My boyfriend and I walked in and I was so excited to buy a lighter that we stopped in the store before going into the museum. After about 15 mins browsing (with no one asking if we needed help but asking others) I made up my mind and went to the counter to ask for it. We waited at the... More

This was a very interesting place to go and see the history of the Zippo lighters. Even if you are not a smoker - it is a neat factory to go and see.

Visited especially to purchase a watch and flask non available only on line or in Vegas. Why do companies advertise items then not carry them. Museum very interesting and informative

Last week when our car broke down on our way to Washington we were stranded in Bradford, Pennsylvania for a few days. Everyone in town suggested a visit to the Zippo/Case Museum, It was a scorching day and I walked the mile there and back and was really glad that I did. Even though it was so hot and that... More

We were staying overnight in the area, and thought it would be fun to take a quick visit to the Zippo Museum. Best thing we did - it was GREAT! I was surprised at how busy it was, and how large it is. The exhibits are informative and interesting and we really enjoyed it. If you're in the area, well... More

Extremely well presented museum with a large gift shop. After a short visit here we know lots more about Zippo Lighters and Case knives because of the displays ( Elvis Presley zippos) and videos. We saw the repair shop for the lighters which have a life time warranty. The building front was in the shape of a lighter as well... More

Was blowing down 219 with my son coming from hockey tournament in Buffalo. Doubled back on a whim. Museum for Case Knives and Zippo lighters very interesting. Bought a lighter (Happy Father's Day). Staff extremely nice and helpful. Engraved right on the spot. Great Alice of Americana.

Much better than I expected. Nice lay out. Spent a lot more time here than I expected too. Gift shop on the expensive side.

There is no admission. The displays are first class. The story of the development of the lighter is very interesting. The flag made of lighters has to be seen in person to be truly appreciated.
