience. They offer many different workshops and activites that are each aimed at different age groups from babies right the way up to adults. For example, there is a workshop for painting with (and eating!) chocolate for the youngsters and then there are guided tours of the museum as well as brandy testing with chocolate for adults. It is really a fantastic day out that will be enjoyed by the whole family. Take a look at the website here to view the website of the Museo de la Xocolata and see different workshops and tours that are available – there are 13 in total!
Another place that has a lot to offer for children is La Pedrera. There are many different workshops that are very interactive and aim to teach the children about the architecture and the history of the building, but in a fun way that often involves painting and building sculptures. The price of most of the workshops is only €8.50 so it´s quite reasonable and the different workshops have different durations and are at different times of the day, so there will almost definitely be something that suits your needs.

Poble Espanyol is another place that is very child friendly. They have different workshops and activities on offer that are enjoyable for people of all ages. Amongst others these include: glass painting, bread making and also an agricultural and ecological workshop that teaches how to prepare a seedbed, make compost and plant a lettuce. The activites are all relatively cheap and very well thought of so it is very enjoyable. Visit the website for Poble Espanyol for more information and for times.
