Exclusive tour of “Toys of the Future” exhibit, followed by a special space-age make-and-take project! Designed for ages 6 and up. Free and open to the public. Reservations requested! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 316-265-9314.
The Museum features the stellar and widely celebrated Goldbarth Collection of mid- 20th century “space toys” in the exhibit “Toys of the Future!” 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 collector, Wichitan Albert Goldbarth, invites you to a cosmos where the chains of gravity can be broken at a button’s tap, and the wonders of other worlds are just a lever’s touch away.
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: Wichita Eagle, KSN TV and KMUW. The Museum is grateful for their support of this special exhibit and its related programs.
