Had no clue there was anything called the baking powder wars in the 1800s, but there was! Hubby and I love little museums like these that are unique and learn unusual things. Very clean, nicely done with unusual facts from our history. They also have a nice gift shop with different types of baking powders (who knew?!?!). If you have... More

Love going to Clabber Girl for rest and relaxation. They have a great cappuccino, and there is always a newspaper to go with it. (I just wish they would extend hours past 3:00 so I could unwind there after school.) I always do a walkthrough, revisiting the old-time museum, the art room, and the Victorian parlor. All of this is... More

Old red-brick building at the corner of 9th & Wabash. The Rex coffee is delicious (I like a flavor-filled plain black coffee); the cinnamon roll includes the frosting on the side (less mess & you control the sweetness); and frankly after 6 or 7 visits I have yet to encounter ANYTHING from their baked-goods that was less than great. My... More

Actually, visited with Family but no children. Excellent breakfast egg and meat wraps. The breakfast taco with chorizo was the best setting for that sausage since Newport, RI.

The Clabber Girl museum isn't very large, but it has some interesting pieces. If you've never seen in Indy race car up close, this is your chance. You can walk through in 15-30 minutes, maybe longer if you're really into history. Probably more interesting to adults than kids, but very close - walking distance- to the downtown Children's Museum. You... More

I enjoyed the Clabber Girl Museum. I learned about so many products that were a part of the family of items that contributed to Clabber Girl dynasty. We spent about an hour and fifteen minutes and felt that we saw and enjoyed the interesting things on display.

Stopped here for brunch, but enjoyed the museum as much as the food. The information on the infamous baking powder wars was worth the trip. Baking powder wars. Whoda thunk?
