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

What a delightful little museum! Admission is only $3, and they will apply that amount to any purchase at the small gift shop at the end of the tour. Everyone in our party really enjoyed seeing the multiple rooms of salt and pepper shakers from all over the world. There is plentiful, free parking and this museum is right by... More

(Andorra, which I do not recommend by the way, is full of small cynical museums dedicated to objects that have no connection to Andorra.) But I digress. When I heard of this odd little museum, knew I had to see it. It was cute, quaint, quirky, sweet, folksy Americana at its most heart-warming.

You have to pay 3 dollars to go around and look and if you buy something you get the 3 dollars back. It's just salt and pepper shakers. I don't want to pay 3 dollars to look at salt and pepper shakers. They would probably do better business if more people could just come in and look around first.

I didn't actually go, but my mother did and she told me she was surprised how interesting it was. She said it was just a fun thing to do if you are over in that area.
