This museum only opens a few times per year. It's very tiny but fairly interesting. Usually when they are open they serve free waffles so it gets pretty crowded. You can also get a cute little Waffle House hat.

Love the waffles. Service is not that friendly though. They are working on tips only you figure they be good at customer service to generate more business for more tips. The only complaint.

I eat at Waffle Houses all over the south. The employees are always so friendly and look like the love working for WH. The museum was a culmination of many years of WH experiences.

An absolute, but hours open are restrictive. I enjoyed learning more history about Waffle House and their 1st location in Avondale Estates.

Went here to waste time and ended up ordering a burger which I didn't really want but did eat. It was standard for the price. Quick service. Friendly staff. Would go again.

You better call their corporate office or email them. Unless you have a large group and schedule an opening, I would doubt that they would be open. It is rare that they are open by chance. That would be my suggestion.
