Cranbrook – Chocolate: The Exhibition
October 3 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
September 23, 2017 – January 7, 2018
A unique tree in a lush tropical environment. A seed so precious it was used as money. A spicy drink and a sweet snack. A heavenly craving and a sublime pleasure. Chocolate is all this…and much more. Explore the relationship between human culture and this rainforest treasure in Chocolate.
Chocolate will immerse you in a sweet experience, engage all your senses, and reveal facets of chocolate you may never have thought about before. You’ll explore the plant, the products, the history, and the culture of chocolate through the lenses of botany and ecology, anthropology and economics, conservation and popular culture. And if all that sets your mouth to watering, you can purchase a chocolate treat in the Science Shop to satisfy your cravings.
