A world made of Chocolate sounds cool, right? Well happens to be, you have one in India. Tucked somewhere in Ooty is a museum that attracts people with not only the chocolatey things it homes but also the fragrance it spews. And for facts, the fragrance is of one of the multiple types of chocolates it homes.
Called the M&N Chocolate Museum, the place in the hill station city is India’s first Chocolate museum. The museum is dedicated to enlightening people about the health benefits of chocolate and how a chocolate bar is made and also different types of chocolates.
The museum was first opened in 2013 and now contains models describing how a bean is molded into chocolate. Moreover, you can also buy a DIY kit that steps by steps will guide you on how to make chocolates on your own.
Living up to its status of a chocolate museum, the museum also displays an array of tools that had been used throughout history to make chocolates. Herein you can explore the history of chocolate-making which dates back to 1500 BC when the Mayans used to make Cocoa drinks from Cocoa beans.
More Than Chocolates
The M&N museum also has over 100 handmade chocolate sculptures on display. Some of the sculptures are particularly molded for the children visiting the museum. The museum has been decorated with informative charts which don’t only make you drool but also give you a better understanding of chocolates.
Besides chocolates making, the museum also spares a decent knowledge about the trees harvested and pampered to make the chocolate.
Besides exploring, thankfully you can also buy chocolates from the place. Some of the chocolates sold here are unique to the region and you won’t find them anywhere else. From premium to vintage to classic chocolate you just have to say and the same will be presented to you.
