The proprietor Frank is a super cool guy that loves to talk about the collection, A lot of neat 60's to 90's toys packed into an average mall rental space. Nice layout and displayed well. Well worth the price of admission, When we get up that way again I'll be sure to stop by.

We went to the Salem Toy Museum yesterday and it was a BLAST! First you must realize this is not a huge museum...however it is packed with vintage toys. Upon entering I was immediately transported back to my childhood. HRpufnstuf, Velvet and Chrissy, McDonalds toys, EZ bake oven, Lidsville....I could go on and on. The owner was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and made our visit so much fun. If you love seeing the toys of your childhood....you will LOVE this place! Go and enjoy.....

I first went to the toy museum in July I believe, and have gone 2x more since then. There are always news toys being added!!!!! The gift shop has very cool items. It is a bargain at 6$ to check it out. Look high- Look Low- look anywhere in between there are toys and games and dolls hanging allover the place. The proprietor Frank is a super cool guy to talk toys with.

After reading the reviews we had to definitely check out the museum. Although some comments felt that it was small, we actually found that this museum was a perfect size. Frank was gracious enough to join us and reminisce about the toys themselves. Made us want to go home and search for old relics. Definitely worth the price of admission.
