The Marzipan Museum in Kfar Tavor was founded in 1998 in two small rooms in the farmer’s yard museum in Kfar Tavor. The idea of making marzipan from the almonds grown in the surroundings soon caught on and the premises became too small. In 2001, the Marzipan Museum moved to a beautiful new visitor’s center in Kfar Tavor which explores the three main crops of the area- olives, grapes and almonds. The museum has five separate departments; • The factory where the marzipan and almond products are made, as well as a large selection of praline chocolates. Visitors can see into the factory from behind a large glass window. • The lecture hall is where the visitors learn all about the production of marzipan- from the almond trees until the finished product. There is assort, humorous film and tastes of marzipan and almond juice. • The exhibition is a wonderful display of sculptured marzipan where one can enjoy models that range from a proportionally-sized Elvis, politicians, fruits and vegetables, fairy tales, animals and more. • The marzipan and chocolate workshop that is open to groups and private visitors. Visitors make their own models form marzipan or chocolate with guidance from expert instructors. Of course one gets to take one’s creations home… • The outlet shop is where all the almonds, marzipan and chocolate products are sold together with hot and cold drinks, locally grown spices, natural health products, products of the Galilee and more.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
