It was the Maya who discovered the culinary uses of the cacao bean, which later became a form of currency for the Aztec empire. These are a few of the things you’ll learn at this kid-friendly expo, the Antigua branch of a hemisphere-wide project. The museum also offers chocolate-making workshops and cacao plantation tours.

A branch of the museum, on 5a Av Norte, a block north of Parque Central, features an attractive courtyard where you can whip up and enjoy your own Maya chocolate.
