Educational excuse to gorge on chocolate
This discreet exhibition is one for the true Haigh's fans - and any chocolate lover who happens to pass through the area. Located on the top floor of the Queen Victoria Building under the central dome, it comprises pieces of Haigh's memorabilia, such as vintage packaging, cocoa beans, one or two enticing displays of boxed chocolate, and a handful of billboards outlining the Haigh's story and philosophy underlying their chocolate creations. There is also a short video to watch if you have the time.
My recommendation is to arm yourself with some bars of Haigh's chocolate from their store on the ground floor, and to munch on these while you peruse the exhibition. I didn't think to, and I couldn't concentrate on what I was looking at because all I wanted to do was get some chocolate to eat.
If you visit the exhibition, also make sure to enter their guess the number of speckles competition - you could win a $100 chocolate hamper.
