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!

Not sure where all these positive reviews are coming from. Found this place very tacky and dingy. The employee that was working was incredibly unfriendly. This is a 10 minute experience where you are looking at a bunch of weird themed salt and pepper shakers....More

Seriously though, so many complaints are on the entry fee being $3. That is by far the lowest entry fee you are going to pay on your vacation, and it's such an awesome collection (the curator and her family also lost their house in the...More

Stopped by here after driving past a few times. Such a cute, fun collection. And only $3 for admission, which can be applied toward any gift shop purchase. This can take as long or as quick as you'd like!

Wow!!! Everyone seems to know someone who collects salt and pepper shakers! This collection brings back memories and is very impressive. 3 dollars to enter but it goes towards your purchase in the gift shop.

Cheap and quick stop, fun on a rainy day. The tour is quick maybe 10-15 minutes and it is a cute little place. A must see while vacationing in the Mountains.

This is a small museum but the man running the place was very nice. One of the most unique things to go see in Gatlinburg. We took our children and the shakers were all behind glass so we had no problems with our children touching...More
