Saturday Chocolate Bar at The Langham, Boston

Chocolate: The Exhibition
On January 29, the Museum of Science unveiled its newest exhibition, Chocolate, exploring every aspect of “the world’s perfect food," so described by nutrition researcher Michael Levin. The 5,000-square-foot exhibit examines chocolate’s unique place in history, ecology and popular culture. It reveals where chocolate is grown and how it’s made, from the most luxurious confections to the mass-produced treats doled out on Halloween. The interactive exhibit delves into chocolate’s place in ancient and contemporary societies, its significant economic impact and its starring role in the culinary arts.
Visitors will indulge in more than 200 objects and highly detailed replicas including pre-Columbian ceramics, European silver and porcelain servers, nineteenth and twentieth-century advertising, and botanical representations. These, along with immersive, interactive components and media, reveal the rich history of chocolate around the world. Chocolate and its national tour were developed by The Field Museum, Chicago. This exhibition was supported, in part, by the National Science Foundation. The exhibit will be open through May 7, 2017.
Package rates are nightly and start at $289 based on double occupancy. Stays must include a Friday night. For reservations and more information, please visit http://langhamhotels.com/Boston or call 617.451.1900.
