This is the 50th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory so the museum teamed up with the Dahl foundation to do an interactive exhibit both on the book and the history of chocolate.
There is an inventing room downstairs for the little ones modeled after the sweets in the book.
There are also some delicious samples and chocolates for sale.
The back room tells of the beginning of chocolate in Mexico. There is some hot chocolate to taste as well, made in the traditional way with no sugar and some spice.
The exhibit also talks about the social issues surrounding the chocolate industry.
The exhibit is a little text heavy, but even kids should learn something about chocolate. It’s a great place to spend a few hours, learn something, and try a few samples of chocolate.
The World of Chocolate exhibit is on display until January 31, 2015. More information can be found here.
