Toy and Miniature Museum
This is a must-see for the young and young at heart. Located near the Country Club Plaza on the University of Missouri-Kansas City campus, this museum features a collection of antique toys, built-to-scale miniatures, antique dolls, doll houses, farm toys and teaching kitchens. They recently added a new room to feature the worlds most complete marble collection, donated by Larry and Cathy Runyan-Svacina. The museum was founded in 1982 by two women who wanted to share their toy collections with the general public. Adults will especially enjoy the miniature displays, which fascinate and inspire. Admission: $6 adults, $5 seniors and students, $4 children (5-12).
Like I said this is a must. If you miss childhood or have children of your own this is one not to be missed. I am a 22 year old male and I enjoyed this exhibt. Granted there are not as much things for boys to look at and enjoy but I will venture to say that they will not be bored. I liked the diversity of the things that they had on display. The staff was very smart and you could have a conversation with them. If and when I have kids this will be one of our favorite destinations.
The craftmanship of the miniatures is increadable. Children of all ages will be impressed by this exhibit. Plan on spending atleast two hours to take in the amazing displays.
Staff is extremely knowledgable on the exhibit as well.
If you love antique dolls, doll houses, antique toys and fantastic miniatures this is the place to visit! I would recommend it to those age 5 years and up. There are 28 rooms so do plan ahead, because it does take time to see it all. They ought to come up with a 2 day pass (for a little more money) because it's hard to absorb it all in one visit.
This musem is fun if you like cermic clons becase they are EVEYWHERE!!! The also have dimly lit doll house and you feel like evey thing is going to come alive! Very Feaky! P.S A "Hunted House" is Next to it.
