AAA Editor Notes

SPAM Museum is downtown at 101 3rd Ave. N.E. It is dedicated to the luncheon meat first produced at the Hormel Foods Corp. plant in 1937. Galleries trace the history of SPAM, its role as a source of nourishment for the American military during World War II and how it is made (using just six ingredients). Visitors can participate in an interactive game that simulates making SPAM, and interactive video screens emphasize SPAM's prominence in popular culture. You can also try a free “spample” of the pork product. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
Hours: Mon.-Sat. 10-5, Sun. noon-5. Closed Jan. 1, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas.
