Chocolate is one of the most popular foods in the world, and, an exhibit at the Field Museum in November celebrates the delicious phenomenon. If you’re visiting our BEST WESTERN Chicago Midway hotel anytime from November until the New Year we definitely recommend stopping by the exhibit for a tasty and fun time for the whole family.
The museum, which is located just 20 minutes away from our Chicago Midway hotel, walks visitors through several different aspects of chocolate’s history including its origins and how it came to America as well as the different types of chocolate available today. The exhibit which is open from 9:00am – 5:00 pm daily, is suitable for children and adults and features some fun hands-on activities in addition to the factual side of the exhibit including:
- The chocolate challenge: Think you’re a chocolate connoisseur? Test your knowledge with this fun challenge.
- Downloadable kid-friendly chocolate recipes, facts, crossword puzzles and other educational activities.
- Interactive online games like the, “make your own chocolate” interactive manufacturing challenge.
You can buy individual tickets for the event through the Field Museum’s website and if you’re thinking of visiting the exhibit with a group of 10 or more, they have special field museum group discount rates which can make you’re day a little more affordable regardless of how many friends and family you bring with you!
