  • This place is amazing. Even if your not overly enthused about miniatures you still need to see this. The artistry and craftsmanship exhibited here is nothing short of exceptional. At the miniscule cost of entry this museum provides a look at not only awe inspiring constructions but also brings back memories of childhood no matter your age. There toy collection is probably one of the most laid out and amazing collections I've ever seen displayed. Everything, including the staff, was thoughtful and welcoming. I have the feeling my wife and I will make our way back many times to enjoy this hidden gem in Kansas City.
  • Absolutely incredible. Took my children, and we all loved it. We loved the miniature portion the best, as we love to make small things, but the old toys were really cool too. It's an awesome place and a must go for KC.
