Museums celebrating quirky subjects are certainly nothing new. Visitors to Middleton, Wis. might find themselves enjoying the National Mustard Museum. Logan, Ohio tourists are sure to spend time at the city's Pencil Sharpener Museum. But the Dinnerware Museum is no oddball attraction.
According to a press release, the museum's focus is "collecting, conserving and preserving, exhibiting, and educating the public about international dinnerware created from ceramic, glass, wood, metal, lacquer, paper, plastic, and fiber, which celebrates a significant aspect of our daily lives from ancient times to the present."

Unforgettable Dinnerware "celebrates selective memories of food, fun and dinnerware, providing a window on our material culture, norms and attitudes toward food and dining," according to the press release.
After Saturday's opening reception, the exhibit will run through May 17, with daily hours from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Additional information can be found on the Dinnerware Museum website and Facebook page.
