Vidalia Onion Museum

Field review by the editors.

Vidalia, Georgia

Five years of planning reportedly went into this museum, opened in 2011, which celebrates the Official State Vegetable of Georgia. Savor the science of what makes Vidalia onions sweet, and why southeast Georgia is the only place where Vidalias can be grown. See a hand-painted 3-D mural of the onion in culinary action, marvel at the World's Smallest Onion Field, test your skills at Vidalia sorting and grading, and learn the long history of protecting the Vidalia name from onion wannabes. Best of all, you'll get to see the Vidalia "Yumion," one of the more terrifying mascots ever created.
