You can walk through a giant replica can of beans as you learn about a bean's journey to become part of the product. Head into Duke's doghouse, or learn your weight in beans and get a photo with Duke.

  • I enjoyed every second of being here. It's fun, engaging, and everyone working was very kind. There's a lot of fun activities and things to do that don't cost anything. The beans are cheaper to buy than in stores. All the food we tried in the cafe was delicious. Outside the visitor center is absolutely beautiful, too, if you like scenery!
  • The employees were wonderful! Very interesting and inviting. We just happened upon this place on the way . We only had enough time to look quickly thru. It’s a wonderful piece of USA history of hospitality:) . They also have a store and restaurant. There was an informational game and if answer all questions-get something free at the end . I’m going back for the whole deal, guided tour on my next trip! Thank you so much Bush’s!!!
