Looking for possible quirky things to do we decided to visit this quite delightful establishment. Set within an industrial estate once found it was a hoot. Our guide ERIN was a delight herself and conducted the tour of the installation wittily and engagingly. After a demonstration of various types of Kazoo (who knew there were more than one! ) and...

Ashley was our tour guide and we laughed joyously for an hour. Lots of fun and we built our own Kazoo.

Never had a kazoo, so was not sure what they were. Hubby and I decided to check it out. SO glad we did. We arrived and were greeted by Kanri. She explained about the short tour, the museum and we would get to "build" our own kazoo. Watched a short video about the kazoo and Kanri demonstrated different kazoo type... More

You can learn a great deal about Kazoos and leave with your own instrument. One of the few places in American making Kazoos.

We enjoyed our visit to the kazoo factory today even without the kids! Short tour that was conducted by a perky employee just for us! We even got to build our own kazoo at the end of the tour. Well worth the small entrance fee (paid at the end of the visit). This would be a great place to take... More

Erin was engaging and fun. She really connected with the child in our group. I never knew that there were so many attachments for kazoos

If you want to spend an hour smiling and laughing, make sure to include this tour on your trip to Beaufort. We were amazed at how much care and hand labor goes into the manufacture of this simple instrument. Ashley made the tour so much fun with her enthusiasm and the love of her job. Great for kids and the... More

The tour is a short walk through the factory where 5000 kazoos are made daily. Young children were given an opportunity to operate two of the machines. They were very enthusiastic and eager to try. A video presentation and live demonstration preceded the tour. At the conclusion, everyone was permitted to assemble their own kazoo, an easy task except for... More

Completely off the beaten path in Beaufort, this is a hidden gem of fun. I learned more about the kazoo than I even imagined there could be! Sara was exceptionally knowledgeable and a lot of fun as she guided us through the history of the kazoo, playing the multiple variations on the kazoo to show the differences in sound and... More
