This is basically Colman's shop with a set of interesting information panels describing the history of Colman's and how mustard was harvested and processed in the past plus displays of related historical models. It's well done and worth a visit if in that part of Norwich. I would have found it more interesting had it come up to date with... More

It is interesting to get a history of one of Norfolk's staples. The shop is nicely set out with a mix of merchandise as well as facts about the product. Some of the stuff is a bit pricey though.

This is a treasure trove for mustard lovers! With information about the origins and helpful staff, this shop is always welcoming. You can buy mustard in various sizes and I always buy a little pot in an adorable bag for my granny for Christmas as she loves it.

I thought his would be a much bigger exhibition than a shop with a bit of history of Colmans Mustard, I think it took us all of 10 mins to see and read the posters.

Get to have a look around this interesting shop/museum about colmans mustard, found it very nostalgic looking at all the powdered mustard and mustard pots. Even brought some. Will look forward to beef and mustard sandwiches once we are home. Yum yum

I've been in here a few times and always buy something, they do have a good selection of mustards and other odds and ends. To me it is more of a shop than a museum, but I still enjoy going in there. I like the little tasting section and always look at the exhibits, what they do have is set... More

Hi Mary, Thanks for rating Colman's Shop & Museum and writing a review - most kind. We'd love the museum aspect to be bigger and better, but unfortunately funding constraints means that expanding the museum element has been popped on hold. Yes, mustard chocolate is certainly an aquired taste! I was unsure at first but quite like it now! Kind... More
