The World’s Largest Salt & Pepper Shaker Store Is Here In Tennessee And It’s Beyond Incredible
The world is chock full of salt and pepper shakers, some forgotten at the back of kitchen cabinets, others displayed proudly on tables and countertops. Here in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, the largest collection of salt and pepper shakers in the WORLD is on display. Sure, you may know east Tennessee for its mountains and waterfalls, but did you also know the flavor it brings to the collection world?
Gatlinburg, Tennessee is home to less than 5,000 residents, tucked away in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains. It's a lovely place to live and vacation, a tourist homing beacon and one of the best spots to experience in the United States.
It's in Gatlinburg that you'll find the Salt and Pepper Museum. Home to the largest salt and pepper collection in the world, you can experience it yourself for a mere $3, with children under the age of twelve granted free admission.
More than 200 folks a day make their way to the Salt & Pepper Shaker Museum, not only for the experience but due to its fabulous location right by the entrance of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It's an easy spot to fit into your busy vacation itinerary, and well worth it for the stories!
The shakers are presented on a series of shelves throughout the museum. It's fascinating, to see just how varied and creative salt and pepper shakers really are.
We take them for granted most of the time, but shaker design truly has come to represent different creative periods in history.
The walls in the museum are painted black (to highlight the shakers!) and boast directional arrows that will help you make the most of your visit.
Here you'll feast your eyes on over 20,000 full sets of salt and pepper shakers from around the world.
Have you been? Would you visit? Looks like Marty McFly has already beat you! You can visit every day of the week from 10am to 2pm, at 461 Brookside Village Way in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
