  • We were very excited to visit the Marx Toy Museum. Its posted hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 11:00 until 5:00. We showed up at 1:15 on a Tuesday and the place was closed. No sign, no expla...  more »
  • This museum is now closed but glad I was able to visit. If you grew up with Marx toys as most of us did this was the place to visit. Big wheel, play sets, plastic figures, wind up toys they had it all...  more »
  • It was okay but if you are familiar with the older toys you would not be impressed. They just announced they will be closing the store for good this month.  more »

  • Really neat to see all of the old toys. Brings back a lot of memories. Staff was nice and friendly.
  • What an amazing place. A veritable trip down memory lane. Things you never knew, you never knew that came out of the world's largest toy manufacturer in Moundsville WV. Sadly after over 50 years in existence the museum closed its doors in 2016.
  • The building doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let that fool you! When we arrived, the owner was there, and he did a demonstration of some of the toys in his collection just for me and my kids! It was really neat to see how some of the older toys actually worked, whereas usually you only get to see them in cases. Then we were taken on a tour by a very knowledgeable and friendly lady who works there (whose name I unfortunately didn't catch). She told us a lot about the history of the company, and the back stories of certain play sets - lots of interesting things that we wouldn't have picked up if we had just wandered through the displays on our own. I was very impressed with the collection there, and also with the obvious love the staff had for Marx toys, and their dedication to sharing that love and knowledge with others. It was definitely worth the twenty minute drive from our hotel in Wheeling. Highly recommended!
  • Lots of cool old toys including the childhood toys of country super star Brad paisley who grew up near by
