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. Stop by the restaurant for southern-style homemade dishes and bean desserts, and head to the old-fashioned general store for souvenirs.

  • The second I took one bite I nutted in my pants and it went everywhere, they were the best beans I've ever had but then I started eating them.... with my bum.  more »
  • 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!!!
