Food is not only for direct consumption, but also to be admired and even to study the history and culture of peoples, states and cities.
Therefore, today our review concerns museums of delicacies around the world.
Yes, I am aware that food spoils very quickly, so I will immediately answer the question about the safety of the exhibits. Most of them have to be changed or sold regularly. So running such an establishment is expensive.
Where do you think such a place could be? In Switzerland? I'm not sure about this. But on the other hand, I know for sure that one of these “tasty” museums is located in Brussels, the second is in Barcelona, where a model of the city was made from chocolate in miniature. And the third one is located in Lviv, Ukraine.
Chocolate and museums
I think this is not a complete list, these sweets are too loved in the world. But in all these establishments, visitors will be told about the history of the emergence, distribution and modification of this delicacy, from the Aztec era to the present day.
Jamon Museum in Madrid
Jamon Museum in Madrid
It's more of a shop with a restaurant than a museum, but you can see a lot of interesting things there. Most of all, the assortment, that is, the exposition, is impressive – the variety of ham makes vegetarians panic. What varieties are not there!
There are affordable cheap products, and even the famous elite jamon from black piglets, which were fed exclusively on acorns. The best thing about this museum is affordable prices, because in our area such pork is considered a delicacy.
He is also not alone. The first institution is located, of course, in Switzerland – this is the Gruyère Cheese House. And the second “shrine” is located in Quebec, Canada. This is the Cheese Factory of the Bergeron family.
Cheese House Gruyères
In Switzerland, visitors will be shown the cheese-making process in full cycle during the production process – after all, it is also a factory in combination. Then they will be taken to the showroom and told about the history of this product. You can touch, smell and taste everything around.

The Canadian Bergeron family has gone even further. Since this business is the work of their whole life, a whole family history, and more than one generation, the owners, in addition to the sightseeing tour, show visitors photographs, films and documents that testify to the role of this family in the cheese-making process.
< p>Still, it's not bad that often a dish characterizes a country even more than flags, anthems, monuments and leaders of the nation put together.
