Fascinating cultural history
Learn more about the development of chocolate into a luxury treat for everyone in our cultural history section. In the 19th and 20th centuries, chocolate slowly became more affordable as a result of industrialization and colonization. Nevertheless, cocoa and chocolates remained a gift for special occasions.
Whether on the radio or television, chocolate is omnipresent. Even in the past, the chocolate market spared no effort to impress us with beautiful packaging, enamel signs or posters. You can admire a wide variety of advertising materials, which were used especially at the turn of the century until the 1950s, in our exhibition.
