The name of the place is the National Farm Toy Museum, why would most of the items be reproductions or replicas. I made the effort to go there and paid the admission, and expected to see real vintage farm toys, Not repos, Not collector show made up items, and surely not to see Hartland Western and Horse statues.

Brought my 3 and 5 year olds here. I really enjoyed the exhibits, very interesting. As it turns out, they are far more interested in toys that they can PLAY with. Congratulations to our friends, Gerry and Alice Schneider for having the largest collection of toys on exhibit there.

Even myself, who was raised in the city, I found it quite interesting. While I was traveling with a group from a farming community I found it a... More

Another stop on my trip through Iowa.....very, very interesting, and a joy to see all the toys and tractors and stories. Great for any ages and there some things for kids to play with as well. So very informative about toys, tractors, and farming. A great learning experience and low cost as well!

Waited years to go to this museum . Once lived about thirty plus miles away and heard wonderful things about it. Took us moving to another state to finally come see . The kids would have loved this at a younger age. We liked it now and so did they. Took one of our sons and he said he would... More

There is a lot to see and look at. Very interesting, even if you are not a collector or enthusiast. My sixteen and eleven year old enjoyed it as well.
