Chocolate enthusiasts Magnus Johansson and Tony Olsson started the first Swedish chocolate festival at Nordiska museet in 2002.

They chose the Nordiska museet with its cultural heritage as the perfect setting for the event. Ever since, the grand hall in the museum has become a meeting place for chocolate lovers during a weekend in the middle of October.
