The Case /Zippo outlet is also a museum and showplace for all that is Zippo and Case. We make the trip once a year to feed my collection of Case knives. There is a walk through "factory" tour. It's more a show place of the repair center, but it's still pretty cool to see. They have an extensive display area... More

The Vippo Museum was very interesting. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The exhibits unique and often historically based. I truly enjoyed this venue and suggest a quick visit when you are in Bradford.

Stopped in and visited. Was a little of cool facts about zippo/case lighters. Didn't realize Sales Were Over 500 million. Interesting museum that only takes less then an hour to go through. Lots of nice lighters, knives and apparel to buy

The hubby and I came here today. This museum has an amazing collection! Honestly I loved it all, especially where we could see all the reasons why people have sent back their lighters! Some made me giggle.

This was a great stop in Bradford. The museum is free and attached to the Zippo lighter and Case Knife store. There is a little movie about how Zippo was founded, exhibits explaining the history of Zippo and some wonderful displays of the different lighters through the ages. One of the Zippo presentations shows what happened to the lighter after... More

We found about this place by accident and it was very good. Got 3 new lighters and learned about the Zippo history.

I'd once been given a gorgeous pink zippo candle lighter and never thought I'd see (or care to see) where it was made! We happened upon a sign to the Zippo/Case Museum in Bradford and decided to stop. What fun! We're glad we did! The museum was a delightful mix of history and technology. As we wandered through, many memories... More

Thismuseum is fabulous. Very informative and welllaidout displays. We did not realize that Case knives were also made here and on display. A wonderful story and a great ethic makes Zippo an American icon success story. The store is also quite interesting to see, even if youdon't buy anything.

We were driving down from New York and saw the signs for this museum. I've never had a Zippo lighter, but remember my dad's, with its distinctive click while opening or closing. We stopped in for a tour of the museum and enjoyed it. Brought back memories from the old advertisements and of how common these lighters were when I... More

Nicely put together. There's only so much you can do in a museum dedicated to a single item (or two in this case, although the Zippo lighters are focal point) but this place is very absorbing for an hour or so.
