What a well put together history of Clabber Girl. It reminded me of an old town feel, while walking on a brick road, and checking out the history of it all. Stop by for a delicious meal in their Clabber Girl Café. The museum is free and well worth a look through

At the beginning of our road trip, we spent the night in Terre Haute. My husband looked up thigs to see and found this little museum. We love food and food related things so this was very interesting for us. The displays were authentic, a 30-45 minute self guided tour. We say them roasting and grinding the Rex coffee beans... More

We had our wedding rehearsal dinner here. Everything was wonderful and professional. We were able to use the eating space past the bake shop for the dinner and the museum for a cocktail hour after. The in-house kitchen is the only catering option. The food was excellent and the staff were very good. Meeting and organization with the management was... More

Very clean, wonderful, but small exhibits related to the baking/coffee industry and Hulman family.. Like a walk back in time. They have a café, but we did not make a purchase. Definitely worth a quick stop. The company spent a lot of money on this beautiful museum. Honestly, the nicest thing I saw in Terre Haute.

The museum was within easy walking distance of our hotel downtown. The displays were informative and interesting. The whole thing takes about a half hour to go through if you read all the signs. At a cost of FREE, it was a great value.

It's free to the public. The museum is at the first floor of the building. It's fun to walk thru the museum. Take about twenty minutes

Again, I was surprised at how well this museum was set up. I'm old enough to remember some of the items shown in this interesting museum. It is a history of Americana and brought back many nostalgic memories of my grandparents and a time gone past. Don't miss it.

This was very interesting a journey back in time. The displays of kitchens, old stores and the saloon and a small bake shop were you can buy cookies, coffee.etc. It's a stop worth the time.
