Nice free museum about the history of Zippo Lighters and Case Knives. Not huge but lots of cool mementos (love the military section!) and a nice gift shop that was reasonably priced. My boyfriend got a zippo lighter that was comparable to buying it elsewhere and I bought a nice long sleeved shirt on sale for $15. They had lots... More

This is in a small town that has nothing else going on on a Sunday but Hubby and I were thankful they were open until 4pm so we could stop and stretch our legs after being in the car for hours. The museum is beautiful. everything in there is shiny and new. This museum is so well kept and cared... More

Fascinating museum up near the Pennsylvania and New York borders. The huge American flag made up of hundreds of zippo lighters is very cool. Since every zippo comes with a lifetime guarantee, you can see the workshop where they are repaired daily. There's a collection of some various ones that have been sent back over the years. These include ones... More

Even if you are not a smoker the Zippo / Case Museum is a fascinating destination. Zippo merged with Case XX a number of years back so in the store at the museum you are able to purchase many different knives or lighters along with other paraphernalia made by Zippo. The museum is a great walk through American and Zippo... More

Quirky fun museum to visit with excellent exhibits. I never knew there were so many types of Zippo lighters. It is well set up and interesting. Loved the Zippo car out front.

Zippo Lighters and Case knives are two of the things that Bradford, PA can claim as its own and crow about. Both enterprises (now part of one large company) were founded eons ago on this very distant part of Northwestern PA. This museum and company store are quite the testament to how high on the Bradford ladder these companies reside.... More
