International Vinegar Museum.

International Vinegar Museum

The International Vinegar Museum is in an old school gym. One wall is covered with vinegar bottles from around the world. The center area has historical and fun facts, and the back has a tasting bar. Who knew there were so many flavors of vinegar? Blueberry, strawberry, toasted almond, lime, blood orange, on and on.

Our son said he wanted to go buy vanilla ice cream so he could put raspberry vinegar on it!
