You will not believe the assortment of shakers in this place. It does cost a few dollars to get in but it is worth it if you like to look at salt and pepper shakers. Very different.

This little stop is a little spot. It's someones personal collection and boy does she have a lot. The shakers are all in categories behind glass. You walk through and you can see anything and everything. It takes maybe 10 minutes to go through but how many times can you say you've been to a salt and pepper shaker museum?... More

Some things in life, you cannot imagine. You might imagine that there are 20,000 different kinds of tables, or plates, or forks in this world. But 20,000 salt and pepper shakers? Who knew? This is a journey into one woman's obsession (she is now deceased, and her son oversees the museum and gift shop). If you ever wondered whether there... More

This was an awesome way to spend a cold winter morning. There are so many different salt and peppers to view!! I was amazed how many there were!! And it is nice that if you buy a souveiner you get $3 taken of, which is the price of admission. My grandmother passed her collection on to me and I had... More

This wonderful little museum is a sweet little step into the history of our world's kitchens. Who would have thought that salt and pepper shakers could say so much about our cultures. What a nice little stop this was.

We visited on a cold, rainy day. The close quarters were cozy. This was a special treat for Mom because she is a collector of shakers, herself. The entire family enjoyed the museum and were encouraged to take photos. We may return for a second glance when the weather improves.

We stopped in on a rainy morning to visit this museum. Be aware that the museum is somewhat relaxed regarding their operating hours. On this particular morning they were about 20 minutes late opening. It was worth the wait to be reminded of the salt and pepper shakers from my grandmother's collection when I was a child.

Cool personal collection. Only asks for $3 pp but you get it back if you buy some hard to find salt and pepper shakers from the gift shop .
