Since we’re members, I took my kids to the San Diego Natural History Museum this past weekend and we got a chance to visit their new exhibit on chocolate. Check out the entrance of the chocolate exhibit, it looks great! I almost felt like I’d won Willy Wonka’s golden ticket and was about to enter the chocolate factory.
And the inside of the exhibit is just as great as the entrance. We learned a lot, played a lot, watched a lot and read a lot about chocolate. For a chocolate fan like me, it was a real treat. A few weeks ago, we saw an episode of The Magic School Bus where the class visits a rainforest and learns about the role of midge flies. Guess what, it’s the first thing we learned about when we entered the exhibit. No midges, no chocolate!
Of course, you can’t visit an exhibit about chocolate without learning more about the various types and brands of chocolate today. Throughout the exhibit you can spot blown-up versions of your favorite chocolate candy and chocolate bar wrappings on the walls. I was pleasantly surprised to see my favorite cow there: the purple Milka cow!
If this exhibit comes in your town, I highly recommend it. It was a lot of fun for all ages. The only thing missing? The faint smell of chocolate…
