“The results of a lifetime of collecting”
Our museum houses the collection of Mr. Frank Kidd, a lifetime collector. The beginnings of his collection was in the field of vehicular toys, an interest fostered by his family's automotive parts business. The museum today is intermingled with that business. Since those earlier days, his interests have expanded to include toys of all kinds: mechanical and still banks, trains, planes and automobiles, character toys, police badges, railroad locks, lanterns and related items, and early Oregon memorabilia of all kinds. His collection has been supplemented by the collection his wife, Joyce, who collects teddy bears and dolls, and holiday collectibles. Today, the collection consists mainly of toys from the period encompassing 1869 to 1939, but includes a generous display of later die-cast vehicles. For local interest, banks, signs, trays, and other items pertaining to the Northwest are included.
Wow. This place really has something for everyone, and you could easily spend over an hour here without children. Definitely call before you go to make sure they're open.
