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!

What a wonderful distraction from the insanity of Gatlinburg's main strip. This cute collection reflects a lifetime of work and the passion of an unusual obsession fused with a kitschy tourist attraction. Great work!

When we arrived there was a note on the door with a phone number to call so we could enter. Just another piece of the unique experience. We called and while we were waiting (about 5 minutes) more people came. We explained that we had called so they waited too. By the time the 5 minutes was up there were... More

When we arrived, we were told it was too close to closing time (2 p.m.??) and we could not come in. The woman at the door was quite unfriendly, and definitely discouraged any further desire to visit. There... More

I am a sucker for quirky roadside attractions like this. More than 20,000 salt and pepper shakers - but we didn't try to count them. Only $3 admission and you can apply that to the cost of a set to take home (cheapest sets available are about $12.95). They got some shakers that run up over $50...What would you pay... More

A trip down memory lane. So many shakers, both to look at and to buy. The lady who worked there was very friendly. I highly recommend this place.

Neat place. Admission is only $3 and you can use that towards a purchase of a salt and pepper shaker at the end. The variety and scope (20,000+ S&P shakers) of the collection is a sight to behold. Fun way to spend 30-45 minutes.
