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!

I had no idea that there were so many salt and pepper shakers in the U.S. The imagination of whom ever decided to start a collection and them make it into a museum was great. I spent a pretty good time in there.

After driving by several times we stopped at the museum. Can you imagine over 20,000 sets of salt shakers? Neither could I. Well I can now! Seriously this is a really cool, interesting little stop you will never see anywhere else, ever. Don't get all the way home and wish you had gone.

My partner made of of me for wanting to go here, but secretly we were both fascinated. The awe of the collection size is amazing. Its something we keep talking about year after year when we reminisce about our trip. I could have stayed all day. A fun thing different from anything else you will do.

If you like Salt and Pepper Shakers then this is the place for you. There were over 30,000 sets in here and they all had a little home on the shelf. I did find however that it was hard to see some of them because they were placed behind another set on the self. Over all it was an interesting... More

Its an out of the way gem. I do not collect salt and pepper shakers but I am so glad I went and looked at theirs. This family has been collecting them for over 50 years and have over 20,000 pairs. Its only $3 each to walk through and see room after room and shelf after shelf after shelf of... More

This may not be for everyone; however, my wife and I really enjoyed it. She has a small collection and we both looked forward to visiting. We were not disappointed. They have a vast array of shakers and mills. Many are valuable, others quirky; most fascinating. There were many people during our visit and they appeared to enjoy it also.... More

A unique museum. I took my mom to visit this museum, since she is a salt and pepper shaker collector. My mom enjoyed looking at the different collections and actually saw a few that she had as well. However, would I pay to go here again? No, it is just salt and pepper shakers. I guess, had there been more... More

It's a cute little place and neat to see all the different shakers. My small daughter even kind of liked it. Only problem is they don't follow the hrs listed for being open and no one will answer the phone when you call.
