The Museum can be a helpful tool if it's someone first time in Vidalia, or just to get information on the happening, dates, times, location, cost, etc. A good starting Point!!

We visited the Vidalia Onion Museum for about 15 minutes. I would say it wasn't all that exciting. Lovely tour guide who gave us information that was on the walls.

Small in size but large in content. Worthwhile time to learn of the history of the local sweet onion history and early pioneers. Professional and very friendly greeting staff

A small Museum with a lot of history. You learn all about the history of the Vidalia onion through pictures, exhibits and a film. The Museum is self guiding and very informative. A nice little stop

This was not a large place, but it was packed with information presented in a fun way. There were videos, memorabilia displays, maps and multi-media presentations. About a half hour stay to see just about everything
