On the heels of the very popular pop-up Museum of Ice Cream, a chocolate museum has arrived in Lower Manhattan. This new destination in SoHo (350 Hudson St.) offers chocolate aficionados an in-depth history of cacao, and all its accoutrements, including early artifacts used for drinking. And it won't be just a tease of the sweet treat, visitors will get to indulge themselves in the making and sampling of chocolate varieties.

Renowned chocolatier Jacques Torres teamed up with Eddy Van Belle to curate rich exhibitions for the "Choco-Story New York: The Chocolate Museum and Experience." The museum website states that "visitors will discover the story of chocolate and its journey from bean to bar through original artifacts, nine premium tastings, kids’ corner and a bon bon making class, offering an educational – and delicious - hands-on experience for families, children, and chocolate lovers."

A professional chocolatier will host tastings and lead chocolate making classes.
