With over 5,624 mustards from all 50 states and more than 70 countries, our massive collection of mustards and mustard memorabilia is a sight to behold. A crate of vintage French’s… entertaining mustard ads from yesteryear… ornate and dazzling mustard jars… The Great Wall of Mustard… and so it goes. The National Mustard Museum receives mustards and items of historical significance from all over the globe. Recently, a friend brought us three handsome mustards from Bolivia. And, the mustards from Uruguay completes a South American sweep. The jar of Barcatti Mostaza arrived via Trale Bardell, who had ridden his motorcycle down to South America and came back with mustard.
One of our favorite exhibits was generously donated by the family of James Arthur Gibbons, easily the second-most passionate collector of mustard pots ever known. The stunning Gibbons Collection of antique mustard pots has been a part of the permanent collection at the National Mustard Museum since 2000 (a portion of the collection is shown in the photo).
One of the newest additions to the museum collection is the “Canada is the World’s Mustard” exhibit from Saskatchewan. This outstanding display about the world’s largest exporter of mustard seed comes via the Saskatchewan Mustard Development Commission and is definitely something to behold.
Whether you have a donation-worthy collection of antique mustard pots stashed away or not, your donations and purchases make the National Mustard Museum possible. You can Be a Friend of the Museum and see your name on our famous Friends of the Mustard Museum wall forever.
It’s ever growing and gets more fantastical by the day. It’s without a doubt The World’s Largest Collection of Mustards and Mustard Memorabilia!
