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!

Interesting and eclectic collection of salt and pepper shakers. Lots of themes that brought back memories of the past. Interesting collections of animals, political themes, royalty and farm related items too. Would love to see additional information about where more of the items came from and how and when they were obtained. My favourite item on display were the salt... More

Can't beat $3 a person to view over 20,000 different salt and pepper shakers from all time eras. It was something we had never done before and really enjoyed the walk through!

If you like knick knacks don't miss this place. It's a bit of a walk from downtown proper but an awesome collection.

Stopped on a whim with our group of 5, turned out to be a pot of fun and interesting. 2 of us even bought our own salt shakers in the gift store afterwards using our $3 entry fee toward the cost of the shakers. Highly recommended,

This is a very cool setup, only cost $3 to get in. There are thousands of different salt and pepper shakers, and the owner is interesting to talk to.

This is almost exhaustive in its capacity. There are so many items to view and review, it's nearly impossible to absorb the full extent of the collection in one viewing. We were nonetheless inspired to make a purchase, and it evokes the memory of the museum very clearly.

Apparently this was a private collection (and only a third of her collection at that). There are literally millions of pieces here and it's a great rainy day activity. I enjoyed looking at the variety of salt and pepper shakers. At the end of the museum tour there are shakers for sale (and you get a $3 discount on any... More

If your into miniatures or all things quirky this is the place for you. My kids and I loved it. Husband was a good sport. He even enjoyed reading some of the articles at the museum about its history. The curator was very friendly and proud of his mothers fabulous collection. The best $3 I've ever spent! To top it... More

We thought we would pop in here for a lark. The entry cost is minimal ( I think $2) and worth it. The gentleman who greeted us was extremely nice and had lots of history to share. This is a little hidden gem with so much to see. Who would have thought? One of those places you can add to... More
