The museum / retail shop was much better than I expected upon first impression. Always thought the Zippo type lighter was invented in U.S. - go for a visit and discover the true history.

We have gone here a few times and always enjoy ourselves. It doesn't take long and the history behind both zippos and case knives is explained. Many hands on displays, a short video , modern building and great people. Great way to spend the afternoon!

Was surprised how much they had here. Good even if you're not a zippo collector, great if you are. There's a gift shop on premises as well as 2 Zippo cars.

Sorry, l have no idea of its worth. Maybe contact Zippo directly. They may know or know where to direct you to who can determine its worth.

Hi Debbie. You may bring your Yorkie inside the museum if you would like, as we are pet friendly! All we ask is that you leash and/or hold your dog during your visit. Thank you, and we look forward to your visit!
