Hi, I'm Stanley Olorenshaw, and I proudly present the ACCRINGTON MARMITE MUSEUM, north Lancashire's largest museum dedicated solely to the world's finest savoury snackspread.

To help us achieve our aim to open in Accrington, have a look round the museum, and donate to for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund. When donating you can leave a comment on planetfrank page. If you don't want to pay money over the internet, hand cash over to my friend Andrew Budd, and he'll pay it in for you.
Permanent premises are currently being sought in central Accrington, with opening expected late in 2012.

This is an architect's impression of the new museum, with facilities.

The building will have large gutters, to cater for the copious quantities of rain that fall on Accrington.

This is a reproduction on an early marmite jar, and (right) this is the Marmite Centenary jar issued for 1902-2002.

An advert for a dating website (above),

and (right) the Marmite family, one in special Christmas clothes. 

(I only buy the big boys; I wish they did 1kg jars.) 

Ceramic plate with Marmite design, a very popular and scratched plate, in constant use.
The recent Marmite Specials:
"Guinness", just like regular marmite and therefore excellent,
"Marmite cricket special" made from the leftovers of Marston's Pedigree beer (an excellent beer) 
"I love you" Champagne special - I didn't like this, and neither did anyone else I tried it on.
"XO" extra old, mature Marmite, not noticeably different from the regular black stuff.
Note to collectors: don't come round here expecting to steal these. I bought them to eat, not as an investment. These are empty jars.

A coffee table book. Coffee tastes better with marmite and butter, on toast.
Marmite's own cheese products, as opposed to earlier variations where Marmite was marbled into third parties' own brand of cheddar. (Are you still awake?)

The leaflet was produced to give advice to pregnant women, pointing out the obvious health benefits of eating the scrapings from the bottom of the beer barrel. For diabetics, there is about 1 gram of carbs in a 5 gram portion of marmite.

 Marmite flavoured nuts, and not just any nuts, it's cashews.

Marmite have expanded their brand into many more snacks, and a further collection will be added to phase 2 of the Accrington museum.
To be honest, not my favourite cookbook. Some delightful artwork though.
 Marmite chocolate, and why not?

After all, chocolate is the second best food on the planet.
Metal marmite plate, giving a pleasing ting sound as the marmite on toast hits the enamel.
 No, it's not upside down.
This is squeezy marmite.
More expensive, and not the right texture.
Marmite should stand on the knife, not roll off.
And it should be served from a glass jar, not a plastic tube. Not recommended.
Someone saw a niche in the market,
and put out this (not very good) book.
The Marmite family totem pole. Who needs marmalade?

And here's the latest addition to Stanley Olorenshaw's collection; a set of four coasters sent to him by southern softie, Andrew Budd. He thinks he's getting them back, but he's wrong.

We love Marmite. But what about Burton-on-Trent? When I last visited Burton I couldn't believe that the "Welcome to Burton" sign didn't include "birthplace of Marmite".

Thank you for visiting Stanley's permanent collection of Marmite, please now click onto the planetfrank Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund page and pay your entrance fee. Imagine you have just left the Accrington Marmite Museum, and are now in the museum shop. You don't want a pencil with a rubber in the end, you don't want a postcard of Accrington town hall, you want to give to charity. Admission prices reminder: £1 adult, £2.50 family, £10 rich people.

You don't  pay, you never get to see the real museum open in Accrington. Have that on your conscience.
