Welcome to the world’s only Toy & Action Figure Museum. Located in Pauls Valley, this unique attraction showcases over 10,000 super heroes, arch villains, cult favorites and movie monster action figures. Batman and Superman are just two of the popular action heroes presented in huge, colorful displays. Joined by characters from Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and the Simpsons – these posable toys energize imaginations in kids of all ages.
The Action Figure Museum is the home of the Oklahoma Cartoonists Collection, an exceptional collection of works by published Oklahoma comic artists and writers such as Chester Gould of Dick Tracy fame, and Jack and Carole Bender of comic strip favorite Alley Oop, who is celebrating his 75th birthday at the museum on September 19th & 20th.
In addition, a behind-the-scenes tribute to talented designers, sculptors, and toy companies who take action figures from play things to works of art is the first of its kind.
Fun begins as guests are greeted at the front door by spindly legged ‘Geezer’ - the world’s first 79 year old superhero, created by Museum Curator Kevin Stark.
A recently completed military action figure display honors American veterans and their patriotic sacrifice by recreating both the Pacific and European campaigns of World War II.
But don’t worry kids, it’s definitely not all “please don’t touch”. There are several really cool interactive areas like the Super Room where you can dress up as your favorite super hero. Action City is filled with action figures to play with, and there’s even a Batmobile in Batman’s Cave.
Open Tuesday thru Saturday from 10am to 5pm and Sunday from 1pm to 5pm, the museum is 45 minutes south of OKC. Take Exit 72 off Interstate 35, drive east into Pauls Valley on Highway 19 and follow the signs.
This is an Oklahoma attraction that shouldn’t be missed - a wonderland of childhood memories. The collection of action figures, toys, and memorabilia is so extensive that there is always something new to experience, and each month brings another special event. For example, Hot Wheels Double Dog Dare Derby is held each May and Batman Day in July. This month there will be a visit from Mr. Puppet and Alley Oop’s Birthday Party is in September.
