The museum is housed in an old school building. There is a very impressive display of old toys, they will bring back memories for adults of all ages as there are toys from the 60s on displayed. There are areas where children can play with toys to help entertain them, adults will find a lot of wonderful memories contained within... More

We visited the museum on a Thursday afternoon, and we were very impressed with the displays and the interactive toys that kids can play with. The museum kept mom, dad and 3 year old twins entertained for quite a while. The kids loved the slot cars, the trains and the pinball machine. The old school is beautiful and was extremely... More

Much of my childhood seemed to be housed in this museum. From my brother's O-gauge train sets to my 3-foot tall bride doll, I revived some of my fondest childhood memories. Although most of the toys and games were up on high shelves or behind glass in cases, most rooms in the former schoohouse had actual toy items for little... More

Fun for all of us. It's a good time on a raining day. Set in an old school, this is a place to come and kill a couple hours. I don't know who enjoyed it more - my husband and I, or my 12 yr. old son. We all had a great time!

There were four generations of us visiting this wonderful museum yesterday and we all were quite impressed with it. The five adults all thought it was great and our little 3 year old grandson had a great time with all the hands one fun toys. We spent two hours there and could have spent much longer. We definitely would recommend... More

This museum is for all age groups. It is packed full of toys from every era. The train displays are impressive. Upon visiting the museum I thought we would only be there a brief amount of time. That brief amount of time turned into hours of laughs and memories.

We felt this was not worth the time nor the admission fee. Maybe we were expecting too much. This "museum" contains rooms of "organized" old stuff, much of it not in good condition, and most of it behind glass on constructed shelves. We have experienced much better train layouts with more realistic scenery. Save your money and time for the... More

Numerous toy and train collections, especially from years ago. It reminded me of when I was growing up in the 50's. Kids will love it.

This place is really nice! nothing fancy at all but nice for kids to do something different. our 2 year old LOVED this.. we had the whole place to ourselves. there were different rooms with different types of things for him to check out and play with. Very nice place to go on a cold day. just didn't like that... More
