This museum is obviously in England, but has nothing to do with Hogwarts (I think). It shows and compares different methods of practical magic since the ancient times to these days.

NATIONAL MUSTARD MUSEUM

I have a question here. I think this place should be "The National Museum of Mustard Jars", because that's what you are going to see: mustard jars. Unless they let you taste them.

CAVE
