Toy and Miniature Museum

One of my very first blog posts here was from October 2010 when Gabbie and I visited the Toy and Miniature Museum. Last week, we finally went back to visit again, this time also bringing Simon and Zachary with us. Simon was a little less interested than the others, but he liked the interactive parts, and everyone liked seeing toys that either we own or friends of ours own.

The center of the museum is comprised of a column sculpture of all kinds of toys and games.

We checked out the miniatures first.

Here, you can look at the miniatures in microscopes and with magnifying glasses.

There is currently an exhibit featuring ride-on cars, called Pedal To The Metal.
