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!

We visited expecting something truly interesting. I guess for a shaker conoisour this would be a great stop. For me it was a large collection that I could see myself walking through at a normal pace with only a few places I felt the need to stop and ponder. The admission was cheap, but I can honestly say that I... More

Great little place! Tons of cool art and history in these thousands of salt and pepper shakers! I collect shakers so I knew I would enjoy it but was surprised when my husband took such an interest in the displays as well. The kids were not so thrilled, after the first room they were done.

Very expensive and overpriced, purchased shakers from the museum for 23.99 and found them down the street for 8.99 very disappointing

I couldn't believe how many salt and pepper shakers there were in here. Saw some we had growing up and a couple we have collected.

I am a collector of miniature salt and pepper shakers, so when I saw this on the Gatlinburg web site, I knew I had to go. Glad I did! It's the only one of this kind in the world! What a fun and amazing collection! Over 20, 000 pairs of shakers on display, all organized by category....animals, Americana, professions, vegetables,... More

Neat little place. Thousands of salt & pepper shakers on display. Huge collection of different selections. $3.00 admission can't be beat. You can buy a set of the ones on display at the end, you get your $3 admission taken off the price so it's like you walked thru for free. Here is my set I bought...

Stopped in the Salt and Pepper Museum while we were in Gatlinburg. It was a wonderful trip down memory lane! My mom used to collect salt and pepper shakers from all over, but she doesn't have this collection! I love seeing collections like this. It was very interesting, and I am sure that most people have no idea there are... More

Just had to see this place. Salt and pepper shakers and greeted by a sign saying this is a museum and they charge to visit... I turned around.

Such an interesting place! For a price of $3 a person you can't beat it. And at the end you can place a push pin in a map showing where you're from! Thought that was a neat touch!

I have to admit, as a European I mostly went there because it seemed so weird and American and funny and very fitting for touristy Gatlinburg. It was rainy and we went in as a joke...However, to my surprise, both me and my 12 y/o company enjoyed the museum very much. The owner is very personable and the collection is... More
