Snap...Crackle....Pop! No, that's not your breakfast, that's the fascinating pop culture at Geppi's Entertainment Museum.
They are dedicated to telling the story of 250 years of American pop culture in an educational and entertaining way, where parents can be transported back to their favorite childhood memories, television shows, cartoons and film, and kids can be introduced to a whole new era of trends and cultures - some vastly different from the ones they know today, and some surprisingly similar!
Make sure you allow at least a couple of hours to see all 6,000 artefacts! Love comic books? You'll be in heaven! There are also dolls, toys, games, and memorabilia of every possible category you could think of!
Did you know pop culture dates all the way back to the 1700s? (That's a long time ago!) But you do now - and you can see how it has changed right through to what you know and love today, including the every loveable Mickey Mouse, iconic Barbie, super cool Spider-Man, the (almost) invincible Superman and the totally awesome G.I Joe!
Want to get hands-on? There are interactive kiosk for kids of all ages, including a super fun scavenger hunt, scattered throughout the whole museum so they can stop, play and get creative throughout the day!
Senior $ 9 Thurs is ½ price admission
Feel free to bring your camera! They want to ensure you keep your memories of their amazing collection for as long as you can! Also, allow at least two hours to get through everything at the museum.
A short walk from the lively and entertaining Inner Harbor, this fascinating museum is located between two light rail stops - Convention Center and Camden Yards. You will find them on the 2nd floor of Camden Station. There are stairs and an elevator on the south side entrance. The actual address is 301 W. Camden St, Baltimore, 21201
The museum is a great way to show students the connection American history has with pop culture of today, and how events of the past contribute to how we live and see the world now. It's a living classroom - and teachers are free!
Have you been good and saved all your pennies to buy yourself something nice and fun? Good! Because there is so much old and new pop culture memorabilia to take home! From Peanuts Monopoly to Tokidoki shirts - and don't even get us started on the comic books!
No problem! There is elevator access to the 2nd floor, as well as handicap accessible men and womens bathrooms. All galleries at the museum are wheelchair accessible, but unfortunately not every area is accessible as its a historic building.
