7. Porto: Entry Ticket The Chocolate Story Museum at WOW
Until it melts in the mouth and gives comfort to the soul, chocolate follows long established processes. It all starts as a fragile flower on a tree trunk in a remote part of the world. It follows a method created 5,000 years ago, which crossed different civilizations and continents, continuing to be a complex method even today.
The Chocolate Story explains what chocolate is, where it comes from, and how it is made. From cacao plantations across the cacao belt, to modern chocolate manufacturing processes, everything will be demonstrated step by step.
The journey starts with the origins of cacao, from among the oldest civilizations in Central America where cacao holds a sacred role. Then visitors get to follow the path of cacao from America to Europe, moving from liquid cacao to the chocolate we know and love today.
Visitors to The Chocolate Story, have the unique opportunity to understand all components of chocolate. The particulars of the cacao fruit and plant, the different cacao varieties and specifications depending on where they come from, and how chocolate differs within all these variables.
The Chocolate Story has a real chocolate factory that produces our amazing and award winning Vinte Vinte. All visitors will be able to watch, in real time, the processes of the transformation of cacao into chocolate. The visit does not end without the opportunity to taste one of the chocolates produced within the museum.
This is an enriching experience, perfect for all ages, especially families and young children. The Chocolate Story will also hold workshops and themed birthday parties that combines learning and fun, all inside the museum. As well as visiting the best chocolate shop in the city.
