The National Mustard Museum is a museum near U.S. 14 in the heart of downtown 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.The museum opened its doors in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin on April 6, 1992. It moved across the street to a larger site in October 2000. In November 2009, the museum moved to Middleton and changed its name to the present one.Admission is free of charge, and the museum is open between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., though it is closed on Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.The museum's gift shop occupies about half of its floor space and offers free tasting of mustard samples from a refrigerated case containing scores of varieties; the museum also operates a mail-order mustard business.Plan my trip to Middleton with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

I love mustard and the mustard museum caters to every mustard preference imaginable. I have found some great mustards here. The museum downstairs is very interesting too.

Unique venue. Mesuem of mustard downstairs, upstairs is a gourmet shop of endless types of mustard. Ended up buying several different flavors of mustard. A must see.

A mustard store masquerading as a museum. Lots of fun, though. A wide variety of mustards and they'll let you taste them all.
