As we were en route to Virginia, we stopped by this little place for a rest and to see this famous Zippo lighter and Case Museum. What an amazing place. First the museum is free...you can meander through and if fortunate during the week day, you can look inside the work area where they make, repair and send out the... More

Just a little place on our trip where we stopped. If you are a Zippo or Casr knife person, this is a must see. To see the history and learn about these was really fascinating. I purchased a few things to remember being there as well as taking many pictures. I would call this a museum of interest for people... More

Pleasantly surprised by how much there is to see and learn about 2 products. Great place to buy high quality cutlery and of course the best place in the world to buy a lighter with a lifetime guarantee.

Enjoyed browsing around looking at all the different types of Knives. Bought one for each of my guys at the shop. Also everytime I visit I get myself a new one. It's special buying a product that is made here in the Awesome USA!!!!!

We have a sis-in-law who is part of a dying breed. Smoker. We thought we would stop here on the way down to Hershey to pick up a gift for her. What a pleasant little surprise. I'm sure there are collectors out there who'ld be drooling at the exhibits. Who would have thought you could get a lighter with virtually... More

Doesn't get more iconic Americana than Zippo and Case. Great stories to tell and a nice little museum. Definitely worth stopping to see.

The history of Zippo and their famous lighters is showcased in this museum. I didn't think this could be an interesting subject..but it is! Very well done and nice shop too.

The Zippo/Case Museum isn't big, but it has a lot of interesting information and exhibits. You see the role that Zippo played in WW II and the movies and TV shows Zippo's appeared in through the decades. You can look in on the repair shop as they fix the lighters sent to them. You can also see a great display... More
