Because of new grand baby museum was closed but after a long drive with three kids the factory employees could not have been nicer. Did not let kids down, let them make their own kazoos. Let us in for tour.

The kazoo factory is definitely an "out of the box" kind of adventure that my family typically loves. However, the website did not make it clear that the factory only churned out kazoos on specific days. So while it was cool to read the history and see photos of how kazoos are made, I would have much preferred to see... More

you know you're in a special area when its prime attraction is so rudimentary an instrument but we've always enjoyed the kitsch of the gift shop as well as the eyewitness to the creation of kazoos... extraordinarily popular with "Red Hatters," who have adopted this joyful annoyance as their instrument of choice

What a treat! The lady who was running the gift shop today, also led the tour, and was so helpful, and shared so many interesting tidbits. Our party of 7 even had a few naysayers at the idea of seeing a "kazoo museum", but EVERYONE was won over. To see this machinery from over a century ago operating smoothly and... More

The factory runs just like it did 100 years ago and you can make one for $2.99. What a keepsake. But you better like the sound because you are going to hear it for miles and miles. I think the kids will remember this with fond memories. Glad we stopped.

This is a must if you are in the area. Extremely family friendly this museum has a see through glass to observe the instruments being made. There is a history in written form on the walls. There is no guided tour. The thing that makes it worthwhile is there is a machine to make your own. For a nominal fee... More

It is a great tour for kids. I took my students there many times. They were able to make their own kazoo and it really interesting to see all the different types and the history behind company and the products.

This place just makes you happy. The factory was in full swing when we got there, plus the wonderfully friendly and knowledgeable woman in charge of the gift shop was setting out chocolatey treats in honor of Mothers' Day and insisted we partake. Despite all she had to do, she happily took the time to help us make our own... More
