Very well done
May 2021
I came here with my husband and parents and found this museum on TripAdvisor. We enjoyed it so much. The displays are well done there’s lots to look at and our docent Valarie was spectacular. As a bonus we even got popcorn on our way out. If you are near here you should definitely give this place a try.

Find the Facts about Popcorn Here.

Marion is home to the annual Popcorn Festival close to Labour Day. That's because popcorn (the little ears) are grown and processed here whether Orville Reddenbacher et cetera.

Pass the salt! A great museum of popcorn wagons and peanut roasters
May 2019 • Couples
The Wyandot Popcorn museum is located In the rear of the main floor inside the Heritage Hall Museum. It has its own big top section; billed as the largest collection of popcorn wagons and peanut roasters in the United States. There's a large collection of beautiful wagons - including the one Paul Newman used to market his Newman's own brand. Simply beautiful and very nostalgic. Displays take you through the history of the Wyandot brand. The wagons date back as far as the turn of the century and have been beautifully restored to their original condition. We also enjoyed seeing the classic antique poppers - finding the same one my family had with the top crank handle. Be sure to tour the rest of the Heritage Hall museum which has many interesting artifacts and exhibits. Don't forget to get your free popcorn bag! Hours are limited, so be sure to check ahead for your itinerary.

Fantastic collection of popcorn machines and history of Wyandot Popcorn Co. The guides tell fantastic stories that make the tour very interesting. And you get a free box of popcorn when you are finished with the tour.

Excellent collection of popcorn machines, might be best in world!

This museum is housed in the Marion Heritage Museum, so you get two museums, a very cool old post office building for the low, low price of $6/adult! The museum has tour guides to show you around the building, and the Popcorn museum section is definitely the highlight!

This great collection was contributed by the Wyandot popcorn company. It seems that Marion, OH is a major producer of popcorn, and Wyandot is a big player in the market. The museum used to be housed at their Marion factory, but they decided more visitors would see the popcorn machines if it was located in the Heritage museum.

You can spend hours admiring the beautiful popcorn and peanut machines. They have everything from popcorn shellers, to state of the art popcorn machines. You will be amazed at these mechanical wonders, especially some of the early 1900 popcorn poppers.

Helpful hint: the museum has extremely limited hours, which are 1 PM to 4 PM everyday during May-October, but then they are only open on Weekends from Nov - April. Strongly recommend you call first to make sure they are open!

This is located inside Heritage Hall which is very interesting also. Unique poppers through history with the local twist from Marion's Wyandot Popcorn Company!

The "Popcorn Museum" is Part of a Larger History Museum
Jun 2018 • Solo
I arrived 10 minutes before closing, and did not have enough time to see the full history museum, but was invited in by the very friendly guide to see the section of the museum called the "Popcorn Museum." It was basically several century-old highly decorated popcorn machines that I was told are still in working order. I was given a small bag of free popcorn, and left disappointed that I did not get to see the rest of the museum.

The name is not the popcorn museum!!
May 2018 • Family
This Marion heritage museum used to be an old post office. Now it is a museum that tells the story of President Harding. It is very interesting. I’m a sidenote they have many historical rooms filled with very interesting artifacts. For example check out the barber side in the picture I have posted it is funny yet the barber also pulls teeth and bullets! Craziness! And lastly it has a wonderful popcorn room full of old popcorn machines and peanut machines. It’s a must-see you’ll love it

If you thought you knew about popcorn, trust me, you don't until you visit the Popcorn museum.
The museum is rich in local history, has wonderful displays and is worth the trip! Set aside a couple of hours to browse.

Interesting history about popcorn in Wyandot Co.
Sep 2017 • Family
My brother in law found tickets on Groupon for the museum and bought them because our family ❤️'s popcorn. They have many old popcorn machines and some even work so you can see how the process worked and changed. The museum includes a Harding room, old mercantile and many other historical artifacts. The tour was the right amount of time for my 2 year old and we all received a box of free popcorn at the end. I will recommend this to family and friends!
