Our tour guides will add a great deal to your overall experience, with a fun and interesting tour that is never the same twice, as we don't like "scripted" tours either! However, if you would prefer to view the museum at your own pace, a self-guided tour is ALWAYS permissible. Just let us know what YOU want, to make your museum visit the best that it can be!

Marx "Big Loo" Robot, 1963:
|Marx Disney Carry-All Dollhouse, 1972: |
Marx used their barn as the basis for this new type of dollhouse; although a regular version was also released, it is the Disney version which catches they eye of collectors.
|Marx large ride-on truck, late 1940's|
|Marx "Travelers" tank truck, 1966: |
This is the same truck that was used for the first Hess Oil truck offered through Hess gas stations in 1964. "Travelers Oil" trucks were only made for one year, and only a small number were produced. The company name was dropped and their stations becaume Hess stations the following year.
Do you have one?
|"Goldmarx" 6" high, hand painted soldiers, made and painted in Hong Kong. Predecessors to the successful Marx line of smaller "Warriors of the World."|
|Marx Big Wheel: |
Probably the most well known of all of the Marx toys, Big Wheels are still being made by a toy company called Empire to this day!.
|A Classic Erector Building Set from the fifties: Many a young engineer began his training on one of these!|
|Marx Riding Grasshopper: And you thought that the LOCUSTS were bad around here this year! |
Now be honest - wouldn't you ride it if no one was looking?
|You still can't beat those classic Marx tin lithographed toys! The Marx Merrymakers and Zippo the Climbing Monkey, both from the 1930's, can still fascinate the children of today.|
|Oh, and did we mention that we have a few toy trains around here, too?|
