This place was a worthwhile detour: fun and educational. We learned and saw these metal, hand-made kazoos made on antique machinery for free. For $2.99 we made our own with a very patient, kind, and instructive lady. Terrific experience for young and all.

It was close to the thruway as we were road-tripping across New York State, so we had to stop. We learned a lot, saw them making kazoos on original pulley run machines and even made our own kazoos. The people are knowledgeable and friendly.

If you're close to Niagara Falls and you like random, quirky stops, don't miss this! They make honest-to-goodness metal kazoos right here, and you can see it happen. The factory is tiny with a giant kazoo on top of it, but we came in from...More
