Hawaii Mom Blog: Visit Minnesota: SPAM Museum

Visit Minnesota: SPAM Museum

We of course had to stop by the SPAM Museum while in Minnesota, since we live in the "SPAM capitol of the world."

There were lots of engaging exhibits throughout the museum, and you could learn all sorts of facts, get recipes emailed to you, and so much more.

It was interesting to see the evolution of the SPAM can, and how the product has evolved into a current 15 different varities.

I also thought it was neat to see how much the museum recognized Hawaii as playing such an important role in SPAM's history.

There were several interactive stations for the kiddos, and even a playground and play kitchen so kids could cook up their own SPAM dishes!

And yes, you can even get samples of SPAM!

We couldn't leave without buying some SPAM!  I know our local grocery stories carry several varieties of SPAM, but if I buy SPAM it's typically the original version, so I decided to buy a few other varieties I never tried, including the Tocino, which was made for the Philippines.

You could get all sorts of SPAM memorabilia - t-shirts, stuffed animals, and even SPAM slicers!

The SPAM Museum was quite crowded, and I heard many other guests say they only have one kind of SPAM at their local grocer, so many of them ending up buying variety packs.

If you happen to end up near Austin, Minnesota, definitely stop by the SPAM Museum!
