Adorable Museum. We were pleasantly surprised and very glad we stopped on our way back from Rochester to Canada. The 2 ladies that greeted us were lovely and did a great job of telling us the story of Jello. It is a small museum but...More

I've rated this small museum average not because I didn't like it (I did), but because it isn't of the scope, scale, or professional quality of the many truly excellent museums I've visited. If you are in the area with an hour to kill, this...More

Tucked away in a little town. Absolutely adorable! Voted for our favorite jell-o flavor. Wrote down our favorite jell-o memory. Enjoyed the oil paintings and memorabilia. Purchased a vintage jello mold. Highly recommend. Loved the brick pathway.

I'm not sure - we only had a car and there was street parking in front of the museum. You may want to call the museum to be sure - the number is (585) 768-7433.
