We stayed overnight recently in Terre Haute. After breakfast we stopped at the Clabber Girl Museum - an interesting look into the history of baking powder (and other products) and the Hulman family, started by two brothers (Francis and Herman) who emigrated from Germany in 1850. The Hulman name is also associated with Indy car racing (the family has owned... More

Traveling thru INDIANA, WE happened upon this Historical Jewell. Having grown up in the ERA that the HULMAN family reigned, it was a great pleasure to see the displays of Hoosier nostalgia. The Indy 500 relics, along with the Clabber Girl related displays, was a great break, for a long trip.

Take a look at that baking powder in your cupboard.Chances are, it was made in Terre Haute, IN. Clabber Girl museum shows how this brand evolved and exists yet today. Lots of original artifacts as well as an adjoining restaurant. A fun stop for history buffs and to see where this world wide product originated.

Clabber Girl is a fun place to visit especially if you are new to Terre Haute. The exhibits show what life was like in the Victorian era with belongings from the Hulman family collection. There is an exhibit from World War II as well as a racing car and other items from the Indianapolis Speedway, which is owned by the... More

Locals told us to go to Clabber Girl for lunch. What a fun place! We had a delicious vegan sandwich with fresh Rex Coffee roasted and brewed on the premises. You can sit in a couple of different and attractive rooms, complete with museum exhibits! This is a one of a kind place. Give it a try!

Clabber Girl has been in Terre Haute for as long as I can remember. The Museum has a café/coffee shop--they grind the coffee there. Lots of quality museum items. Close to ISU--check out the huge statue of Larry Bird (it is within walking distance from museum).

I didn't bother to have anything to eat since it was just after breakfast when we visited but the museum itself was interesting. It's a little hard to find since the address is on Wabash but the actual door is on the side street.

This museum not only houses Clabber Girl Baking Soda memorabilia but history on the area as well. A walk thru lobby/foyer with lots to see (mock bakery/store, old parlor, machinery, etc.). On the day we visited there was also a art exhibit going on, which was beautiful. There's a bakery on premises w/delicious sweet treats or you can have a... More
