Visitor Tips and News About Eddie's Toy Museum and Store
This is a privately owned museum. It features anything Nascar, from cars, figurines, food products. Then there are the toys -- from every era. The museum also has all kinds of Coca Cola items. You walk through and you remember your childhood or something your grandparents may have had.
There is a wonderful gift shop downstairs. Something for everyone. What is sold are duplicates of what is in the museum, antiques, Nascar items.
Ed Stanat is the owner. He is such a wonderful man and a great storyteller. He takes you through his museum and tells you about each item, how he acquired something or how he fell in love with this particular item.[Marti Zimmerman, 07/04/2007]
Ed is now focused exclusively on his toys-- over 20,000 collected over 40 years -- although his museum does still feature an elaborate toy-and-collectable tribute to Dale Earnhardt Sr.
