Details

Start your chocolate journey from the museum’s Period Rooms to discover how the Georgians, Victorians and the Jacobeans satisfied their sweet tooth.
Then follow the steps to find a spectacular whizzing and fizzing sweet making machine in the Toy Gallery. Follow your nose to find out what’s cooking in our working Chocolate Factory where you can explore what it was like to work in York’s famous factories. At special times of year you can also enjoy tasting sessions and expert workshops.
Next, take to our world-famous Victorian cobbled street to find a traditional scrumptious sweet shop brimming with chocolates and sweets from days gone by. Discover the worldwide household favourites that were first created right here in York.
Then it’s the swinging Sixties gallery with its new shop displaying some of the most iconic chocolate brands to come from York.
See original adverts, packaging and more alongside the stories of those who took York’s life-long love of confectionary to the world in this family-friendly, interactive tour through York’s history of chocolate and sweets
