Toys of the Future exhibit at Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum

toys of the future collection on display at Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum

The Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum will have a new exhibit on display through the end of the year. Toys of the Future is the stellar and widely celebrated Goldbarth Collection of 20th century “space toys.”

The exhibit will open with a special reception Saturday afternoon, September 22, 2018, from 1-5 p.m. Admission to the museum is FREE for this special opening.

Here’s more information about the exhibit:

During the 20th century, when the future presented itself as a force to be reckoned with, toys took on the challenge; there is no finer example of this than “space toys,” the rockets, saucers, robots and ray guns introduced to children during the 1930s and beyond – the era of Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, and other gravity-defying, planet hopping heroes. Space themed toys have been universally enjoyed by children around the globe.

The exhibit is made possible in part through the support of Sean & Melissa Conley, Tom & Myra Devlin, Ron O’Callaghan and Scott & Betsy Redler as well as media sponsors: The Wichita Eagle, KSNW – Channel 3, and KMUW radio. The Museum is grateful for their support of this special exhibit and its related programs.

Toys of the Future is a great companion exhibit to Exploration Place’s newest exhibit, Toytopia, and a fun thing to do with the kids over the holidays!

Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum is open six days a week, and admission is quite affordable. This is one of our family’s favorite museums.
