Mustard Museum wanted for Crossville

Crossville has a claim to fame most residents don’t know.  We make 23% of the mustard consumed in the United States.  Right here in Crossville, TN.

Currently located in Middleton, Wisconsin, The National Mustard Museum was the brainchild of attorney Barry Levenson.

Opened in 1979, the Museum is open 7 days a week and has a successful internet presence.  Anyone who moved from Wisconsin is asked to reach out to family, friends and colleagues still located in Wisconsin.
