I'm a lover of antiques with a particular affinity for old toys so you can imagine the delight at finding the Kidd Toy Museum. It did not disappoint...what a collection! We spent about 1.5 hours there (Although I typically take my time in museums so...More

I am a small time bank collector. I was absolutely overwhelmed by this collection. Old time toys, dolls and antique Mickey Mouse!

Definitely worth the visit. The location is a bit difficult to find and parking was a challenge but well worth it once inside. The collection of tin toys is great, although some of them may be considered racist by today's standards, they show a part...More

If you live in portland go see this. But you dont need to take your small children. Its Kidd's museum not a "Kid's" museum. And you need not worry, dear politically correct friend. Nothing is politically incorrect about the toys here since our current social...More
