Learn. Taste. Shop. Laugh!
Visitors to the Mustard Museum are admitted free to the famed Mustardpiece Theatre. Discover the magic of mustard with engaging titles such as Mustard: The Spice of Nations, shown daily on a big screen TV. Travel the globe to the mustard fields of Canada, the sausage carts of Germany, the elegant restaurants of France, and to England’s venerable Colman Mustard Company.
The grand old Theater has also been host to many Poupon U mustard musicals over the years, including: The Sound of Mustard, The Phantom of the Museum, Les Moutardes, Hello, Dollop!, Curator on the Roof, Annie Get Your Bun, and unforgettably, The Full Mustard.

Mrs. Mustard’s Kitchen
While at the Museum, stop by Mrs. Mustard’s Kitchen where you can learn how to add mustard to your everyday diet with cooking tips & recipes and general advice. Did you know that mustard is actually quite good for you? Tests have shown that eating a modest amount of strong mustard with a meal tends to increase metabolism. Shoot, the English use mustard to relieve stress and actually bathe in it to soak away tension and fatigue. But back to more traditional advice — while most mustards don’t require refrigeration, we recommend refrigerating all mustards (even before opening) for maximum flavor and to keep that characteristic mustard bite! Ahhhh yes, so much to share. In the meantime, you can sample Mrs. Mustard’s golden wisdom at Mrs. Mustard’s Blog!
