    Listen - if the very concept of a SPAM museum appeals to you, you must go. If the very idea of a SPAM museum makes you shake your head, you won't like it. This is a place that revels in the thought that SPAM is a punchline. It's full of very amusing displays, built as if the gang from Monty Python designed it themselves. And yes, there is a tribute to the famous sketch towards the end of the museum. There are about a dozen or so different displays - some serious (a display of all the products Hormel produces) to the very silly (such as a "puppet show" on the early history.) At the end of the self-guided tour, you will find a massive gift shop with all the SPAM related merchandise you didn't know you needed. Plenty of photo ops along the way in this free museum. Even the website is awesome. Highly recommended!

    Baby girl and Spammy History of the can They make all of this too!

    The Shrine to Spam!
    A free museum to visit in Minnesota. You can learn more about Spam than you thought possible. Which State in The USA has the highest per capita consumption of Spam? It's not what you think!!!! Definately a cheesy tourist stop. But it was a great way to stretch our legs.

    The Spam Museum How fast can you can Spam?
