After nearly a year and a half of renovations, you’ll want to see the reopened museum and its antique toys and fine-scale miniatures in all new exhibits.

Explore interactive exhibits and check out a mega toy sculpture featuring donated toys.

The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures opened in 1982 as the Toy and Miniature Museum of Kansas City.  Located in a building on the corner of 52nd and Oak on the University of Missouri – Kansas City campus, the 7,000-square-foot museum had two full-time staff members.

Over the next thirty years  the museum grew to 33,000 square feet. The collection increased to over 72,000 objects.

On August 1, 2015, the museum will reopen as The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures with the world’s largest fine-scale miniature collection and one of the nation’s largest antique toy collections on public display.

The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures
5235 Oak St.  Kansas City, MO
10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
