If you are a mustard fanatic like myself, you will be thrilled to know there is a museum dedicated to this must-have condiment! It's called the National Mustard Museum and resides in Middleton, WI. I was in mustard heaven when I took a tour and interviewed Mrs. Mustard, one of the curators. The museum is an interactive playground for adults and children.

In my opinion, mustard is more American than apple pie. There are so many varietals and I like its versatility. I make my own vinaigrette salad dressings and Mrs. Mustard gave me a brilliant idea; add mustard to the vinaigrette. I used a chipotle mustard and it gave my dressing the perfect little kick.
The National Mustard Museum stocks more mustards than anyone else with 5,500 jars in the house from all 50 states and 70 countries. In fact, there are about 450 different mustards that can be taste tested by visitors (I have my work cut out for me). Tour groups are welcome and can be booked 7 days a week between the hours of 10am and 4pm.
