A small but interesting museum showcasing Zippo lighters and Case knives, their products and history of the companies. The difficult part comes when you try to narrow down what you want from their store, so many excellent products to choose from.

Sorry, l have no idea of its worth. Maybe contact Zippo directly. They may know or know where to direct you to who can determine its worth.

Hi Debbie. You may bring your Yorkie inside the museum if you would like, as we are pet friendly! All we ask is that you leash and/or hold your dog during your visit. Thank you, and we look forward to your visit!
