Mr. Ed's has always been a treat. A local landmark and place of all things elephant and quirky. The old school candies and homemade fudge are incredible. They provide a unique experience that continues outside the store as well, with walking paths and gardens that are fun and whimsical. I think I've been going there since about 1979 or so... More

We enjoyed our visit to Mr. Ed's Elephant Museum to find some unique candies and novelty gifts. It brought back some childhood memories with the "older" candies they have available for sale. They also carry some unique novelty items for sale that the kids had never seen or heard of before! Got our hubbies t-shirts with one of the funniest... More

We didn't spend much time in the museum because the rest of the place was so interesting. Took forever to choose from all the candies, nostalgic and otherwise. Don't miss the talking elephant out front.

I've been to Mister Ed's 3 times. Each time has been very enjoyable. The elephant collection is large & unique. If you're looking for candy of just about all types, Mister Ed's is the place for you. Their fudge is awesome! They have so many choices it's a hard decision what to take home. If you're into Pez, Mister Ed's... More

We stumbled upon this place, after leaving Gettysburg. You can't miss it, because of the giant elephants and various sculptures that decorate the grounds. That alone, is fun to walk around, and explore. Inside, there's a free museum, displaying thousands of different elephants - really incredible to take in. The rest of the shop has a variety of old time... More

Went with friends. Absolutely loved all the elephants! !!Amazing! Worth stopping if only to see the 1000's of elephants! Outdoor Holiday decorations were fun too!

Mister Ed's is definitely unique in its own right. A massive candy shop adorned with elephant memorabilia is something that's hard to miss. They're a small ground to walk around outside and a small museum collection in the back. The amazing selection of sweets of all kinds makes this a stop with making.

Fun for adults and kids alike. Lots of elephants inside and out - fun, kitschy, what you'd expect from a place like this. Lots of candies, peanuts and fudge available for purchase. Even some hard to find sodas like Moxie. Worth a stop if in the area.
