This little shop set in a shopping arcade is a must visit and it sells all different types of mustard and gifts relating to colemans eg yellow mustard pots, fridge magnets etc. At reasonable prices.

Not just a shop, but a museum, and not just a museum, but a museum about Englishness, the Mustard, like it or not, go and have a look!

I was in Norwich in a month ago and passed through Royal Arcade. I didn't have time to look at Colmans, but when my partner had to spend a day in the city for work, I jumped at the opportunity to driver her over and look at a few places I had missed. This was one of my first calls... More

Visited this expecting it be a museum but in reality it is a just a shop selling not only Colemans products but that of others and some souvenirs. The museum bit is just some signs on the wall together with a few old artfacts scattered around. Another visitor summed it up well when they asked an assistant 'is the museum... More

I agree that this is not really a museum, although there is some information about Coleman's history in Norwich and some artifacts. But if you like mustard, there's something for everyone: plain and fancy mustards; ingredients for various remedies incorporating mustard; mustard pots; the usual tea towels and trinkets; even mustard chocolate. I don't care for English mustard, but this... More

Found in the lovely Royal Arcade. Not what was expecting at all, but worth popping in for a quick browse. I suppose they call it a museum as there is a couple of cabinets with old tins etc in. Sells all things Colman's at average prices. Worth finding just to see the Royal Arcade!

Since moving to Norwich, I have been told many times that I need to visit Colman's Mustard Shop and Museum- so that is exactly what my partner and I did of a Sunday afternoon. We knew it wouldn't be that big of a shop as it is housed in the royal arcade, however we did expect more than what we... More

It is worth coming here just to see the wonderful Art Nouveau decoration of the Royal Arcade. The shop is small and twee and is a great place to get low priced presents - lots of mustard obviously but other locally made and themed produce as well. It is a bit of a cheek calling ths place a museum though... More
