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

The action figure museum is a nice little spot to pop into if you're on your way between Oklahoma and Dallas and want a break. If you're into figures, then there's certainly plenty to look at, otherwise it's a lot of the same sort of stuff that is only partially organised. The Marvel and DC cabinets were nice but there...

It was creative and fun spirited. Great price too! My kids and my husband had a blast in the Bat Cave themed section. It was really charming and a great suggestion from the lady in the gift shop at the zoo just down the road from there. It made our outing all the more perfect.

Had read about the super hero museum and decided to make it the last day of summer vacation trip for my Grandson. Very easy to find on Hwy 77 in Pauls Valley OK. I think they must have almost every action figure ever made plus a lot of toys, posters, comic books and kids stuff from the last 70 years.... More

This was a fun little museum for both little ones and big "kids". It was really neat to see toys from my childhood that I either had or wish that I had back then, along with lots of newer toys.

Stopped here on our way to Texas for vacation. Actually drove past it twice before we found it. It sits in a modest downtown building space, but really opens up once you step in! Every section has a focus on a specific genre or toy theme: Legos, Star Wars, Batman(all eras imaginable!), patriotic (fitting for Memorial Day weekend we were... More

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.
