While preparing for a visit to KC by perusing this website, my husband stumbled across info about the Toy and Miniature Museum. And, we are glad he did! What an impressive collection of antique toys and miniatures--it rivals something that might be found in the Smithsonian! Everything is beautifully displayed and the rooms are expertly planned out! Oh my, what a collection of quality minatures!
