Nice little museum and store to visit.

Nice little museum with great gifts to buy. We had a few extra half days and travelled to hear on way to the Beaches. Nice stop that keep the kids interested.

Dropped by there a few months ago, looking for a specific toy for my grandson. Hadn't been there for at least 30 years and was surprised to see it still open for business. Many of the shops have closed but the ones that remain are very quaint and the folks working there are veritable experts in their wares. Unfortunately, I... More

I used to love Hobby City, now most of the stores are closed. It is a shame,they used to have some of the most unique craft stores.

I would not recommend spending any time here it's run down and a total dump! It's over priced and most of the shops have gone out of business! Do not waist your time go somewhere fun like Disneyland or head to the beach!

Hobby city is on Beach Blvd. between Ball Rd.and Cerritos in Anaheim. We have gone there for many items pertaining to our hobbies. Hope it stays, at one time they were to tear it down. So far it is still in business

Where can you find such a great collection ? Well, sometimes at an antique doll sale you can find a few dolls but nothing like the collection here at the museum. Every grandmother owes iher daughter, granddaughter , great granddaughter a visit to this museum. How about the toys for her sons and grandsons ? an opportunity to share stories... More
