Check out this link to see Time magazine‘s write up as the Toy and Action Figure Museum in Pauls Valley as a one of “50 Authentic American Experiences.”

Time writes: “The Toy & Action Figure Museum opened in 2005, and it has displays dedicated to all kinds of colorful plastic through history, including G.I. Joe, Transformers and other properties that Hollywood has unwisely decided to make into movies this year. Visitors will also find exhibits honoring local cartoonists, including Dick Tracy creator Chester Gould.”

If you have a chance, pop by the museum this weekend to see the debut of its latest exhibit, a room dedicated to the “GI Joe: Real American Hero” toy line.

The Toy & Action Figure Museum is located at 111 S. Chickasaw in Pauls Valley. General Admission is $6.
