About
The museum got its start in 2000 during a citywide process called VISION 2010. 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.

I had seen the museum on TV and read about it in the newspaper but nothing compares to being there in person. It was impressive. They had more action figures than Walmart. They had huge displays of G.I. Joe, the Hulk, Simpsons and others. They had a big western TV show display that brought back lots of memories. The Oklahoma cartoonist hall of fame is also housed here, in a corner with a sizable collection of original art.

if your ever in the area, you need to stop by . the place has a good collection of all different kinds of action figures. it's fairly cheap for the experience. you could spend hours there just looking and reminiscing about how you had one of the many action figures. if you're a person that likes to take pictures, this is is the place for you. when we went, we went through the whole place twice and we still missed stuff.

We were touring both Texas and Oklahoma this summer. I found the toy and action figure museum on Trip Advisor. This place has tons of action figures and toys from years ago to current day. If you are ever in Oklahoma, you should stop in and see this place. Friendly, welcoming young people at the front desk who explained that the girl’s uncle was the one who assembled all the toys. It is such a great experience and your mind will be blown at how many toys and figures they have!!! I even found my faves…Rocky and Rambo. Great place!!!!!!

Met at the door by the main guy (set it up and owns the collectibles) Gave warm introduction and told of history of the museum and the items. Fascinating. Overwhelming collection, well put together. Definitely worth the time.

I came here to review this and am even more incensed when I read the admission prices. We were here on July 12 2016 and paid $31.02 for two seniors, two adults and one 13 year old ( adult admission I assume) and the two children were free (one infant one toddler) Does NOT add up from other's admission price in May of $4 per senior and $6 per adult. Perhaps the prices went up since then? hmm Anyhow, when we entered the museum, the person "in charge" quoted the admission fee after we asked only. It was myself and my husband (seniors) our adult daughter, her 18 year old daughter, her 13 yr old son and a toddler and an infant. And she said children under 12 were $5. As we were confirming how many adults, children etc ( going by her price quote and assuming the toddler and infant were $5 each because of what she told us) I said ok. so two seniors, 3 adults , 2 children. She accusingly reacted and said are YOU trying to tell me that the girl in the purple hair ( this was my 18 yr old granddaughter with a little light purple in her hair) is UNDER TWELVE! My husband said no.... and re-iterated how many of each.. she said OH the little ones are free.. which is not what she had previously said. I felt very insulted. My daughter picked out a couple of matchbox cars to purchase for her toddler and opened them so he could play. The lady then went through great lengths to let us know that we could not take them into the museum ... saying they might get "mixed up" with the other toys..essentially she was saying we might steal something. We co-operated and went into enjoy the museum.. the museum itself was pretty cool. That lady .. not so much. She followed us everywhere as if we were not to be trusted. We stayed awhile, enjoying the displays, my toddler grandson playing with the toys and older kids trying on costumes which were provided for just that purpose Every time we turned around the lady was standing watching us. We were not doing anything but enjoying ourselves and getting enjoyment out of what we as PAYING CUSTOMERS were entitled to.. Towards the end my daughter gave the toddler a small water cooler cone 1/2 full of water. Being two and a KID he accidentally spilled some on the floor. How did I know this? I was a couple of display over and heard HE SPILLED WATER ALLLLL OVER THE PLACE. Whereupon apparently she chastised my daughter for not WATCHING her child ( my daughter was getting a paper towel to clean up at this point Apparently she also told her to leave that room.I was on way there to do a video of the Batman display for another grandchild of mine when I heard all of this going on. I entered the Batman display area where the water was spilled.. very small amount but this lady was going through motions of clean up as if she were cleaning up after a flood. I started to do a small video and was told I needed to leave as SOMEONE spilled water and if someone fell they could get sued. Again a half a water cooler cone of water, and this was JUST A LITTLE KID. Horrible horrible treatment, and we rushed out of there NOT SPENDING anymore. We were going to drop at least another $100 in the gift shop... Very insulted

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 there). This place was well put together by people with a true, honest passion for action heroes and toys that celebrate sitcoms to blockbuster movies to comic books!
Any kid or "kid at heart" will be thoroughly pleased with this place! Some areas appear very "helter skelter" and chaotic, but once you focus on a section at a time it becomes even more enjoyable!

Really enjoyed our trip to this museum. They had so many toys, action figures and collectibles. Kids and adults will enjoy this place. You could browse for 30 minutes or hours. Very impressive stop and unexpected treat for this small town. Highly recommend making a stop here if you are in the area!

We had so much fun in the museum. Kids of all ages were smiling and remembering they had one of these . They had everything from toy story to lost in space . You have to look up , over down. There is stuff everywhere. While visiting check out Fields pies just down the road. Yum

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. It was long memory lane for me and a not so long memory lane for my Grandson. Plenty of Saturday morning TV from the '50s and a lot of history about comic books and newspaper comics. A wonderful place to spend a few hours remembering being a kid or being a kid. Highly recommended for grandparents and their buddies.

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.
