This is a fun little kitschy museum. The lower lever has the exhibits. There aren't many items out on display, but they do have some fun things to look at. The upstairs had a shop jam packed with different mustards, and you can sample any of the mustards that are for sale which is really fun!

For over twenty years I wanted to visit but it took a friend to move to Chicago and agree to go with me to actually do it, and by that time the museum moved from Mount Horeb to Middleton. I flew into Milwaukee and my friend picked me up at the airport. We drove to Middleton together and stayed the... More

Even if mustard isn't your favorite condiment this is a fun place to visit. Upon entering the upstairs mustard shop we were met with friendly greetings and offers of free tastings. You can actually taste just about any mustard you'd like at the Mustard Bar. Humor is a common theme starting with the items for purchase from the mustard university,... More

How long can you look at 5600 jars of mustard? The staff was very accomodating, and friendly. The displays are well done, but there really isn't anything exceptional about this place. It's something for a mustard nut, not for the average traveler. Not a lot to sample either, and if you buy something, it's expensive.

Great place to stop and try the many mustards of your dreams. They have them all. A large sample bar is available for tasting any flavor you desire. We stocked up on many exotic varieties that we have not seen in any gourmet stores.

This is a cute corner store and more that spices up a sleepy but pleasant downtown Middleton. This is a cross between a large boutique store or a very small museum with some fun sideshow-y activity stations. There is a lot of mustard. Any mustard lover can find something new to try here again and again. The ability to sample... More

So it's not the Louvre or the Smithsonian...this is still a museum (albeit with a narrow focus), and it's still endlessly entertaining! From learning about mustard production to viewing early advertising for this condiment, to playing games centered around mustard, the basement of this museum makes it fun to learn about this brightly colored, versatile condiment. But upstairs is where... More

I don't even like mustard but we decided to visit on a whim. I found it interesting that there were so many kinds of mustard. I would definitely recommend visitors to the Madison area to visit as a random, free attraction!

All kinds of mustard available - all flavors from different states&countries are on display, including Slovakia, where my family is from - took my pic with the French's Mustard guy!!! Sampled different flavors like onion/horseradish mustard and read the articles on the wall about mustard being biblical and medicinal. Its free and unusual.
