About World of Chocolate Museum & Cafe
Imagine the Great Wall of China made out of chocolate. A six-and-a-half-foot chocolate Statue of Liberty. Or a Dutch windmill with cocoa blades. These are the magical objects found in a children's movie—and at the World of Chocolate Museum & Cafe. Indeed, the museum is the kind of place that makes guests want to burst into a mysteriously choreographed group song as they wander amid chocolate sculptures and lore. Visitors explore the confection's rainforest beginnings, and trace its early journeys from Central and South America to the high courts of 16th century Europe and its current place on sweet-lovers' pedestals.
After gaining a bit of historical knowledge, the structures in the sculpture hall become even more impressive—25 intricately carved replicas of worldwide monuments that somehow have avoided being eaten. Also lending a bit of perspective is the machinery room, which reveals the modern and historical mechanics used to process the sweet treat and create the bonbons and soul-warming drinks found in the cafe, where customers can enjoy complimentary WiFi access.
