Nice way to kill an hour

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

We went to the Clabber Girl Museum in search of baking powder and to see the displays. They were all very interesting. Loved the grocery store and the front entryway. 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

The cafe/bakeshop has delicious soup, salad, sandwiches, and cookies. The museum gives a flavor of Terre Haute history and the gift shop has lots of nice items.

I took my 10yo daughter here around Christmas time to walk through the museum. We loved it! They have a lot of history packed into a little museum. The exhibits give you a glimpse of what life was like back in the first days of Clabber Girl baking powder. The food is pretty good too! A great place to stop... More

What an interesting museum. We have been through Terre Haute so many times, yet we never stopped here. It is easy to find in the downtown area with parking right out front. There is no charge. Clabber Girl is located upstairs with the first floor serving as the museum and bake shop where you can purchase luncheon items very reasonably.... More

We had a little time on our hands so we took a side trip here. The museum is quite well done. All on one floor so no stairs to deal with. A variety of Huhlman Company artifacts among other 1800s and later Terre Haute and Indy memorabilia. There is a cafe that serves breakfast and lunch and baked goods. We... More
