Attention all candy lovers! Sugar Factory is making all of your candy-filled dreams come true with the announcement that they will be opening a candy museum set to rival your Willy Wonka fueled fantasies! It was recently announced that this summer, Sugar Factory will open the first Museum of Candy in New York City (squeals internally).
Sugar Factory’s 30,000-square-foot museum is honestly all set to be a dream come true! Sugar Factory founder Charissa Davidovici explained the idea was born after she and her team noticed that guests flocked to take pictures in front of the life-sized Candy Dot wall inside Sugar Factory locations.
The Museum of Candy will feature 15 experiential rooms, each with its own candy theme. There will also be a dessert market place with over 20 vendors, a full-service restaurant, and an outdoor Sugar Factory café. Visitors will be invited to chow down on sweets, pose in front of the world’s largest gummy bear, learn about the history of candy, and watch various treats being made.
While the Museum of Ice Cream made news a couple of months ago, the Museum of Candy is set to be a permanent fixture (happy dance) so, even if you can’t make it to the Big Apple now, chances are, your candy-filled dreams aren’t lost forever!
