A must for everyone who loves baked beans and British culture! Had a warm welcome from the Captain. We got some fame as there happened to be a camera man. Special experience indeed! Thanks, Captain Beany!

Great morning at the bean museum! Lots of light-hearted fun and eccentricity! A day I will fondly remember for many years to come, especially when I have beans on toast. Looking forward to the many future media appearances!
