Be sure to notice the Zippo lighter lights in the parking lot. This is a self guided tour of Zippo and Case. Interesting tour of their history. The area where you can view the repair center is not all that great. The workers are too far away to see what they are working on. Store to make purchases available.

Had a lot of information as well as a lot of unique lighters and knives on display. Got to see the repair shop and how lighters are engraved and painted. Purchased my own lighter and it works like a champ. Thanks!

Such a cool and informative museum! Didn't realize Zippo lighters have been around as long as they have. An American icon! Also, the Zippo store staff were the nicest people!! They helped us with our Zippo troubles and showed us how to change the flint. Thanks Zippo!! Worth the stop!!

The zippo shop was great. There is so much history in this store. I loved it. It shows that american made items take care of our military for years and years. The letters were so interesting. This would be a great place for children to learn about history. Thanks for being a great place.

You never knew there was so much history behind something as simple as a pocket lighter or knife. Hundreds if not thousands of examples from over the years in the museum and the largest display of knives and lighters and other products made under the Zippo brand for sale. One visit and it's easy to become a collector since there... More

A must for the Zippo collector or tourist to the area. The museum carries you through the history of this lighter and you can even have your damaged lighter repaired there as you wait. The surrounding area is beautiful and worth a trip there in the fall to see the fall colors.

Thank you for visiting the Zippo/Case Museum and surrounding area too. Bradford is the gateway to the beautiful Allegeny National Forest and right now our hills are just a beautiful green! Please do come back in the fall, it will be breathtaking. There is a beautiful view right from the Museum too. Thanks for taking the time to review our... More
