  • This place is a MUST. Allow plenty of time because no matter what you are expecting, you will get wrapped up in most of these collections and with the owners of the museum. They know every little piece in the museum and its history. I was not overly ambitious about giving this place a shot but then I didn't want to leave. Even if you aren't a collector, you will find things from your childhood and be overwhelmed with nostalgia!!! Jim and Nida are so incredibly friendly and we're happy to have met them!
  • "I came looking for copper but I found gold". That's how I can summarize my experience in one sentence. This museum is unique, very personal. What you see is only half of the experience. What you can find out about the items on display is equally (if not more) interesting. The owners spent their lives collecting different things, from military equipment to Barbie dolls. They are super friendly and once you're there, just ask them about anything. You'll not only hear a great story, but you'll also find a sense of joy coming from doing things you love, together. The owners are a couple married for 59 years (I write it in 2019) and collecting is something they enjoy since the day one. Truly inspiring! The collections are highly diversified and everyone will find something they enjoy. Last but not least, there's a store with collectible items the owners personally bought. I absolutely loved it as I found things I wouldn't be able to find anywhere else. I only wish I had brought more cash with me :). I think I spent almost 3 hours in the museum (some of it even after official closing hours, but the owners were so polite they didn't even mention it) and I'd really love to visit it again and discover more stories. PS. If there are any journalists out there: this is an awesome case for a documentary!
