Longtime Middleton Mustard Museum owners looking to sell popular landmark
After a decade in Middleton, Mustard Museum Owner Barry Levenson and his wife are looking for someone to replace them. Levenson said it’s time to retire.
Even though he is leaving, he doesn’t want the condiment shrine to go to just anyone. He said he’ll only sell if the new owner plans to keep the nonprofit museum and for profit store up and running.
“We want to make sure that it’s in good hands. We are looking for someone who’s got a real passion for life, and maybe someone that’s a little crazy, because that’s come in handy over the last 24 years,” he said.
The Levensons will not disclose how much the Mustard Museum costs. They said they are currently talking to a number of people. The museum was originally in Mount Horeb before moving to Middleton.
Middleton Mayor Kurt Sonnentag was sad to hear the news. He told News 3 that Levenson and the Mustard Museum has been a unique and important part of the city’s continuously growing downtown.
