Description

As the only Kazoo manufacturing company in the United States, this one-story musical toy facility is also a museum with tours and a gift shop. Kids and adults have a chance to make their own kazoos, too. Educational and entertaining, this museum shows that there's more to the little plastic sound maker. Invented in 1883 by Warren Herbert Frost, a kazoo is shaped like a submarine that, when blown into, modifies a person's voice. It is both a professional device and one that can be played just for fun. Located in a plain warehouse, The Kazoo Factory museum has an extensive display of early designs, materials and historic pieces. A factory tour shows how a kazoo is made in different styles, sizes and colors. Parking is on-site. -Natasha Lawrence
