Always good

Food is always good at Clabber Girl. Sometimes you do have to wait in line longer than you'd like so be prepared for that if you go at a prime time.

This immaculate snapshot of the past presents dioramas of the past with wonderfully preserved relics, many related to products manufactured by Hulman Industries. Displays include a reproduction of an old time butcher/grocery shop, a carriage advertising Clabber Girl baking soda, an old safe and adding machine. Expect to spend about an hour.

It was OK. I wouldn't really call it a museum as much as a pretty big historical display. They had a couple of neat pieces - I particularly liked the old employee time clock - but other wise no big deal. The café looked a little pricey and the girls working there weren't exactly enthusiastic. The coffee was good though.... More

As the title says. Not much of a museum, but they do try to stick it to you in the cafe with the high prices of what they call food.

Small, but interesting. There's a little food place adjacent to the museum which offers some great sandwiches, etc. Nice for a stop-by if you're not in a hurry.

The sandwich shop was wonderful. What a treat after walking through the museum. The gift shop has a lot of nice and interesting baking items.

Been driving by for a few years and finally stopped on a Saturday. Great old time vibe and interesting historical Info on a familiar brand. We will be back for a week day tour of this working plant!

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Clabber Girl is a combination restaurant/shop/museum...depending on where you are. Breakfast and lunch is available and the famous REX coffee is served. Rex coffee as well as Clabber Girl baking powder is available for purchase as well. The museum has areas to bring back memories of the way things used... More

Excellent museum, well worth taking time to visit. Beautifully restored ornate woodwork, cobblestones, period furniture and tools. If you love to bake, you should really visit. You will be glad you did.

We tried to do only local things this trip to Terre Haute and went to the Museum. We first went to the Cafe and had breakfast and then toured the museum. It was free and very nice. Highly recommended.
