What to expect

In the Tomato Museum, vintage photos and documents, rare films, models and interactive screens, packaging and can openers, publications, curious objects and recipes tell the story of the so-called "red gold" right up to its irresistible triumph on the table.

The journey through the history of tomato unfolds around an ancient production line for tomato preserves: from its arrival from the Americas in the 16th century to the first timid gastronomic approaches, from the varieties and cultivation techniques to the extraordinary diffusion in the Parma area at the end of the 19th century and the birth of a powerful canning and mechanical industry, the Experimental Station and the fairs.

By selecting the private tour option, it will be possible to be accompanied as individuals, families or small groups by the qualified staff of the Tomato Museum for a visit lasting about 45 minutes.

Book the Food Museums Card and visit all the Food Museums of the province of Parma with a single ticket: Tomato Museum, Pasta Museum, Parmigiano Reggiano Museum, Salame Felino Museum, Parma Ham Museum, Culatello di Zibello Museum, Wine Museum.
