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

We were wandering the backroads of PA and got to Bradford about time to look for a motel. We found that Zippo lighters were made there and sought out the museum. We don't smoke. But Zippo like the Coke bottle or Airstream trailers is such an American icon. Quality and American. You have to love it and honor that history... More

Quite a nice museum and shop. Zippo repair center is in the same building so bring your broken lighter with you. Extensive Case knife collection. Two great American products!

This was my first visit to the Zippo Museum. I love a good American business success story, and the museum did not disappoint in that aspect. It is a vibrant, interesting museum that makes one proud to be an American. It was also neat to see the repair clinic in full swing. After a pleasant visit, I was excited to... More

The history of the Zippo lighter is very interesting and pretty cool too. The way it was made and is still today with quality in the USA what more could you ask for.

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.
