REVIEWS OF Kruger Street Toy and Train Museum IN West Virginia

John Hower

Especially if you're 40 or older this place will take you back to your childhood Christmases and the toys Santa left under the tree. The museum is in an old school building, with 4 rooms of toys on each of its 2 floors. Brought back a lot of memories!

James Janidas

Neat museum. They have some pin ball machines setup that you can play. There is a house cat that roams the museum too. Friendly staff.

Thomas Kukulka

Marta Bueno

Mary Kuenzig

Much larger collection than we imagined! No handicap accessible really though... Each room has items you can play with, hands-on.... Some train displays needed repaired and we're not running that day... Some displays still being built... Well worth the $10 admission price though!

Rich Gar2

Awesome toy and train museum. Lots of fun stuff to do. Cheap Groupon deal. The cat is friendly there too and will follow you around. Stop by if you can!

momoeight mamabear

Awesome museum. If anyone in your party likes trains, you'll love this. If anyone likes cars, you'll love it. Like pinball? This is your place. How about knex? You got it. Slot cars? You know it. Lots of cool stuff to look at but even better, stuff to play with! Kids off all ages will have a great time. Highly recommend this as a stop unless you're just no fun at all.

GREAT PLACE TO GO TO.

William Greenan

Great Collection

Elena Smith

Fun to attend. I'd come back

Tom Wolf

What a diamond in the rough!! Toys, dolls, trains, etc. Was a real trip down memory lane. Even though there are fun interactive things for the little ones, this place is fabulous for adults. You have to see this place to believe it. Wonderful old school building.

Darin Wood

Good overall history of the toy world

William Duckworth

I hoped for better exhibits but it was still a great time. We'll worth the price of admission. I would have liked to have seen more Marx playsets and space and robot toys. The collection of individual Marx miniatures was very good. I was unaware of the existence of the spicy "American Beauties" series.

Jarrod Elliott

Great place to bring your kids (or if your nostalgic at all)

Brandon Mathess

Amazing place to spend an hour or two in the afternoon. So many fun things to see and do

Carrie Goodman

So much fun, great walk down Memory Lane. Areas for kids to play. Highly recommend

Mike Hans

Our son does enjoy it here. The staff is very friendly. I wish the Kinects room was finished it was 6 months between visits and it still wasn't finished. Also some of the train buttons were not functioning in the o gauge train room. Other than that it's a good place to visit.

Sharalee Eckley

quentin mccance

We liked it. Our grandson did too. Tons to look at and do.

Mike Christel

What nostalgia, looking back on decades of toy history! My wife loved the dolls room, I loved the Matchbox cars oom, and we both enjoyed pinball, board games, and other showcased treasures. You can get a caboose tour as well to top off a memorable visit!

Angela

This place is awesome! I was worried that this museum wouldn't be as much fun as my kids expected, but I ended up having a hard time convincing them to leave! The rooms downstairs have cases along the walls with a variety of vintage toys and games (which I found fascinating), and in the middle of each room was something interactive for the kids to do, which they loved! The Lego dump trucks were a favorite. We all loved playing the pinball machines in the main room, and the nickelodeon was neat to watch, too! Upstairs is trains and remote controlled cars. I loved how the trains were set up with a variety of buttons to push to make different things move, and the kids loved the dark room with the lighted amusement park rides. The staff there were very friendly and helpful. Oh, and brownie points for having chairs in each room so that parents could rest if the kids got really interested in playing with something. I don't think I've ever seen anyplace else offer that, and i definitely appreciated it! I would recommend this place to anyone!

Alyssa Nicole

Great place! Employees are very friendly. Though the real reason we all come is the kitty.

Robin Walker

Great toy museum

Audelia Borquez

(Translated by Google) Multiple rooms including a train room with moving lights and figures. Interesting to see the evolution of lis toys. (Original) Multiples salas incluyendo una sala de trenes con luces y figuras en movimiento. Interesante ver la evolucion de lis juguetes.

Jon

Great mix of exhibits, wonderfully done.

J.T. Alukonis

Our son is almost 2 years old and he loved every room. Great for nostalgic adults, too!

Kory Snyder

Everything was broken or out of order. Sure, it's great to see all the old toys, but at times I felt like I was in someone's attic. It is not worth $10. Very disappointing.

My 8 year old and I had a blast! The pinball machines were our favorite!

Donna Wolford

Keith Weaver

This place is a great treasure in a small town. Has an incredible amount of hands on and display items. Really enjoyed it and it’s worth the time to stop in

John Henne

Lots of fun, pinball machines, tons of old games and toys

Arthur Motch

Great toy museum.

Richard Goodall

An experience like no other -- there are a lot of hands on opportunities here -- we were two seniors looking at items we had when we were children -- many items we had for our children -- saw I think 4 or 5 different versions of Candyland -- the new boards a so cluttered compared to back in the day -- no wonder children today have attention and patience issues -- also had a good selection of items our parents played with -- can't imagine anything that was ever in someone's toy box that they didn't have at least one of -- there is a display of plastic Kinects that is worth the price of admission on it's own -- lived in Pittsburgh for almost 70 years and never heard of this place -- waiting anxiously for my granddaughters to visit so I can go with them and see it through their eyes

Niki Mastny

Coming here you are going to see lots of toys from your childhood, maybe your parents and kids childhood too! There are toys young kids can play with to keep them busy while you look around the exhibits around the edges of the rooms. The train exhibits have fun set ups to keep kids busy as well, like "can you find the 15 dinosaurs". They now have a cat here, Loo, named after the famous railroad cat, and pinball machines that you can play for free / donation. This place has a very interesting collection: trains, Lego trains, dolls, and miniatures. The earliest toys I saw were from the 50's, but I likely missed some. There is also some history about China and real trains. You could come here and spend hours. My favorite area was the kinex roller coasters set up as a miniature exhibit.

Scott Persinger

Great place to bring your kids. Hands on play in every room. Free play on the pinball machines. Great gift shop. The nicest Kinex display I have ever seen.

julieann roberson

I could spend all day here. Wish I lived closer so I could visit more often.

Chuck D

Fun to see the stuff from when you're a kid

Rushit Mehta

Amazing place!!! We will definitely come back. Try Groupon for tickets. They have really good deals online.

Erika Patterson

What a great way to spend the afternoon. We used a Groupon and it was only 5$ each. There are 10 different rooms to explore with a kids play area in each. There are also too many to count displays everywhere else. Look for Waldo, there are five or dinosaurs in the train room upstairs (I think there were 15). The gift shop is stocked and very well priced. You cannot go wrong with a visit.

Ana Senatro

Charming toy and train museum. Re-live your childhood in this entertaining place which is housed in an old school building.

James S

This place is really so extremely awesome. Plus a super friendly cat!

Kenneth Rudisill, III

So much more then we expected. Very friendly staff. So much to see. They even have little plastic step ups for kids to carry around and use to help them see the train displays. Nice touch. Well done.

Wanda Elliott

thomas Burner

Outstanding experience! Fun for all ages. We will definitely come back.

Cara Cornelius

Each room was packed with working models and each wall covered with display cases. Most of the rooms had toys for the kids to play with. We had a birthday party there and had a room to ourselves with admission to the museum too. All the kids loved it!! Highly recommended!!!

Jewell Tolson

Great stuff

David Mays

Definitely an interesting place to pay a visit if you're in the area. The old school building is interesting to see, and they have a lot of cool, old toys on display. Loved the pinball machines too. The staff was also very courteous and helpful with information on events in the area. Keep an eye out for Loo, one of the friendliest felines you'll ever meet who roams the premises. FYI: They offer a 10% AAA discount.

Kathleen Croft

George Hook

Jennie Gross Black

Tim Smith

Very nice people took me up their service elevator because of my bad knee

starr peterson

Very cool how they used the school's layout. They had great displays while leaving toys for the little ones to play with. The KNex roller coasters need to be tended to, only one coaster was working. Looking forward to the 2 coasters they are working on :) My favorite exhibit item: the stick. Lol! Fun little place to visit.

Deborah Stephenson

Always a not to visit this repurposed building. Lots to see and you can even play pin ball machines. It has stairs. They host the Marx Toy Annual Show.

K Patterson

Great place to take the kids. One of the best kept secrets in the area.

William Rearley

My husband and I went here while we celebrated our honeymoon. On our car it said "just married" as we looked at the museum the owner came up to us and said, are you by chance the newly weds? We replied yes. He then said follow me to the gift shop..so we did and he said i like to treat all my guest special but.my special special guests such as you i woukd like to treat better. Please help yourself to a free gift. He then gave us a locally blown glass flower for free. This was a great expirience and thr hospitality was amazing. The museum itselfboffered hands on fun along with activities to do through out. I highly reccomend this place for EVERYONE. Thank you Kruger Street Museum for such a great time!!

Anna Hutchinson

Great game we use to have as kids. Nice trains. Lego platform. Pinball machines.

Joyce Mudge

This place is awesome! I went to school in this building and hadn't been back since I "graduated". Once inside the door the memories came flooding back of teachers and friends long ago. The toy and train collections are incredible. I got a tour of the collection and the building that I will never forget. Many thanks to the staff for their time and the personalized tour AND to the owner, who saved this building from demolition. This building (and a few others) represent Elm Grove's history and should be preserved. Well worth a visit!

Warren Harkness

Very interesting to see older toys.

Stephanie Casterline

Jason Kukulka
