It was a fun little side trip. We love to see the different and unusual. Kids were amazed that it takes 18 steps to make a kazoo. They liked seeing the different machines that make them. It would have been better to see at least a little focus or displace of kazoos at you walk into the place, versus all... More

The birthplace of the kazoo and the only place where metal kazoos are made. Very interesting and the gift shop is wonderful, especially if you are looking for a unique gift.

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
