Sunday I stopped to check out the popcorn museum with my guy. It is located in a historic Post Office Building. We enjoyed checking out the old popcorn machines and carts. They were shiny and beautiful. I learned a lot about corn that I did not know. There are so many kinds of corn that serve different purposes. The popcorn... More

We were given a very nice tour and several exhibits were familiar since we grew up in Marion. We did enjoy seeing the different types of popcorn machines.

It is easy to miss if you are looking for a sign saying Popcorn Museum. There is one but you probably won't see it due its location and color scheme. So, just look for the big building at Church and State. You will smell the popcorn when you first walk in. But this museum is so much than just a... More

Marion has a wonderful historical society that offers programs I have not seen other places. This spring they had a national exhibit on the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln. There was a dinner where everyone had a historical figure at their table to talk to in character. The panel of Civil War figures was fun and informative to listen to.... More

The museum tour is in the previous Marion OH post office building...which is loaded w/beautiful architecture & marble, etc. There's an area dedicated to the history of Popcorn production in Marion- that is still alive in two plants today. But it also has great artifacts that relate to the actual history of Marion that is soooo interesting that it could... More

You will learn a lot about popcorn and see many different styles of popcorn poppers, as well as get a free bag of popcorn! It is a fun place to "hang out" and browse. The smell will draw you in!

The museum provided a nice folksy tour of the popcorn industry with many interesting machines and vehicles. The popcorn museum resides within the county historical museum so there are also many local artifacts to view as well as a Harding exhibit. The docent explained the different styles of popcorn machines and how the vehicles evolved. The free box of popcorn... More
