Childhood is the time when minds are formed and values are shaped. Our collection of toys spanning from the Victorian era onward reflect more than advances in technology or tastes; they capture our cultural evolution.
Timeless favorites such as dolls, dollhouses, trains, and cars connect families through generations of playful memories.
The Museum is also home to the Marble Games and Gallery Room, filled with the colors, shapes and sounds of approximately one million marbles! This extensive marble collection was donated to the Toy & Miniature Museum by Cathy and Larry Svacina, who were collectors for years and decided to combine their collections once married. This collection is now one of the largest, widest-ranging marble collections in the world.
Visitors can try their hand at the game in a real marble ring, or become mesmerized by colorful marbles looping and winding through the intricate marble maze stationed in the middle of the room.
