About
Take a trip down memory lane at this zany museum that has a collection of over 3,000 different metal lunch boxes from the 1951 Hopalong Cassidy model to 1970s favorites like Charlie's Angels and the rare 1980s E.T. box.

cost $5 to see lunch boxes. Over rated. It should be free. Seven older cars. Some furniture, but its in poor shape. The model airplane collection is free to see. I wonder if owner put his own place on trip advisor?????

A bit off the beaten path but fun. This place had my husband and I singing cartoon jingles all day. It isn't elaborate or posh by any means. The place was musty and had no air conditioning. But the attraction here is the nostalgia factor....More

Eh, I mean, I guess to each his own. But really, dude? Six bills to look at some cartoon tin boxes? It worries me that there is someone out there in the world planning a trip to Columbus to check this place out.

This "museum" was a bit of a disappointment. It certainly stirs up nostalgia for those 1950's 60's and 70's TV shows and movies but the presentation and setting was less than spectacular. The event is presented in the back room of an antiques warehouse so...More
