Whenever I travel to a new country, I usually visit museums in that town. I usually hear of the museum of arts, natural history, and others.
I have never heard of a mustard museum!
Well, when I visited Wisconsin, I learnt about the National Mustard Museum.
Unfortunately, I was not able to visit that Museum, but I would like to share some information about it.
As I was researching the web, I came across what Wikipedia’s understanding of the museum was:
“The National Mustard Museum (formerly the Mount Horeb Mustard Museum) is a museum near U.S. 14 in Middleton, Wisconsin. It boasts a large display of prepared mustards. It is often featured in lists of unusual museums in the United States.
The museum was conceived and founded by Barry Levenson, former Assistant Attorney General of Wisconsin. It centers on a mustard collection he began in 1986 while despondent over the failure of his favorite baseball team, the Boston Red Sox, to win the 1986 World Series. The initial dozen jars have grown to a collection of more than 5,300 mustards from more than 60 countries, along with hundreds of items of mustard memorabilia and exhibits depicting the use of mustard through history.”
Here’s the museum’s catalogue for the year 2009-2010:
