This toy museum was huge, with an enormous selection. The only thing I didn't really see there was a batman/Superman display. My grandson and I loved the motorcycles, army soldiers and the semi trucks. If you're in Spencer don't miss this gem!

I have been collecting dolls my whole life. We enjoyed the visit and it was very worth the $5 admission. A bigger gift shop would have been great. I would have bought a magnet and other memorabilia. Also, there was so much to see in...More

The lady was super nice!!! BUT this place isn't really a museum more like somebody's collection of dolls and toys that just got out of hand. They did have some toys to play with but it really wasn't worth my 45min drive just to play...More

My daughter and friends enjoyed their tea time. The museum is filled with interesting dolls. I like the shirley temple collection best. For tourists, this is a quick 30 minutes stop. You can follow-up with the Transportation Museum across the street (walking distance).

The museum and the displays are first rate, like you'd expect in a large city. Instead, it's a small town (lovely town), friendly, unhurried folks, with a wonderful gem of a museum.

Really, I expected something totally different. I felt ripped off and contemplated asking for a refund. The place is boring. I witnessed the owner lady yelling at several different children for standing to close to a display. I mean if your kid is looking the...More
