“A museum filled with Ups and Downs!”

National Yo Yo Contest and Museum has the largest public display of yo-yo’s and yo-yo memorabilia in the country, including “Big-Yo”, the 1982 Guinness Book of Worlds Records world’s largest working wood yo-yo weighing 256 lbs which is the scaled up replica of the very popular and innovative 3-in-1 No-Jive yo-yo by Tom Kuhn. The Museum features displays of yo-yos from the earliest commercial production in the 1920′s and 1930′s to the current performance designed yoyo’s used by top competitors today. A video display with current contest performances is ongoing, and docent tours can be arranged. Every Saturday the Museum offers yo-yo lessons (12noon to 2pm) that are free, and open to all level players.

I went here with my buddy recently while on vacation. Honestly, it was pretty underwhelming. It's at the backside of a toy store. There's lots of other fun stuff to do in Chico like visit Sierra Nevada brewery or go disc golfing.

I love quirky things I just had really hoped there would be more information about Yo-Yos and the history of it etc. it was more like someone's collection of yo-yos than anything else. I mean if you're in Chico, check it out but don't make a special trip for it. It's very tiny and in the back of another store. Still cool just not worth a specific trip unless you are REALLY into Yo-Yo's.
