The museum got its start in 2000 during a citywide process called VISION 2010. In a series of meetings, local citizens came together and identified goals they would like the community to reach in the next ten years. Many things were discussed. Among them the town wanted unique attractions that would help to make Pauls Valley a destination city.Work out when and for how long to visit Toy and Action Figure Museum and other Pauls Valley attractions using our handy Pauls Valley trip planner.
With the help of local artist and toy designer (and collector) Kevin Stark, a board was formed to start working on the world’ s first museum devoted to the art and sculpting of action figures! The museum acquired its 501(c)3 nonprofit status and the group began researching and creating the plans for a first – class facility in the heart of downtown Pauls Valley. It took the group five years to put everything together and the doors opened on October 15, 2005.
Since that time the museum has had visitors from every state in the union and over 40 foreign countries and has helped serve as an economic catalyst for the downtown area. With group tours from state wide public and private schools, senior citizen groups and various tourist groups, not to mention curious travelers, the museum has seen over 50,000 visitors since it opened its doors.
An accredited museum, The Toy & Action Figure Museum has won several awards, including the Redbud Award for Best New Tourist Attraction in the state for 2006 at the Oklahoma Governor’ s Conference on Tourism.

A definite little gem of a find! Any little boy or girl or adult who played with toys as a child would love this place. Especially any comic book fan. Immediately you are taken back in time to being a child and enjoying so much time playing with all of these toys. The detail given to placing each action figure and toy through this little museum is amazing. We will definitely bring friends and family who come from out of town to this spot!
We enjoyed the variety of the displays! It is very clean and organized. Although we were not traveling with kids this time the play and dress up area looked like it would be fun for littles and give them a chance to touch things as the displays are only to look at.
