SPAM Museum

Austin, MN  July 31, 2000

Spam Museum front (72K) Spam thing  (88K)
International Spam Austin Minnesota is about 45 minutes west of Rochester.  Austin is the home of the first Hormel Meat Packing plant and their world headquarters.  I found the Spam Museum in a small store front shop in a local mall(above left).  I understand there is a larger SPAM land under construction.  Inside the Museum I found the SPAM man(above) and international spam(left).  I learned that spam is labeled in 38 languages and almost every country in the world.  There was also the history of George Hormel who founded the Hormel plant.  Sadly there was no gift shop and I could not stock up SPAM T-shirts and merchandise.
