Costumed kazoos.

Kazoo Museum and Factory Tour

We really enjoyed this small museum featuring the history of kazoos. An interesting fact: the first kazoo made was called a Deep South Submarine. No one knows how they got their current name, Kazoo. They offer a tour that includes a short film, a demonstration of different kazoos and whistles, how they are made, and finally a chance to build your own kazoo. A 45-minute affair for $9 per person. They also have a gift store full of kazoos and accessories.

We loved it! The demonstration of all the kazoos, accessories and whistles was the best. And we got a souvenir kazoo! They sell lots of accessories and other instruments.

Electric kazoo.

Kazoo Museum and Factory Tour

One of the most fun roadside stops we've had with our young kids. The museum is free and consists of a few display cases of various types of kazoos from throughout history.

The factory tour is $5/person and starts with a couple of short, funny films about the history of kazoos. The tour guide then demonstrates a wide variety of kazoos (including the awesome Electric Kazoo), kazoo accessories, and other noise makers. Then you get taken in the back to see how the machines work for kazoo assembly and imprinting.

Lastly, you go through the process and assemble your very own kazoo to take home. It's not a fancy or elaborate set-up, but the folks there have fun with guests who are seeking a little interactive silliness while driving through this small town.
