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.

Gift piggy heads. SPAM Museum

The receptionist greets you immediately as you pass under the "Great Wall of Spam" (which you might miss otherwise). Be prepared to spend a good hour or two in this fabulous museum. We spent the most time in the extensive gift shop, chock full of SPAM T-shirts, umbrellas, mouse pads, and many other items.
