The Museum will feature the stellar and widely celebrated Goldbarth Collection of mid-20th century “space toys.” 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 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: The Wichita Eagle, KSNW – Channel 3, and KMUW radio. The Museum is grateful for their support of this special exhibit and its related programs.
