Worth $3

The admission price to get in is very reasonable. The collection is amazing and you can see different shakers from all over the world. There are no restrooms here. This is a great family event. The admission fee can be used towards a purchase in the gift shop as well. It’s small, but very interesting to see.

Interesting museum

This was a fun place! Admission was only $3 and we spent about 45 minutes inside. It was really interesting seeing all the salt and pepper shakers from all over the world and from different decades. It was definitely a nice little place to stop and visit.

Very Interesting

Very interesting to see so many different works of art in the design of the salt and pepper shakers. The woman that collected these traveled all over the world to collect them. Only $5 each to get in.

Great Experience, One and Done.

This place is great. Everything advertised is correct. There are more salt and pepper shakers than you can imagine. I do wish the gift shop had more choices to buy, as I felt the diversity of items was limited too. The price of the shakers were extremely high also.

Very rude
May 2021
The place is full of salt & pepper shakers. The guy working the register was not the owner and he was rude. We were there to make a donation and he wasn't helpful.

Get the experience and go just because you can say you went.Cheap and enjoyable... Unbelievable all the variety and types. It is a museum of discovery!
Would be a fun scavenger hunt.

Needed more benches or seats to suit and look at the thousands!!!

Hidden gem!

I didn’t even know this was a thing but so glad I found this place! We arrived just past closing time, however the owner was very accommodating and allowed us entry. The collection is absolutely phenomenal! The museum also has a gift shop so you can buy your own set. Well with the $3 entry, and it is applied to your purchase at the gift shop. If you like museums, do not miss out on the unique experience! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Nice Stop - Unique
Apr 2021
Very unique place to visit. There are such a variety of salt and pepper shakers - some of them I remember from my childhood. We wondered how long it took to get them all organized.

Unique collection.
Mar 2021
We've had this listed as a place we'd like to stop for year but never really took the time. We stopped on a Saturday afternoon with rain in the forecast and glad we did. The lady there was very sweet and seemed very knowledgeable about salt and pepper shakers. There was a $3 fee per person to get in however that is taken off the price of merchandise if you decide to purchase after the self guided tour. We spent about an hour here but could easily have spent longer. There were many shakers that I never realized existed and some that I remember my grandmother having. It is worth the time to stop by.

Enjoyed it very much

Everyone thought I was weird when I said I wanted to visit this place. Even I thought it was weird but it was so cool! There’s so many different shakers! I loved looking at all of them. I feel like I still missed some and would definitely be returning the next time we visit the area! I picked out my shakers in the end and love them! It’s worth the look and only $3!
