Upcoming Exhibition

The Nostalgia Awakens
Vintage Star Wars™ Toy Display

January 24  - June 20, 2021

When Star Wars™ hit the movie theaters in 1977, it instantly became a box office smash, especially with children.  Kids wanted to bring the action home from the theater with them with their favorite heroes, villains, creatures, and spaceships in miniature size on the toy shelves.

Reservations required! Reserve and prepay for the date and time that works for you, allowing you easy check-in when you arrive and safety precautions for the ongoing pandemic.
