This museum claims to be the largest S&P shaker museum in the world. (I’m not sure I can imagine much competition in the condiment container community, but you never know.) What started as a simple collection turned into a 20,000+ set menagerie across 22 years be the museum’s curator. They have numerous categories that span the range of possibilities –... More

Googled "things to do in Pigeon Forge" & this popped up. So glad it did! Just a fun, quirky stop in a hurried life & vacation. I DEFINITELY recommend spending THREE DOLLARS & the 45 minutes to hour this takes. PLUS the $3 admission is taken off any purchase you make at the end of the visit! We bought the... More

I couldn't resist a stop here with my family. I'm not a salt and pepper shaker collector or anything. This is what I will say, for us it cost like $15 for 3 kids and two adults. Next time ill just let my hubby take the kids for ice cream if I want a look. My kids were in a... More

Everyone made fun when I said I was going to the salt and pepper shaker museum. Who wouldn't? I paid my $3 and entered. Once in this well air conditioned place made fore a nice break to the heat. I was taken back in the first room of salt and pepper shakers the next 4 ended up just overwhelming me.... More

We just loved seeing this museum on a well-deserved day off from hiking. We actually arrived when the owner was locking up, but she re-opened for us. There is a $3 fee but well worth it. It is quite the collection and definitely worth a stop. At the end of the self-guided tour, be sure to place your push pin... More

Best 6 bucks we spent on vacation! Free parking- quick access to this quirky place. Took three kids (9, 11, 13) and we were in and out in less than 20 minutes- but will never forget this little gem. Highly recommended- a funny stop worth taking! And holy cow, there are lots of shakers!

This little place has over 20,000 salt and pepper shakers which were collected by the mother of the fellow who runs the place. We saw the museum near our rental so stopped in to check it out. The massive collection is amazing, everything from animals to tv characters to the Beatles! You can walk through in 10-15 minutes or stay... More

Took the tour of the salt and pepper shaker museum. Worth the entry fee. Enjoyed it, almost bought the shakers of outhouses labeled full of p and full of s. Something off the main strip to enjoy.

We stopped in here because we knew about it from Trip Advisor and we were nearby. I found the collection interesting but how much can you really take in. Certain ones catch your eye and others you just don't notice. We tried to go slow but 30 mins or less is probably typical. We bought a set of salt &... More

My granny collected salt and pepper shakers. When I went to the museum it was so cool to see all the stuff and think my granny would have loved seeing all those shakers
