Jacques Torres Is Opening a Chocolate Museum

Jacques Torres Is Opening a Chocolate Museum


All of your chocolate dreams and Willy Wonka aspirations are sure to come true at this new museum.

Jacques Torres, renowned New York City chocolatier, will be opening a museum to become a permanent fixture in his Soho-Hudson store called Choco-Story New York, The Chocolate Museum and Experience with Jacques Torres, according to Eater.

There are no confirmed details on what the museum will offer, but this will be the first permanent museum dedicated to sweets in New York City. The only comparable concept was a pop-up Museum of Ice Cream in the Meatpacking District last summer.

We do hope that visitors will be able to make their own chocolate creations at this museum, just like these chocolate-making classes in New York City. The museum opening also comes at an opportune time, as the beloved Roald Dahl story Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will be coming to Broadway at the end of the month at Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.

For more chocolate-related fun, see why it is worth visiting Hersheypark in Hershey, PA—home to the iconic amusement park and chocolate museum focused around founder Milton Hershey.



Jacques Torres opened his first outpost in DUMBO in 2000 and has locations on the Upper West Side, Rockefeller Center, Midtown East, Noho-Lafayette, and Grand Central Station. He is known for making his own chocolate, starting from cocoa beans and using preservative- and artificial-free ingredients. Along with chocolate, you can buy cookies, caramels, bark and brittle, baking chocolate discs, and their signature hot chocolate in the retail stores.
