The Toy and Action Figure Museum – Paul’s Valley, Oklahoma
Located in the mild-mannered city of Paul’s Valley, Oklahoma, The Toy and Action Figure Museum celebrates the bright, wild world of action figures with a cacophonous collection of plastic characters.
Opened in 2005, the museum was actually started thanks to a program started by the city of Paul’s Valley. Nearly five years before the museum’s opening, the city of Paul’s Valley started an initiative called Vision 2010, the goal of which was to create attractions which would drive local tourism. To this end, local toy designer Kevin Stark began working on The Toy and Action Figure Museum that stands today. Stark was able to open the museum as a fully-accredited non-profit, thus making it the only official museum of its kind in the world.
