The collection consists of more than 20,000 Salt and Pepper Shakers from all over the world. A labor of love of collecting for more than 30 years. See the amazing variety of animals, vegetables, people and other colorful shapes, and the creativity of all the artists that created them. Great fun for all ages!

We have stopped here numerous times at different times of the day and this place is never open. It sounds interesting and it's an easy stop with plenty of parking, but we have never seen cars parked here.

I know, sounds crazy to visit a museum dedicated to salt and pepper shakers. However, it was quite interesting. My teenage daughter absolutely loved it - snapping pictures left and right. It's really an art museum unlike any that you have ever been to before.

Our family of four visited this quirky museum. I say that in a good way. We all really enjoyed it. The teenagers toured the museum much quicker than my husband and me, but that's expected. There were so many different salt and pepper shakers. In the beginning, I thought I would look at every single one. I had to stop!... More

My husband and I visited this museum in March of 2014. We're glad we did. The owner was very nice and I think it was only a couple dollars.

Our family of 5 really liked this cute little museum. Only $3 a person, and our youngest was free (under 12). SO MANY amazing, different salt and pepper shakers. What a fun memory for our family!!! The owner was such a nice guy. The kids were excited to put our push pin on the map; we'll be back!

Neat little find in Gatlinburg! This little nook is operated by a man whose mother collected shakers for over 30 years. I can't imagine where she stored these as her collection started because they take up quite a bit of space!!! The entry fee was inexpensive, children under 12 are free, and you get $3 off if you purchase a... More

A beautiful museum, with a nice and generous proprietor. Over 20,000 unique salt and pepper shakers from all over the world. Its like nothing you have ever seen! Plus your entire admission goes towards a purchase in the gift shop. A must see attraction. Something you won't see anywhere else!

This was amusing and quick. Not thrilling but interesting in a way that there are so many different takes on salt and pepper. Would appeal likely only to older campers. The staff was friendly and informative.
