ZIPPO Lighter + CASE Knife Museum
The World Famous Zippo Light and Case Knife Museum!

One of the coolest places you will ever visit in PA! This is the home of the famous and valuable ZIPPO lighters! Visit this museum and take a look around at the nice blade collection as well! This is a destination event as you will need some time to take it all in and then the short 20 min (each way) drive from the Bradford PA Airport to the ZIPPO Center!

The cost: FREE! Great for pilots on a budget or who want to do some shopping for lighters and knives!

Mike Marra, Keystone Flight of Central PA

Background:

Bradford, Pennsylvania is home to not just to Zippo lighters and Case knives, but also to a commitment to the craft and quality synonymous with "Made in America." We invite you to visit the Zippo/Case Museum, where fans and collectors from across the globe gather to experience the rich history of these two American icons. 

Come explore the 15,000 square foot attraction that includes the world famous Zippo repair Clinic and Zippo/Case flagship store. Fourteen custom-made Zippo street lighters line the drive leading up to the building. Over the entrance towers a 40-foot Zippo lighter with pulsating neon flame and an enormous Case Canoe three-blade pocketknife. Enjoy a self-guided tour to learn the rich history of two American icons.
