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.

This is a small but free museum. I have gone several times and find it interesting every time. They have expanded it over the years that I have been going. They have a lunch diner that looks good but I haven't been able to go.

Met former co-workers here for a long lunch. We ordered at the counter and waited to carry our food to a table in a corner where we had more privacy to talk, laugh, and stay for awhile. The food was priced right, fresh, and fast. We also enjoyed looking around the museum and learning about the Clabber Girl history. We... More

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

Terre Haute, Indiana, USA - In this midwestern town, on the border with Illinois, is one of America's little-known local history museums, celebrating a succesful family business. You may not know the name of the business - Hulman & Co. But you may recognize the product - Clabber Girl Baking Powder. It is found in home kitchens as well as... More

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...

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.
