I'm a lover of antiques with a particular affinity for old toys so you can imagine the delight at finding the Kidd Toy Museum. It did not disappoint...what a collection! We spent about 1.5 hours there (Although I typically take my time in museums so...More

Definitely worth the visit. The location is a bit difficult to find and parking was a challenge but well worth it once inside. The collection of tin toys is great, although some of them may be considered racist by today's standards, they show a part...More

This an excellent collection of toys as they were for past generations and the best display of mechanical banks we have seen. They also have the most elegant peddle car a kid of those days could imagine. Sure, some items are degrading to blacks, but...More

If you live in portland go see this. But you dont need to take your small children. Its Kidd's museum not a "Kid's" museum. And you need not worry, dear politically correct friend. Nothing is politically incorrect about the toys here since our current social...More
