Past Exhibitions :: Chocolate: The Exhibition

Sunday, September 17, 2006 - Sunday, January 7, 2007
Exhibition Hall

Box of Candy
A unique tree in a lush tropical environment.  A seed so precious it was used as money.  A spicy drink and a sweet snack.  Chocolate is all this…and much more.  Explore the relationship between human culture and this rainforest treasure in Chocolate, an exhibition from Chicago’s Field Museum. 

Chocolate will immerse you in a sweet experience, engage all of your senses, and reveal facets of chocolate you’ve never 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.
