The collection consists of more than 20,000 Salt and Pepper Shakers from all over the world. A labor of love of collecting for more than 30 years. See the amazing variety of animals, vegetables, people and other colorful shapes, and the creativity of all the artists that created them. Great fun for all ages!

Museum is very interesting. 20,000 sets of shakers gathered over 35 years started by owners mother. Daughter and wife loved it. Left with a nice set (extremely reasonable pricing) for ourselves. Owner is a super guy. Would recommend to anyone visiting.

We had a great time! It was something fun to do that was different and interesting . There were so many cute things to look at that you could spend all day looking at all the shakers !!

Our lodge was very near this. We had a rainy day so we walked over. It is a huge collection of food, folk and pop culture. You will find memories in this place.

Too bad there wasn't more information here about the woman that collected all these salt and pepper shakers. I guess she has another museum in Spain. My husband's Mother has a small collection and it was fun to see the same ones here on display.

Not sure where all these positive reviews are coming from. Found this place very tacky and dingy. The employee that was working was incredibly unfriendly. This is a 10 minute experience where you are looking at a bunch of weird themed salt and pepper shakers....More

I cannot praise this museum enough. Admission, free as a bird, allows visitors access to countless collectibles. The section dedicated to salt and pepper shakers from around the globe had to have been a personal favorite. Take your time and cherish this unique place. Thanks...More

Seriously though, so many complaints are on the entry fee being $3. That is by far the lowest entry fee you are going to pay on your vacation, and it's such an awesome collection (the curator and her family also lost their house in the...More

Stopped by here after driving past a few times. Such a cute, fun collection. And only $3 for admission, which can be applied toward any gift shop purchase. This can take as long or as quick as you'd like!

Wow!!! Everyone seems to know someone who collects salt and pepper shakers! This collection brings back memories and is very impressive. 3 dollars to enter but it goes towards your purchase in the gift shop.

We have 2 kids, a 2 and a 7 year old. Everything is safely behind glass. The kids enjoyed picking out animals, vegetables, and characters from tv shows they've seen. We loved this! With the kids' short attention spans, to have an affordable and shorter...More
