  • I had no idea of the history of the hammer and so many variations on a hammer. Great displays and information, never knew so much about a hammer until visiting this place. I highly recommend visiting this place if you have any appreciation of tools.
  • Over 2000 items on display! Fascinating history of the hammer. Also features in the Zillionaires Board Game
  • Definitely one of the coolest museums i’ve been to and it’s definitely one of the highlights of my alaskan cruise! who knew there was that many hammers
  • Well what can I say, with my last name, of course it gets 5 stars!!
  • Quirky place that has great exhibits.
