Build your own kazoo here at this wonderful little museum, gift shop and factory. For a small price you get a great tour, small movie and tour of how the kazoo is built. It truly brought a smile to my lips! Located in an industrial park on the edge of tow it was a little hard to find but truly... More

Great fun and very informative!! Melody greeted us and showed us over to the museum section. After that we saw a cute video.

There were five of... More

We were greeted by Melody who told us about the tour ($5.00 which includes a souvenir kazoo at the end). We toured the museum portion of the store, viewed a film and got an insider look at the set up, assembly, imprinting and packaging area of the building. While kazoos are made outside of Beaufort, you really get a good... More

We went to the kazoo factory today! As expected the kazoo is a basic noise maker and there isn't a whole lot that goes in to making one but it did prove to be an entertaining and fun experience. Plus you get to leave with a kazoo that you make yourself -- which lets be honest, leads to endless hours... More
