SPAM Museum

Hormel, which makes SPAM (and 3,000 other food-like products) is headquartered in Austin. In 1991 it opened a small storefront company museum in a local mall. But its visitors mostly cared about SPAM. The company quickly rechristened it the SPAM Museum, but the public wanted more. So in 2002 Hormel opened an expansive new SPAM-centric museum in its own custom building, right across the street from the meat plant. If you want to fully savor American cuisine, you should visit the New World of Coca-Cola, the McDonald's Museum, and here.

I rise to present a strong objection to their statement "to fully savor American cuisine, you should visit the New World of Coca-Cola, the McDonald's Museum, and here."  That list is to American cuisine as a block of marble is to a Rodin sculpture.
