The Museo del Turrón will be celebrating International Museum Day on Wednesday May 18 with free entry, tastings, and gifts.
In celebrating the event, its aim will be to recount the history of the nougat industry and to provide information on the nougat and marzipan manufacturing processes, their marketing and distribution, and on the main characters that have contributed to their long history.
To celebrate International Museum Day, the Museo del Turrón will be offering free tasting of a wide range of products, including the traditional nougats from Jijona and Alicante as well as other Christmas sweets and chocolates.
Visitors will also be offered 50% discounts on all the Museum’s books and merchandising and a free nougat cutter with every product bought.
Jijona’s Museo del Turrón forms part of the Province of Alicante’s Industrial Tourism Network and is recognised as an official museum of Valencia by the Region’s Generalitat.
THE MUSEO DEL TURRÓN IS TO PARTICIPATE IN A NEW EDITION OF THE TAPAS ROUTE “TAPEANDO CON TURRÓN POR JIJONA”
The Museo del Turrón is to participate in a new edition of the tapas route, “Tapeando con Turrón por Jijona”, awarding the prize for the Best Presentation and opening its doors as part of the gastronomic route which will end on May 29.
The Museum, which will be handing out “tapassports” for scoring the different tapas, will provide an additional stopping point on the gastronomic route at which visitors will be able to learn more about the history and development of what is one of the world’s oldest sweets. Its three floors will offer an insight into the sector and its longstanding traditions and into the raw materials and production and marketing processes used over the course of its extended history.
