While visiting family in Winona, I toured the Watkins Museum. The cosmetic and spice company is a true American success story--a family company that through hard work and business acumen has achieved international success. After learning the Watkins story, I shopped at the small but well-displayed museum gift shop. The lady behind the counter was knowledgeable about the different products... 更多
I visit regularly - the museum is small but informative. The essences, spices and bath products are fantastic. I like the quality of the products and keep coming back for more. I appreciate the relatively small range of well known products that have stood the test of time.
I remember seeing some of the older products in our kitchen when I was growing up and also in my Mother-in-Law's kitchen. The memories brought a smile to my face. Current products are very nice.
Everything you wanted to know about the Watkins story with a chance to browse the gift shop (of course). Small, informative museum. No tour of the manufacturing facilities are offered.
The Watkins Museum displays the history of the Watkins Company. The Watkins Company was originally a door-to-door sales company. From hand creams to soaps, these things are not only on display, but for sale in the store, along with a variety of cooking products and spices.
We were very surprised by the number of products Watkins use to make and what they currently make. I thought of Watkins as a company that sold only extracts and spices. However, they do sell hand creams, body washes, dish soap, etc. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The museum is interesting seeing all of the products they use... 更多
A small museum dedicated to the history and products produced by this company. They also have a store where you can purchase various Watkins products.
The price was right, free and there is a store to buy their products. The only drawback is there was no bathroom and if you go on a weekend you can't see the stained glass and ceilings in the Administration building.
Small museum and store - lots of interesting displays with old products and information about the Watkins company. A very small store is attached but purchases aren't required. It was a neat stop!
