The new 14,00 SF SPAM® Museum replaces the original SPAM museum, which was located at Hormel Foods headquarters and temporarily closed in September 2014. The museum features interactive exhibits and galleries looking at Spam's popularity around the globe, Spam's history with the US military, and Spam today. It also features a set of bluegrass instruments made of Spam cans, a 12-foot Spam rocket, a Spam can conveyor suspended from the ceiling, and a Spam children's play area. Along with a 1,400 SF SPAM gift shop which offers hundreds of Spam-branded items and gifts.
MEP Associates, LLC (MEP) provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and lighting (LED). Challenges on the project included coordination with a company specializing in the design of museums for the display and exhibit power and temperature requirements.
