Chocolate: The Exhibition
For thousands of years, humans have been fascinated with the delicious phenomenon that we call 'chocolate.' Today, most of us know it as a candy or a sweet dessert. But this wasn't always so. Test your chocolate knowledge and discover the complete story behind the tasty treat we crave in our newest temporary exhibition, Chocolate.
Indulge in more than 200 objects and highly detailed replicas including pre-Columbian ceramics, European silver and porcelain servers, nineteenth and twentieth-century advertising, and botanical representations. These, along with immersive, interactive components and media, reveal the rich history of chocolate around the world.
Uncover facets of this sumptuous sweet that you've never thought about before! In this bilingual exhibition, explore the plant, the products, and the culture of chocolate through the lenses of science, history, and popular culture.
Chocolate and its national tour were developed by The Field Museum, Chicago. This exhibition was supported, in part, by the National Science Foundation.
