The museum/gift shop was quite lovely and a pleasure to browse in. Staff very friendly. There are signs directing tourists on how to get there but more are needed. I had to stop and ask someone along the way.

We went to the Zippo lighter museum as a lark!! We certainly enjoyed learning about the lighter and the legacy..WWII soldiers still talk about getting a lighter in their ration boxes.

Zippo lighters have a long, illustrious history which is described in detail here. Lots of lighters on display explaining how they are manufactured and their place in US history. They have a lifetime guarantee, but you'd be amazed at the condition some have been returned for repair/replacement. They've joined with Case which makes an assortment of knives - pocket style,...

Free admission, gift shop and museum related to the historical memorabilia of both companies - along with their current product lines. Several large rooms full of showcases left us wishing we could stay a little longer !!!
