It was a wonderful museum to visit. The history of popcorn popularity is brought to life. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and turned on the machines to demonstrate how they worked. There were hands on displays for children and free popcorn with our tour. The historical museum was cool too.

We were only expecting a museum about popcorn, but it was much more. The popcorn room was very fun, but there was also a room with some local history. The basement had a very nice exhibit on President Harding. At the conclusion of our visit, we were given a box of popcorn.

Well, my visit was not this year, but in September of 2005. My family from Virginia came for a visit and I took them here while on our way onward to Columbus. Very informative and interesting to see the antiquities! I would like to revisit soon!

Really neat popcorn wagon display and quite a bit of presidential memoribilia. The curator tended to be a bit annoying. I think he was just trying to be nice and helpful too much. They have a great resource library for Civil War researchers, so bring your geneology projects.

The two people who were working at this museum the day we visited could not have been nicer. They were very helpful with explaining what was where in the museum. There was a Civil War exhibit with original letters, uniforms, et al, a time capsule from 1884, a horse that was bought in France and brought to the states in... More

The popcorn museum is just a part of the museum. It was very interesting and brought back good memories. The staff is very friendly.

Sunday I stopped to check out the popcorn museum with my guy. It is located in a historic Post Office Building. We enjoyed checking out the old popcorn machines and carts. They were shiny and beautiful. I learned a lot about corn that I did not know. There are so many kinds of corn that serve different purposes. The popcorn... More

We were given a very nice tour and several exhibits were familiar since we grew up in Marion. We did enjoy seeing the different types of popcorn machines.
