About this activity

Toys are a part of every child's life! Kids, even your parents used to play with toys when they were little (and yes, they were little ones!)

The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures was created to educate and inspire. Kids will be delighted, and adults can do on a trip down memory lane as the whole family walks around the collections filled with vintage toys and miniatures.

Today, is has the world's largest fine-scale miniature collection, which is pretty impressive! It also has the largest antique toy collection on public display in the entire USA. Get ready to be amazed!

The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures is 38 rooms of incredible artifacts, collections, and exhibits. 

Some of the events and exhibits are only there for a short period - up to a year - so make sure you check what's on, and put the dates in your diary so you don't miss out!

The events and exhibits always cover fascinating topics, from America's obsession to four-wheeled vehicles, to listening to experts discuss various topics, to even the history of toys within the world wars! So there is a great sense of learning about history too.

As you walk around, it's great for kids to see what kind of toys were played with in the past. We bet they are much more simple than all the technology they have today! It will give them a greater appreciation for what they have available to them today.

Toy fun, history fun, and a great collection waiting for you at the National Museum of Toys and Miniatures in Kansas City!
