  • Who would've known that Jell-O originated in upstate NY? This museum is worth visiting if only to say that you've been to a museum about Jell-O. :) Admission is only about $5 (and they offer a AAA discount as well). There's a small carriage museum in the basement. A guide will sit you down when you arrive and briefly explain the (short) history of Jell-O, and then you're free to browse the gallery. Highlights include the ceiling of spoons, voting for your favorite jello flavor, the Jell-O brick road, and my personal favorite, all the crazy advertisements the Jell-O company has come out with over the years. I mean seriously. You definitely need some serious advertising if you want people to eat Jello with their salads. The museum itself is pretty small, but it has it's own little gift shop where you can buy Jell-O and novelty Jell-O boxers that say "Watch it jiggle! Watch it wiggle!" on them. There isn't much to do in Le Roy proper besides this see this museum, the historical society next door, and visit the Depot restaurant. Half a day is more than enough time to see the main bits of Le Roy, with about 45 minutes of that dedicated to the Jell-O Gallery. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit this museum since it is really small, but if you're a real fan or if you're in the area, definitely check it out.
  • WOW! What a great place to visit. We spent hours taking in all the sites. Bill Cosby did not visit this museum. Years of history packed into a small area by definitely worth the time if you love Jello😀
  • A little confusing with the signs from the road. If you are not from the town, you wouldn't know it was behind another house. It was a very cute and small museum. I loved the pictures of the different time eras of jello. Pretty neat. They sell the jello for $1 here
  • Tiny, but informative. Don't expect big. It's more of an historical marker. Jell- O souvenirs sold here.
  • Fun place to stop by but its a quick visit. It's more fun to say that you have been to the Jello museum than actually go.
