Easy to get to just off the New York Thruway, the Kazoo Factory, Museum, & Gift Shop is a lot of fun. The folks that run it will enthusiastically tell you everything they know about the culture, manufacturing, and playing of the world's most popular "musical instrument". Make your own or just watch how they do it. In any event,... More

It was close to the thruway as we were road-tripping across New York State, so we had to stop. We learned a lot, saw them making kazoos on original pulley run machines and even made our own kazoos. The people are knowledgeable and friendly.

Located in Eden, N.Y., not far from Buffalo, this quaint metal kazoo factory is tucked away in the back of a gift shop (that contains numerous, and fine items besides kazoos). It is the only operating metal kazoo factory in North America. Free parking is located in the back of the store. Note, to enter the factory, you must go... More

Looking for something different to do. Stop by the Kazoo Factory. A cool place to visit where you can see kazoo production on antique machinery. You can even make your own Kazoo for a small cost. Gift shop has many items to check out also. A neat slice of Americana!

If you're close to Niagara Falls and you like random, quirky stops, don't miss this! They make honest-to-goodness metal kazoos right here, and you can see it happen. The factory is tiny with a giant kazoo on top of it, but we came in from the other direction and spotted the sign first. We were greeted by a very nice... More

The last place I expected to find a line to get in somewhere was the Kazoo Museum and factory, but I arrived a little early and there were people sitting on the deck and a few more walked up to the door as we all waited to see a place so fun and happy as a Kazoo factory. You can... More

This was a great way to break up a long car ride. Learning about how the kazoo is made, and seeing the alternative ways they are made was fascinating. My sons bought the trumpet kazoo.

If you are passing through on the New York Thruway, take an hour or so and venture into Eden to tour the Kazoo Factory and Museum. It's so convenient from the Eden-Angola exit, and less than 15 minutes off the highway. We guided ourselves, reading the boards and loved looking at all the old kazoos on display. We also chose...
