Stopped into this lovely factory while visiting Eden. A relaxing step back in time. We learned the history of the Kazoo, along with seeing the little pieces of metal get turned into instruments. The fact the factory employs disabled persons is a plus. Loved it!

The history of the kazoo was very interesting and the making of a kazoo was interesting!! I was surprised how unkempt the facility was and the owners (?) had a 'junk' shop in front of the factory. This facility employed developmentally delayed adults as factory workers so that was a redeeming grace. We loved the information and wished it had... More

Fun stop in the charming little town of Eden. The grandkids loved being able to make a kazoo themselves. My husband loved all the different machines. I liked the unusual kazoos. Everyone that visits the museum gets to put a pin on the map. All the pins and places will amaze you!

Eden is just south of Buffalo, NY and easy to get to. This factory and gift shop are interesting and also fun. We watched the kazoos being made and also put together one by hand. Some are made interesting shapes. The people are nice and friendly.

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
