A nice shop in the Royal Arcade. Good for cheap presents but not really a museum!

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... read more

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

We went there as we had hoped to have a nice mustard museum&shop experience. The shop was tiny and average. Nothing impressive really. Upstairs was closed on Sunday so could not see the museum unfortunately.

Nice little museum/shop and worth a visit if you have 30 minutes to spare. Interesting history of the product and the company and some novel items available to buy. Some modern products as well as some old fashioned to bring memories flooding back. Helpful staff and free entry.

Some Coleman's products available lots of other people's products too. Museum is just signs on the wall and a few odd Coleman's related things.

The place is nice, but to call it a museum is a bit optimistic. It is a Colman shop that also sells other products and souvenirs, and at the rear of the shop there are a few historical artefacts and a bit of history of how they made mustard before it was mechanised. It tells how the husk of the... More

The shop is laid out is a quaint yester-year meets the modern world style and is just crammed full of many interesting and exciting meal time accompaniments. There is also a nice look at the Colman's story and how it worked within the City in years gone by to make it the brand name remembered when it comes to mustard.... More

Mustard must rate along side marmite in the fact that you either love,or loathe it. So to visit a place dedicated to the bright yellow material is novel in itself. Anyone who has seen the local football side take to the pitch cannot fail to note that they are decked out in the brightest of colours,and one of those is... More
