What could be better than some spam? “Anything,” you may answer.  And you’re probably right. But that’s not going to stop you (and me!) from visiting the Spam Museum in Austin, MN. The new and updated location is now located in the heart of Austin. Wander in awe at the number of displays that curators managed to create, all based on one cheap, salty pork product. Play with interactive exhibits, watch the spam counter climb, and be awed that so many people would willingly put spam in their mouths. The docents at the museum seemed rather sour about their jobs. Perhaps we weren’t giving spam the gravitas they felt it observed.  Or perhaps they were just half-mad from listening to Monty Python’s Spam song on endless loop.

While you’re in town, take time to visit The Paramount Theatre, Sweet Reads Books & Candy or the 1920 Fresh Mexican Restaurant.
