This carefully curated collection showcases the varied elements of cooking and cuisine across five centuries.
Examples of fine service pieces and cutlery include silver sandwich boxes, knife rests, and egg guillotines—all just one room away from still-life images of the humble early New England kitchen, the center of the home (where many families slept, too), its glowing hearth filled with hanging cast-iron pots. Another exhibit highlights the role of the celebrity chef in our lives, from the great Antonin Carême (who cooked for Napoleon and the Rothschilds) to New England’s own Julia Child.

Menus, kitchen equipment, appliances, cookbooks, and gadgets galore–this 250,000-piece collection of all things culinary is a multicourse feast for the senses.

Huge helpings (more than half a million) of food-related items, from antique stoves to hotel silverware. We’ve come a long way in the kitchen and the story from beginning to present day is better understood when you can actually see the artifacts — some that are familiar and many that look almost medieval. Museums always advertise something for everyone, but this one actually delivers. Bring the kids.
