My brother mentioned that since my husband and I were driving up rather than flying, we might enjoy a stop at this museum. We certainly did. Growing up in a blue collar house hold mom & dad fed a family of 6. We didn’t always like what she fixed, though I know the largest part of the budget was for food. She used Jello in many different ways as snacks and dessert to stretch that. For the most part it was fun, and mom was creative in making it fancier and/or artistic so it had eye appeal as well. Great on summer days. I think she concocted Jello jigglers on her own as a way it could become a finger food snack, esp in the summer.

When we arrived we were asked if we’d like an overview. We said yes and it was a good introduction. The museum was really a trip down memory lane for both me and my husband. There are molds, cartoons, ads, and more. Everything except samples! Downstairs there is a transportation exhibit as well.

It was a bit tricky to find. We expected a road off the Main Street, but it is more a driveway. There is a sign but we weren’t sure from it’s positioning if it was the drive just before or just after it. So we ended up going around the block. It is actually the building behind the Jello Historical Society. For the minimal $5 admission, we enjoyed ourselves for about an hour. We’d never really shared jello stories with each other but we both seemed to have lots of them. So glad we made this stop!

We had a wonderful visit to the Jell-O museum. There is an option of having someone explain the history of Jell-O which we had. It was full of interesting facts and about 15 minutes long. The museum is small but packed with antique boxes of Jell-O, memorabilia, just an amazing amount of items. It doesn't take too long to go through. There are scavenger hunt lists to be completed if you want. Downstairs the cellar has a number of buggies and carriages on display.

Found this museum, because I love odd museums like this.

There is much history to Jello than what I thought.

So be prepared to drive slow so you don't miss the driveway back to the parking lot. It's next to a white house, but back kind of behind it. You'll see the sign before you see the house.

Paved sidewalk and parking lot. You can also park along the street for free.

It's very cheap to get in, like $5.50 per person.

The guide explained a lot, and was super friendly and helpful.

The gift shop is the first thing you come to once you enter the museum.

It doesn't offer everything you see online, due to Covid like the stuffed animals. Apparently they need time to restock online as well. They do have things in person, like shirts and chef's & baseball hats for around $16-19, magnets for a few dollars, actual edible jello cups for a couple dollars, etc. Everything is pretty affordable.

You can go down the 2 flights of stairs to the basement where there is a transportation exhibit. There are wagons and other historical artifacts.

Down there, you'll also find a bathroom which was really clean and cute, and a winter entrance/exit which is just a covered entrance/exit.

Due to the stairs both inside and out, this place may not be good for those that rely fully on wheelchairs. But if you don't, it's a great little place to tour rain or shine.

All in all, a very nice place and I recommend!

Jello has had a remarkable history, and this museum celebrates everything Jello. The staff here is amazing. Their knowledge of everything Jello is only outdone by the friendly way they treat each and every guest.

I was given the choice of getting an introductory presentation or just wandering through the museum on my own. I chose the presentation, and I am so glad that I did. Otherwise I would not have known why there is a taxidermied giraffe in the museum and many other interesting facts. Take the time to get the introduction.

I am so very glad that I stopped into this lovely museum.

Family of four loved this place! We visited while traveling through on vacation. We had a great time, got a small tour. The place is small but definately worth stopping in. The employees there, Ann & Ali were fantastic. We would definately recommend this to all! The photos we saw ahead of time looked like this might be in the middle of nowhere in someone's house but it isn't the case. Was in the downtown area of this small town and a very nice little place.

Every time we travel to Batavia to visit relatives, we intentionally visit this museum and store. We like to purchase their tee shirts, but also buy license plate rims. We toured the museum on our first visit, so we don't go into the museum.

This was an absolutely delightful experience, we learned a lot about Jello and had fun doing so. The women working there that day were super friendly and even invited out dog to tour the museum. The gift shop is wonderful as well with plenty of things to bring home, including the recipe for Jello 1-2-3.

My wife and I visited here since we like to go off the beaten path. This is about 5 miles off of exit 45 ? i think of the I 90 thru way. The tour guide gave us the fascinating story of Jell-O. Lots more to the story than you would think. They give a veterans discount and AAA discount. Normally $5.50 before discount. $5.00 after. Transportation museum was self directed and very good-mostly late 1800 sleds, carriages and a 1908 cadillac. Lots of other things manufactured in Le Roy on display. Quirky , but interesting place.

What a great little museum. Lots of fun facts about Jell-O. The old advertisements are neat and there's so much more. Plus the beautiful old carriages, sleds and tools. Really enjoyed it and the price is definitely easy on the wallet.

The ladies we met who run the museum are pasionate about JELL-O and their town. The small museum is packed with JELL-O artifacts and the gals can answer any question you may have about the product which was invented and manufactured in LeRoy. The museum also has a collection of other products that were manufactured in LeRoy over the past 100 years from rat bait to plows. The historic LeRoy house is also quite interesting. We spent a couple of hours here and had a ball. It is worth the trip. Just don't say, "General Foods".
