Discover why Chicago is known as “America’s candy capital” as the traveling exhibit, Sweet Home Chicago, makes a stop at the National Hellenic Museum. Learn how Chicago has been on the forefront of America’s candy scene since the late 1800s when the first wave of Greek immigrants made their way to the Windy City (including the story of a dad who invented Dove ice cream bars to keep his kids from chasing the ice cream truck!). Visitors will enjoy a short documentary narrated by Bill Kurtis, interactive displays with nostalgic photos and artifacts, a Candy IQ Quiz, candy wrapping challenge, and many other fun and tasty activities.
