Well worth the trip! We had so much fun looking at and reliving childhood "memories"! I had a Campus Queen lunch box and hubby had a Star Trek Lunch Box. The kids loved the Keebler Elves Tree!

cost $5 to see lunch boxes. Over rated. It should be free. Seven older cars. Some furniture, but its in poor shape. The model airplane collection is free to see. I wonder if owner put his own place on trip advisor?????
