It genuinely is an experience - be prepared to be fully immersed in the joy and silliness of baked beans, from the moment you contact Captain Beany to arrange your visit! Not for the passive visitor or the claustrophobic.

We visited the Captain while we were visiting The Mumbles, and I was so shaken to my core by the extravagance of the Baked Bean Museum of Excellence that I'm still processing it days later.

Special mention to the Captain's spacepod coffin which is simply beautiful.

The visit genuinely might of cured my depression.

Captain Beany hosted us for 90 minutes at his unique and whacky museum. He shared lots of bean there stories and had us spitting beans as we laughed and gasped. What a Gent! You'll never find a museum quite like this anywhere so don't miss it.

Captain Beany is an absolute star and all round good bloke. He has raised a tremendous amount of money for charity over the years and is a great host when you visit the museum. He has an excellent collection of baked bean related memorabilia there and will provide you with a personal tour.

I can guarantee you will not forget your visit to the Baked Bean Museum of Excellence. Still chuckling about my visit the next day! Anything that brings a smile like this is definitely worth going to. Go on! Bring your friends and spread the bean. Thanks, Claire
