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!

Think you have a lot of S&P shakers? You haven't seen anything. This small museum is a real fun diversion on a rainy day or if the legs are just not up to a longer trek.

I went here to get a salt and pepper shaker for my sister (she collects/thinks their cute). It is $3 a person to walk through the museum, but that is a small price to see one woman's life long collection. They also take off $3 for each salt and pepper set you buy at the end. I bought two so... More

Walked in and saw it was really a Salt n Pepper Shaker museum. I thought I walked into a weird dimension or something when I realized there was someone talking to me. The gentleman behind the counter was saying "Welcome" but was also shaking me down for 3$. Thought I was dreaming at first. Would someone really pay to see... More

This little shop is kind of in an out of the way area. If we had not been staying at the Brookside resort we would have never known about it. It is quaint but man does it have some interesting salt and pepper shakers. I even purchased my wife one.

And I'm glad we finally did! $3 to get in, but worth it. 20,000 salt and pepper shakers on display is pretty amazing. This is quite a collection! Very interesting museum. You gotta see it at least once!

We took our 2.5 year old to the museum. All of us enjoyed walking around and admiring the 20,000+ salt and pepper shakers. My son was entertained the entire time. We enjoyed the short walk from our hotel and the price of $3 was very reasonable. The $3 admission to the museum went towards the purchase of our new Joe... More

Wasn't expecting much. Had mid 20 year old kids with us and a 2 and a half year old boy. The smallest had a blast. He was so excited. As were we. Amazing. The selection was out of this world. The only negative was they were not all for sale. There were plenty to choose from and we did. They... More

Well worth the $3 and the 20 minutes to see 20,000 salt and pepper shakers and to see how it is arranged. Where else are you going to see a museum to Salt and Pepper Shakers ----- well she does have one in Spain so this is much closer.

We found the Salt & Pepper Shaker Museum in Gatlinburg, TN to be a wonderful place to visit. There is plenty of room to park and it's located very close to downtown Gatlinburg. The admission is only $3 and that amount can be applied back to any purchase in the small gift shop at the end of the tour of... More
