Fun to look around and good bakery items

The museum part is free and informational. It was fun to walk around. We then got coffee and bakery items and moved to the sitting area which was interesting as well

Was a nice museum. Surprising information was not aware of regarding baking powder. Was a fun quick stop.

I didn't know baking powder had such an interesting history. The museum itself is small. You can go through it in 30 min. There is a small diner attached. This is where you want to go. The sandwiches are amazing and desserts are soo tasty.

The museum allows a self-guided tour of several displays from the 1850s through the 1940s. The collection is eclectic because it focuses on the development of the businesses and philanthropy of the Hulman family in and around the city of Terre Haute, IN. The growth of the Clabber Girl product line for the American kitchen provides the unifying theme. An... More

The museum definitely gives off the vibe that it was thrown together haphazardly. It's not a terrible museum, but it's rather small and unorganized.

What a cool place! A lot of antiques and history here. Big fan of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway anyway so this was great for me. I think anyone would enjoy it though. It's free! Little cafe there also.

The rich history of Terre Haute and Indy Speedway in one restaurant. Plus they serve rich coffee! Will already recommend this business. When visiting make sure you have plenty of time to enjoy every aspect of the history and legacy of The Hulmans.

Small museum with local history. Deli with great coffee, sandwiches and baked goods. Relaxing place to kill some time.

For those who love history and museums this is a great “little” place. Can’t beat the cost because the museum is free. It is about how the Hulman family came here from Germany and started a company that evolved into empire for them which included the Clabber Girl baking powder which can still be purchased today. There are some classic... More

Have some music of the Era playing in some of the displays like the bar. It would add to this very well done museum. Enjoy a d be sure to... More

Thank you for your review! Great suggestions. We typically have music playing in the background and unfortunately our stereo system is temporarily down. Should be back up and running in a few weeks. Thank you! More
