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.

A fascinating look at the history of an icon of American marketing - Clabber Girl baking powder, with displays of kitchens, a saloon, a grocery store, and much more.

We recently visited the Clabber Girl Museum on our return from the Terra Cotta Warriors Exhibit in Indy and the Miller House & Gardens in Columbus, IN. This was a highlight of the tour that no one expected. We had a WONDERFUL guided tour by Megan Maxie for half of our group and then a cooking demo by an expert... More

I wandered around the museum around 9AM. There was no one else there. They have interesting vintage items on display - a switchboard, stove, Hansom cab, etc. Many items relate to the Calbber Girl products. There is an Indy racecar also. The front door is the original revolving door from the building. It's worth it to show young people that... More
