Lots and lots of history and displays. Quite fun to see the displays and learn how some zippos were destroyed and replaced. My boys bought hats and I asked about an email coupon and we were given wonderful penny charms to represent the money never spent to replace to Zippo. Cute! Easy enough to find, worthy of a few pictures... More

This was a fun place to visit. Included a history of Zippo lighters through the years. Worth the visit. Leave 30 to 60 minutes to see it all.

Always carried a Zippo in my younger days and had to see the place while here. Very educational and entertaining. Not into knives so the Case part didn't interest me. Worth the visit just the same.

There are rich histories behind every Zippo lighter and Case knife, and you'll learn all about them in this interesting, interactive exhibit. Give this museum a try-- even if you think you won't like it. I guarantee that you'll be pleasantly surprised! For those wishing to take home a souvenir, a wide variety of merchandise is priced right and there... More

Members of our art club go on day trips. I chose Zippo. Called ahead and arranged for a guide. Shirley Evers, Archives Manager, conducted the tour herself. Most people wouldn't think art, with Zippo. It was a wonderful 2 hours. We couldn't believe the time went by so fast. Mrs. Evers was enthusiastic and knowledgeable, she and her husband, an... More

Yes, Zippo lighters and merchandise are made right here in my home town, Bradford PA. So many beautiful lighters and different items are on display at the Zippo Museum and the history of how it all began. Zippo's are on motion pictures and can be found all over the world. You won't be dissapointed when you visit Zippo! Stop in... More

Traveling through on the way to Niagra Falls and stopped at the Zippo Musuem and ended up spending an hour. Very interesting history of the Zippo lighter and Case knives. The museum was very done, lots of information and the importance of the lighter to our US troops throughout time. Recommend a visit.
