This is hardly a museum more a mustard shop with a bit of history thrown in. We actually passed it twice as we was looking for a "museum" not a shop! Anyway we found it & went in, looked about, didn't take long! Got some over priced mustard powder& went! Staff was nice though. Just don't expect much if you... More

This is a small shop selling every conceivable type of mustard. The 'museum' aspect is, however, disappointing to say the least. Apart from the old fashioned telephone on the wall behind the checkout desk there is very little historical or educational value to this 'attraction'. If you want an unusual gift or jar of mustard then this is the right... More

We popped into The Colmans Mustard Shop to buy some presents for friends and family and were pleasantly surprised by the amount and number of different types of gifts that were on offer. From little "old fashioned" mustard pots to multi-pack variety buys. The staff were extremely knowledgeable and helpful as well.

Not really a museum, just a few boards on the wall. Only two types of mustard powder which is a shame. Nice looking mustard flavoured oil and lots of jars of mustard. Some souvenir things also.

The shop was filled with attractively arranged displays of mustard products and more mustard products; we only wished that we were at the tail end of our vacation so we could have loaded up with many of the interesting items. We did buy one fairly sizable tin of mustard. The mustard product displays were quite photogenic. Tidbits of history that... More

Very interesting shop on all the history of the world famous mustard. It is situated in the arcade near the centre of Norwich. Both the location and the shop/museum are very quaint. Very informative and pleasant to look around unhurried . Staff helpful. Unable too leave without buying something mustard related . Classy displays , with good quality products.
