We went to the Museum of Salt & Pepper Shakers today in Gatlinburg, TN. I loved seeing all the shakers! Over 20,000 of them 😮😮😮 My wonderful brother-in-law bought me two sets and you know they had to be Halloween 🧟♂️🧟♂️🧟♂️ #saltandpeppershakers #zombies #halloweensaltandpeppershakers #gatlinburgtennessee #museumofsaltandpeppershakers #halloweeninjune #alwayshalloween #halloweengirl #keepinghalloweenalive #halloweeninmysoul #highhauntedmanor #halloween #halloweenisneverover #halloweenismyfavorite #halloweenallyear #ilovehalloween #halloweeneveryday #halloween365 #halloweenislife #spooky #spookyallyearlong #creepy #creepygirl #stayspooky
The museum, located in Winery Square, was kicked off 35 years ago by a family who initially just began collecting shakers.
According to the website itself, “One of the main purposes of the museum is to show the changes in a society that can be found represented in shakers. As you walk through the museum you can see the changes from ancient times to the 1500′s, 1800′s, 1920′s, 40′s, 60′s all the way to present time.”
The museum charges $3 for admission, which goes towards any shaker purchase. Learn more here.
