The most interesting part of the Wyandot Popcorn Museum to me was the display of all the different sizes and colors of the ears of popcorn as well as the vintage bags and containers for various brands of popcorn. All of the popcorn carts and machines are nice and shiny to look at but not that interesting. Don't tell the... More

We'd seen this advertised in a guidebook and arrived at 3.30 on Saturday afternoon (the museum closes at 4!) The man on the desk was kind enough to allow us to pop in to visit the popcorn part of the museum - which was fascinating! His colleague was somewhat less accommodating, sadly.

It was a wonderful museum to visit. The history of popcorn popularity is brought to life. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and turned on the machines to demonstrate how they worked. There were hands on displays for children and free popcorn with our tour. The historical museum was cool too.

We were only expecting a museum about popcorn, but it was much more. The popcorn room was very fun, but there was also a room with some local history. The basement had a very nice exhibit on President Harding. At the conclusion of our visit, we were given a box of popcorn.

Well, my visit was not this year, but in September of 2005. My family from Virginia came for a visit and I took them here while on our way onward to Columbus. Very informative and interesting to see the antiquities! I would like to revisit soon!

Really neat popcorn wagon display and quite a bit of presidential memoribilia. The curator tended to be a bit annoying. I think he was just trying to be nice and helpful too much. They have a great resource library for Civil War researchers, so bring your geneology projects.

The two people who were working at this museum the day we visited could not have been nicer. They were very helpful with explaining what was where in the museum. There was a Civil War exhibit with original letters, uniforms, et al, a time capsule from 1884, a horse that was bought in France and brought to the states in... More

The popcorn museum is just a part of the museum. It was very interesting and brought back good memories. The staff is very friendly.
