The Spam Museum has moved downtown to the corner of 3rd Ave. and Main St. in Austin. Fun, interactive displays, and the guides are super friendly and have tons of info. No spam samples. There's an indoor play space for kids.

After meaning to stop the last five times we visited family in the Minneapolis area, we finally made it to the Spam Museum, with just 45 minutes to spare before it closed. It was quite interesting! Kids would enjoy it, too. Be sure to pick up one of the many varieties of Spam on your way out.
