This summer, Sugar Factory will open the Museum of Candy in New York City. The new museum located in a converted church will showcase the evolution of the candy industry. Among the other features will be 15 “experiential rooms” based on candy, DIY candy stations, a restaurant and a café, a dessert marketplace, and “the largest gummy bears on Earth.”
The Museum of Candy, which has been dubbed a real-life Candy Land, will charge $15 to $25 for admission. It is the first of three candy museums planned, with a second to launch in Los Angeles in 2019 and a third still to be announced.
“The idea to create a Museum of Candy originated from the imagination of my inquisitive children and my own personal dreams about a magical candy land,” says Sugar Factory founder Charissa Davidovici. “We also drew inspiration from all of our guests at Sugar Factory taking pictures at our life-size Candy Dot wall and with our over-the-top food and drinks. New York City is the perfect location to open our first museum, it’s the epicenter of entertainment—we can’t wait to share this concept worldwide.”
