Let’s be clear here, this is the National Mustard Museum, mmm-kay? This isn’t just some local, small-time mustard museum. Nope, national. Top of the line, leader of the pack, far out-ranking any other mustard museum in the country. That is, if there are any.
Do you love mustard? No? Doesn’t matter. What matters is this bizarre little place exists and they have A LOT of mustard. There’s jars and bottles from every state and almost every country in the world. In addition, there are historic product displays, a mustard jar collection, a small cafe and a mustard movie playing.
While the museum is free, its main source of income is its extensive gift shop. There is plenty of serious stuff – mustards (of course), barbecuing items, snacks etc – but the real swag worth visiting for is the novelty mustard items. Need some Meowstard for your cat? Petsup for you dog? A mustard-colored yarmulke? The only all-mustard vending machine in the world ? How about one of the the wide range of Poupon U shirts and gifts?
If your stomach isn’t roiling with…delight…after visiting the museum, stop by the Hubbard Ave. Diner next door for some great food and pie!
