I am 15 and I thought it was a nice little museum with a lot of cool shakers. It was kind of nice to have a cool down from the other things in Gatlinburg.

Looking for something different and unique to see while on vacation? Check this out! 20,000 plus salt and pepper shakers in one location. I never knew there were so many! They're artfully arranged behind glass (no kids breaking anything!) and you can see almost every single piece well. There was a section with a flickering fluorescent light that I hope... More

Spotted this little place while driving around town and the name caught our eye. Would have never though of visiting a Salt and Pepper Museum but very glad we decided to go inside. The museum is like a $3 charge per person and the gentleman running the museum told us the collection started with his mothers own collection. It has... More

I couldn't even count the number of shakers in one room there were so many! If you love lots of colors and small intricate designs, this is a good stop for you.

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!
