The Toy and Action Figure Museum

Explore the world's only museum devoted solely to the art and collection of action figures.

The only official museum of its kind in the world, the Toy and Action Figure Museum holds over 13,000 separate action figures, many which, in true collector fashion, have never been taken out of their packages.

The museum is partitioned off into different sections including a collection of cartoon artwork from famous Oklahoma illustrators and a room known as the "Batcave" that features nothing but Batman-related figures and collectables. The museum. The main attraction of the museum is the sprawling central diorama which features thousands of figures from every imaginable franchise, posed in a phantasmagoric riot of licensed plastic. Spider-Man swings past a hanging X-Wing fighter while Psycho Man makes an entrance onto a Peewee's Playhouse play set. The net effect is a joyous sense of childish play.

This Obscura Day, celebrate the bright, wild world of action figures with a guided tour of the Toy and Action Figure Museum lead by the museum's founder, local toy designer Kevin Stark. In addition to sharing highlights from the collection, Stark will talk about his experience as a toy designer and showcase some of his own creations.
