What a delightful stop! We love the story and the history of the town, and this family owned business. Wonderful exhibits of Zippo and Case through the years and their commitment to quality has made these products an American icon. We loved it.

Hi Debbie. You may bring your Yorkie inside the museum if you would like, as we are pet friendly! All we ask is that you leash and/or hold your dog during your visit. Thank you, and we look forward to your visit!
