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!

My wife and I were wanting to come visit this museum. We could not find a day to visit during the beginning of our trip so we called on Wednesday to ask if they would be open on Thanksgiving and the man who answered the phone said they would from 10-2. We were elated and shocked and excited to go.... More

Well worth the $3 admission charge to see. Over 20,000 different salt and pepper shaker sets from all over the world and different eras. I spent over an hour looking at them all. Great selection of items to purchase after you visit the collection and your admission charge get credited towards your purchase.

UNBELIEVABLE! An amazing collection (and to learn the same person has another museum in Spain, I believe)! The self-guided tour affords you the opportunity to spend as much time as you like trying to take it all in. My wife collects, so it was a must stop for us. Be sure to check their hours when planning your visit.

$3 to see over 20,000 sets of salt and pepper shakers! We are not collectors but we still found this place very interesting.

I stopped by to shop. They charge $3 to go through the museum, which I didn't want to do as I was the only one in my family interested and didn't want to make them wait. When I asked if I could just come in to shop the store part, I was rudely told "No". I don't understand why they... More

Saw this listed on TripAdvisor and made sure to stop in on our trip. What an amazing collection! I am not a collector myself but found it all so interesting. They sets range from old to not so old, from traditional to unique one of a kind. I loved the nostalgia of it all. It invoked memories from simpler times.... More

This is a hidden gem in the Smokies. Cost $3 to view 20,000 sets of shakers. They are groups by colors, animals, people, etc behind glass in about 6-8 rooms. You can buy some before you leave and use your $3 coupon on each set you buy. You get to mark a map from where you are from.,Truly a fun... More

My husband and I are came up for vacation and stopped by the museum. We were so impressed. The museum is so charming, it's only $3 and I'm my opinion should charge a lot more! We spent a full hour - there's that many to see. How amazing!
