There’s no golden ticket needed for this chocolate tour.

In time for Valentine’s Day, “Chocolate: The Exhibition” opened last week at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science (DMNS). Entry is free with general admission.

The show traces the history of chocolate from its origins in the Mayan Empire to contemporary chocolatiers.

“This exhibit is perfectly bookended by Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day,” said Chip Colwell, the museum’s curator for the exhibition. “We do a lot of market research. We think we know our audience and we know what matches our mission.”

To complement the show, DMNS is hosting a series of talks and tastings, teaching visitors how to prime their palates for chocolate. It’s also selling chocolates made by the DMNS in-house chef in its gift shop, a museum first.

Developed by The Field Museum in Chicago, the exhibit’s Denver run is sponsored by Colorado-based candymaker Enstrom Toffee and Confectionary. It runs through May 8.
