Chocalate factory new attraction in Amsterdam

A new attraction is scheduled to open in Amsterdam in 2007: a chocolate factory.

The attraction will be a mix of a museum and a theme park for children. The attraction is based on a children's book called 'Sjakie en de Chocaladefabriek', and will be located in a monumental building next to the Central Station of Amsterdam.

In the building children will, for example, be able to dress up as a chocolate bean, and - after treatment in the factory - reappear as a bonbon.
Also, there will be a museum of chocolate-related article.

Amsterdam is a suitable place for this attraction, as it is still the largest cocoa harbour in the world.

The website (as yet only in Dutch) can be found here.
