The family decided to take an easy day after a couple of days hiking in the woods and came across this museum. It is a little sensory overload, visually, but a great stop to see some unique shakers.

A one-of-a-kind museum! Definitely worth the visit. Takes 30min or less, but an amazing collection! There are over 20,000 sets of salt and pepper shakers.

Someone spent a huge portion of her life collecting salt and pepper shakers. They're catalogued and on display here for the public to enjoy for a couple bucks. We went through in about an hour. Only one other couple passed through on our time there...More

Vast collection. Cheap tickets that you can use toward salt and pepper shakers if you decide to get some. Huge collection. I wish they had music. Maybe a little Salt and Peppa playing while you browse lol.

I loved visiting this wonderful unique museum. The owner was very nice and friendly. And, so much to see, it is amazing. I am awed that one person could collect such a large collection. It is well worth your time for a visit.

Arrived at 10:30am on a Sunday to a sign that said they were open Sundays from 12-4 and Monday to Saturday from 10-2, even though the site says open daily from 10-2. While we were figuring out new plans, other people came by similarly confused...More

Loved this place!! It is so well organized! The collection is absolutely amazing! It’s very nice that they give you the price of entrance off salt shakers you purchase. We bought black bear shakers!
