Discover the highly prized artisanal art of the masters of Prosciutto di Parma! The museum of Prosciutto and cured meat products of Parma presents a path through history that allows the visitor to reconstruct the production process from the animal to the cured meat.

The Museum of Prosciutto and Cured Meat Products of Parma has its seat in Langhirano, home of the Parma Prosciutto, in the vast structure of the former cattle market. The choice of the cattle market as seat of the museum, placed as it is in an easily accessible area of town near the centre and the main historical ham curing plants, has permitted the functional rebirth of a structure firmly tied to the economic life of this territory.

The museum is organized into eight sections. Your tour begins with the territory, and a description of agriculture in the Parma region, before moving to the section dedicated to the pig breeds and to salt, telling the story of this important ingredient of food preservation. The fourth room is dedicated to butchery and exhibits, in addition to numerous historical documents on slaughtering over the centuries, plus a large collection of historical butchery tools. The remaining sections focus on other local meats from Parma, on local gastronomy, on ham processing techniques, on the territory, on food production, and on the Prosciutto Consortium of Parma, which guarantees the quality of this extraordinary product known and loved across the globe.
