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!

Very interesting collection! Well organized and well kept. Really needs a public restroom especially since your paying to enter the museum.

This is an interesting museum, to say the least. Well, it's not exactly a museum. More like a collection of Salt and Pepper Shakers, but it is an attraction in Gatlinburg that is lesser known. It is however, very unique and original. As a museum,...More

Went today with my dad and husband. We really enjoyed our visit. I thought it was so cool how such mundane things can be shakers. Ended up buying 3 sets. Completely worth $3 if you like this kind of thing.

A fun way to spend 30-45 minutes. Thousands of salt and pepper shakers in the museum. Organized into categories: veggies, transportation, foreign, fancy, silly, etc. Saw lots of older ones which brought back fond memories of times gone by. Nice gift shop too, with a...More
