The Zippo/Case Museum isn't big, but it has a lot of interesting information and exhibits. You see the role that Zippo played in WW II and the movies and TV shows Zippo's appeared in through the decades. You can look in on the repair shop as they fix the lighters sent to them. You can also see a great display... More

If you like Zippo lighters this is the place for you. It is a small museum that offers the history of Zippo lighters and Case knives. I really loved the American and Canadian flags that were mad completely out of Zippo lighters.

This museum tells the story of the Zippo lighter. Great little museum and great store. It is hard to walk out of there without a Zippo lighter even if you don't smoke. Well worth the trip

Self-guided (and FREE) tour of the lighter and knife company museum. Lots of items on display, a great time line of not only Zippo/Case, But also history of Bradford, Pa. Interesting windows in to the repair shop allow you to see the repair team in action. Reminded me of a jewelers bench! Fantastic gift shop of pre made items, or... More

Who would have thought so many Zippo lighters had been manufactured! One lighter on display is their 500 millionth!!

Museum is relatively small, but displays an extensive collection of Zippo cases. Front of the museum serves as a gift shop selling all kinds of Zippo and Case products. If you are a knife or Zippo fan this is worth a stop.

The Zippo/Case Museum isn't huge but there's a lot packed into the building. Admission is free! It was a nice hour or so browsing through the lighters and knife displays, etc. The Zippo car is great. We took a few lighters up for minor repairs and since we're out of the area they were going to mail them to us... More

Nice free museum for Zippo lighters and Case knives. Good history on the lighters. Good store to buy lighters, knives, T shirts etc . found out that you can order a customized lighter for a reasonable price, either on line or at the museum
