From the tropical rainforest of ancient Maya, 16th century Europe, the Industrial Revolution, to the present day - the world has had a long love affair with chocolate. Throughout history, chocolate has been used in royal and religious ceremonies, as currency, a drink for the wealthy, a sweet treat for the masses, and a global commodity.

Chocolate: The Exhibition is an eye opening and mouth watering experience that will be sure to engage the senses and reveal aspects of this sumptuous sweet that you've never thought about before.

Join us for the Memorial Day Weekend Celebration featuring Chocolate: The Exhibition  at Natural History Museum of Utah! We will be celebrating with:

  • Chocolate tastings in the special exhibits gallery
  • Hands-on activites for all ages—cocoa grinding and more!
  • Chocolate experts on hand sharing their knowledge of the plant, the products, and the culture of chocolate. 

*Activites begin at 12pm and end at 4 pm.  Chocolate Tasting Program space is limited. Choclate Tastings will sell out, so please plan your visit accordingly.
