In a series of meetings, local citizens came together and identified goals they would like the community to reach in the next ten years. Many things were discussed. Among them the town wanted unique attractions that would help to make Pauls Valley a destination city.With the help of local artist and toy designer (and collector) Kevin Stark, a board was formed to start working on the world’ s first museum devoted to the art and sculpting of action figures! The museum acquired its 501(c)3 nonprofit status and the group began researching and creating the plans for a first – class facility in the heart of downtown Pauls Valley. It took the group five years to put everything together and the doors opened on October 15, 2005.Since that time the museum has had visitors from every state in the union and over 40 foreign countries and has helped serve as an economic catalyst for the downtown area. With group tours from state wide public and private schools, senior citizen groups and various tourist groups, not to mention curious travelers, the museum has seen over 50,000 visitors since it opened its doors.An accredited museum, The Toy & Action Figure Museum has won several awards, including the Redbud Award for Best New Tourist Attraction in the state for 2006 at the Oklahoma Governor’ s Conference on Tourism. « less

This was a very resonable price stop and brought back many memories for me and my husband. my daughter loved it too and even saw somethings that she has back home. the bedroom part is incrediable and is a must see stop if you have a short time or long time it is all up to you.

We stopped to surprise the kids thinking it would be a quick and quirky visit to some dusty old room somewhere. Turned out to be a fantastic, well put together museum for all types of toys and action figures. We spent an hour there but could have stayed for the afternoon. It was Heaven for our 11 year old boy... More

It was very cool place. We wished the toys at dates on them to see how old they were. Most of the stuff seemed fairly recent. We stopped in without our 5 boys but we will be making a trip back to bring them.

My son is a Marvel collector and I was looking for a road trip, so we headed down to this little main street museum. It is very well put together- and quite impressive. Any collector should have this on their must-visit list. You can do the whole museum in an hour, but if you want to look at every single... More

My boyfriend and his sister had been completely obsessed with this place and would talk about it constantly since they moved to Pauls Valley. When I went to visit, they INSISTED that we go there. At first, it was very cute. I loved the little shopping area, it catered to many different people. But then I entered the actual museum... More

I visited with two boys, ages 12 and 14. The WWII displays for European & Pacific Theaters of Operations were quite impressive. There was a hands-on play area with costumes. Signs advising you to be a superhero and pick up your toys and hang up your costumes were a nice touch. The Superman display covered both the comic book characters... More

As someone who grew up collecting toys in the 1980s, I was really excited about this museum. Some collections were great... Batman, Marvel and DC characters, TMNT and the huge World War II display. The Star Wars collection was lacking. The 1980s 6 inch GI Joes, Masters of the Universe and Transformers were non-existent. The displays had little info about... More

It is exactly what it says - a toy and action figure museum. Mostly actions figures and so possibly more for the boys but a good trip down memory lane for lots of us big kids. In particular there was a great display of GI Joes (Action Men if you are from the UK) and a wide selection of star... More

Takes you back to by gone days and makes you wish you had saved all those toys when you had them. Well presented and arranged. The displays change so another trip to view more may be in order.
