Owner description: 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!

We were on vacation in Gatlinburg and my parents wanted to visit the S&P Museum (they like antiques), so our whole family made the trip. We were glad we went - it was a lot of fun looking at the thousands of S&P shakers. Who ever would have thought there were so many varieties of S&P shakers?!!! I would also like to know who would want S&P shakers that look like toilets?:-) Very peculiar, but we all got a chuckle out of them. My 4 year-old daughter wasn't thrilled about the idea of going - but we ended up making up a S&P shaker scavenger hunt, so she had fun too. It was worth the $3 to be immersed by this cool collection for a short while:-)

This was a last minute decision to visit. So glad we did. Only $3 to get in and that goes towards the price of a salt and pepper shaker set from the gift shop. It was easy to find, the owner was very pleasant and informative. My kids (ages 9, 14, 19) were complaining they didn't want to go but enjoyed themselves once there. It is very interesting to see so many shakers all in one place and so many different kinds, materials, newer, older. I found it fascinating! I would highly recommend this. It's inexpensive and fun. Didn't take up much time, self guided tour. Shaker set I purchased was $13.00 but with the $3.00 off it was only $10. Cute little trinket to remember our trip there.

This Extensive Collection Is Nicely Displayed In Enclosures Which Is A Comfort With Children Knowing No Accidental Damage Can Occur. Highly Recommend Visiting. Well Worth $3 Admission (Which You Get Credit If You Buy Something). Kids12 And Under Are Free.

We were skeptical about the museum but we were walking by so we decided to stop in. The owner and her son were there and the museum started as her personal collection. The collection is great and the gift shop has some nice selections for souvenirs.

If you are in gatlinburg and have a little extra time on your hands then this is the place to spend it. It is amazing that one person has collected so many pairs of salt and pepper shakers.
