Set against a backdrop of abandoned oil derricks and some old, empty houses sits this modern museum. It's a great tribute to a little piece of familiarity known worldwide. The admission free museum holds movie clips we've all seen with Zippo lighters in them, history of the lighter, and beautiful designs used through the years. The staff was very accomodating... More

There is a remarkable amount of history in this museum between Case and Zippo. A definite walk through time. And the Hollywood movie clips are pretty cool too. You just thought you knew all of the famous Zippo scenes...lol

I have been to the ZAC Museum many times and the staff has always been wonderful! I took my daughter there for the first time this past summer and she loved being able to watch the workers, watching the balls in the ZAC machine, finding pictures with which she was familiar in the AMAZING multi-room display of lighters from all...

This facility is really a world-class museum, and don't let the word 'museum' scare you away. It is not a "boring" history lesson. It is a little history, a little fun, and some great products all mixed together. If you are a movie buff, you will love the review of movies that includes a Zippo lighter. If you are Case... More

The Zippo Case museum is a cool place to check out. I took the kids on a Saturday morning just to take a look around. There were many items on display from an American flag made out of Zippo's to a Zippo that saved a soldiers life. The display of different Case knifes were also very interesting. They even have...

The museum is very informative on both the Zippo lighter and the Case knives. There is a major wall that has histories of both Zippo and Case as well as other world and US events such as the first automobile, the invention of the radio, and of course the various wars. There are separate rooms for all stages of development,... More

Living in this area, I have visited this museum many times, especially when we have out of town guests. Recently remodeled - it is now better than ever. There is so much to see while there. Don't miss the intro video which offers good background info on how the Zippo came to be. Also interesting is all the history on... More

We always stop at the Zippo/Case Museum anytime we are going thru Bradford. During the week, you can watch the technicians work in the repair shop. Extensive collection of Case knives, many of which you can purchase. Great gift shop. The kids will enjoy the "ball drop" exhibit.

Located at 1932 Zippo Drive in Bradford, PA, this museum has thousands of examples of Zippo lighters. There is a short film you can watch at the beginning and then you walk around and learn their history. I didn't know they were used widely by the military. They have a display of an American flag that is made up of... More
