Did you know there is a SPAM museum?

    SPAM museum

    Monty Python made SPAM popular because of the televised show in 1970 written by Terry Jones and Michael Palin. The repetitive menu offerings of SPAM made the sketch one of their most popular sketches 50 years ago. Did you know there is a museum dedicated exclusively to SPAM? They have a SPAMbassador as a job title. How cool is that?

    Becoming a SPAMbassador is up there with being knighted. We’re proud to be represented by these noble food fellows. They’ll make sure your visit is full of wonder and hunger!

    The SPAM Museum is an admission-free museum in Austin, Minnesota dedicated to SPAM, a brand of canned precooked meat products made by Hormel Foods Corporation. The museum tells the history of the Hormel company, the origin of SPAM, and its place in world culture.
