The Missouri Marmite Museum
The Missouri Marmite Museum celebrates the world's most famous love-it/hate-it item: a yeast extract
made from the dregs found at the bottom of British beer barrels, and sold in adorable brown glass jars.
The museum's collection began with one metal-top jar purchased in 1974; today the collection is a broad spectrum of plastic-top jars, toy trucks, cookbooks, stuffed animals, thimbles, toast racks, advertisements, and wearing apparel: socks, t-shirts, aprons, and sweatshirts. Parts of the collection come from India, New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, England, Sri Lanka, Canada, and Hong Kong - with the oldest item (1930's) having been excavated from a rubbish dump in Wales.
The Missouri Marmite Museum, located in Valley Park, Missouri, is open by appointment only. Be sure to ask for a private screening of our exclusive video of Dr. Marmite's appearance at the Museum's opening ceremonies.
