Stopped in and visited. Was a little of cool facts about zippo/case lighters. Didn't realize Sales Were Over 500 million. Interesting museum that only takes less then an hour to go through. Lots of nice lighters, knives and apparel to buy

The hubby and I came here today. This museum has an amazing collection! Honestly I loved it all, especially where we could see all the reasons why people have sent back their lighters! Some made me giggle.

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!
