Branson has some unusual attractions, one of which is the World’s Largest Toy Museum. The depository is a two-building complex that contains over a million toys that date anywhere from the 1800s to modern times.
A special part of the museum complex is the Paul Harvey Museum, an area dedicated to the popular newscaster whose radio broadcasts aired from the 1950s to the early 2000s. Paul Harvey Jr. has put it together, and it is a replica of his family’s 1950s home, containing many of their toys and personal items.
In other parts of the attraction, you’ll see board games, pop guns and GI Joe action figures as well as toy trains and tractors. It also has an amazing collection of Star Trek and Star Wars memorabilia along with Barbie dolls, windups and planes.
Every member of the family will enjoy a visit here. For children, it may seem like the ultimate fantasy. However, for adults it will be a trip down memory lane, as it has toys that represent heroes and performers from the past such as Shirley Temple and Groucho Marx.
The tours are self-guided, so you may stay as long as you desire. Hours are from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday through Saturday. Admission is $15 for ages 7 to 17 and $17 for ages 18 and older. The address is 3609 W 76 Country Boulevard. It is open through December 31.
