The Ham Museum

The Parma Ham Museum is located in the completely restored ex Foro Boario complex, a splendid example of rural architecture from 1928.

Langhirano is an oasis of peace, characterized by a mild climate and pure air, with charming vineyards and the extraordinary Torrechiara castle rising majestically nearby on a hill, with its imposing ramparts and its fifteenth century settlement.

There are eight themed sections, which feature photographs, historical documents, machinery and audio-visual projections, that range from the territory itself to the breeds of pig that determine the quality of the products, to salt and its historical and political roles as a foodstuff, to the pork-butcher and his timeworn customs, the numerous cold cuts in the traditions of Parma and the city’s extraordinary gastronomic richness, the processing of ham and the role of the Parma Ham Consortium in safeguarding quality.
