The National Mustard Museum is home of the world's largest collection of prepared mustards -- over 5,100 jars, bottles, and tubes from all 50 states and more than 60 countries.
The National Mustard Museum began when its founder, Barry Levenson, started collecting mustards on October 27, 1986. His beloved Red Sox had lost the World Series to the New York Mets that night and Barry was very depressed. He went to an all-night supermarket to wander the aisles. He turned down the condiment aisle and heard a deep resonant voice as he passed the mustards: "If you collect us, they will come." Barry bought about a dozen jars of mustard that evening and resolved to amass the world's largest collection of prepared mustards. He continued to work as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Wisconsin until 1991 when he left the law to devote his passions full-time to Mustard.
