Toytopia satisfies the curiosity of toy lovers with beautiful, compelling, fun, and informative displays, and offers an immersive experience in which to explore the history of toy making. This family-oriented exhibition invites children of all ages to engage in play with some of the world’s most iconic toys.
Guests will learn about the evolution of toys throughout the 20th century, witness a giant K-NEX FERRIS WHEEL, and discover a variety of unique interactives, from working ARCADE GAMES from the 1970s and 80s to a life-size DOLLHOUSE. Photo opportunities abound with both the world’s largest ETCH A SKETCH and a life-size MONOPOLY CAR token to snap a selfie in. Participatory experiences include a GIANT PIANO KEYBOARD you can play with your feet and TOY TRAINS you activate with the press of a button.
Guests will also discover why some toys succeeded and some failed, and which toys have become collector’s items and why. They will learn about the origins of toys, who made them, and why they are so fun and so dear to us.
All of this and much more will be on display to delight guests both young and old!
