Jell-O Museum

Visited this summer and so enjoyed it. AAA/CAA discount offered. Great gift shop where we bought Jell-o magnets, pencils, molds, and postcards. No more emphasis on Bill Cosby.

Jell-O Museum

If go to the Jell-O Museum on a Sunday, close to closing, no entrance fee will be charged and they will let you walk through, albeit quickly... But it doesn't take long.

It was fun and educational. In the basement of the museum you can find artifacts and transportation gallery. Including in your fee is the Leroy House, which is in front of Jell-O.

Jell-O.

Jello Museum

A fabulous, kitschy museum where you can learn everything you ever wanted to know about the jiggly dessert. History includes stories about how Jello was the first product marketed door-to-door, had the longest running spokesman, and other interesting facts! A worthy stop on the way to Niagara Falls.

Jell-O Cow.

Jell-O Museum

The museum charges admission now, but somewhat reasonable given the size of it. The transportation exhibit in the basement is sponsored by the local historical society and is comparable to the rest of the museum. A local high school girl gave us a brief presentation at the beginning of the museum and shared the history of Jell-O. Also new is the painted Le Roy cow with the Jell-O girl on the side. I'm thinking they need a little sampling table with "Jell-O of the day."
