We had Phil as our guide. Awesome informative information. He also was humourous. Place is small, not air conditioned. Had fans going to circulate air took 10 and 8 year old. Phil held their attention the whole time. Definetly should add to bucket list

Small but powerful. The 9 staff at American Whistle Corp make over a million whistles per year! Book the tour to get your reservation, $4 entrance fee, whistle at the end. Also seen in "how's it's made"
