This is a very cool place. You can wander around and look at all the interesting kitchen devices as well as see interesting exhibits about southern food. I especially like that they have a bar and restaurant and encourage you to walk around with your drink and snack while you look at everything.
Cool place! Very informative & interesting museum! Highly recommended if you are a foodie.
Honestly a bit all over the place with no real curating to help you through the exhibition where quantity of objects seems to rule over quality. Surely interesting enough for nostalgic reasons for whoever can remember the cans, food and brands of the old days. The history of Popeye's exhibiton was nothing but an ad in a museum space. Hopefully the old cocktail recepies I snapped picture of will make it worth the visit.
Unique collection of items from southern historical and food pop culture. Still growing and expanding. Fun visit
This museum honestly didn't have much. It's like walking into a local grocery store, but you can't buy anything. Some of the decorations looked nice, but not much to learn here. Maybe if you don't live in the south, this set up would look different or nice, but for someone who lives here, it's like walking into a Rouses with empty boxes everywhere. The cooking demo was awful. I walked out as soon as the "chef" brought out a bottle of pre-made pasta sauce for a recipe.
