Mustard Museum and Middleton Historical Society
A mustard museum? ABSOLUTELY! According to Barry Levenson, founder & curator of the National Mustard Museum, you can blame it all on the Boston Red Sox. In the wee hours of October 28, 1986, after his favorite baseball team had just lost the World Series, Barry was wandering an all-night supermarket looking for the meaning of life. As he passed the mustards, he heard a voice: If you collect us, they will come.
So, why all the fuss? Well, with more than 6,090 mustards from all 50 states and more than 70 countries (and counting), our collection of Mustard History is a sight to behold. From the exquisite Gibbons Collection of mustard pots to antique tins & jars and vintage advertisements, the National Mustard Museum is truly a shining temple to the “King of Condiments”.
Afterwards we will go next door to the Middleton Historical Society and take a quick walk around before heading to the Hubbard Avenue Diner for a piece of pie. The bus will depart from the Madison Senior Center at 1:00 and return by 4:00. The $5.00 fee will cover a tour fee and the bus. You are on your own for any food ordered at the Hubbard Avenue Diner.
