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,...

We enjoyed our visit to Zippo, it was educational, easy to access and best of all...it was free. I would recommend others to drop in if in the Bradford area.

We weren't expecting much when we came here. It's actually quite informative, not only about Zippo and Case, but also about local history as well. There is a short movie giving an overview of the two companies. And there are lots of display of knives and lighters, including rare and historical items. Kids (and even adults) will enjoy looking at... More
