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 !!!

We were given directions that took us to the back parking lot and I later learned we missed seeing the fourteen custom-made Zippo street light(er)s out front, but we did see the fun Zippo lighter car parked in back. I'm a non-smoker history buff, and in my opinion, the Zippo lighter has its own place in history and the exhibits... More

This company is just amazing. So is their visitor center, museum and of course their legendary lighters. I had to buy a lighter even though I'm not a smoker - you just have to buy a lighter while in Bradford! It was pretty tough to find but we made it and it worthed it. If you are going by, do... More

Always a highlight of our Northern Pa trips. We were surprised to see some big changes to the center on this trip. Still, we spent close to 2 hours exploring. We all enjoyed watching the repair area. This was a weekday visit vs. previous weekend visits and we had never gotten to see repair work being done before. That was... More

From the outdoor lamp posts that look like giant Zippo lighters to the enormous American flag made of Zippos inside, this was a great stop. I work in a museum and I was totally impressed with the information and displays -- beautifully done, informative. Such an amazing history! A boggling selection of Zippo lighters and Case knives for sale.

The museum had an interesting collection of Trapper Knives collected by a gentleman and willed to the Museum after his death. Interesting stop on our journey across PA.

Zippo is the best friend The City of Bradford has ever had. They employ 700-800 people and have tremendous benefit for them. They support the community. Their museum is a treasure to our community. A MUST SEE WHEN IN BRADFORD PA!!

The place is cool. It really is. From the destroyed lighters, to the Rube Goldberg contraption to entertain the "kids"...it really is a well done place. My stay is kinda tempered by the fact that "their servers crashed and they couldn't sell anything".....I had cash, they had pen and paper. Doesn't seem like rocket science to me. Other than that,...
