What a fun, easy-to-find place to visit. Don't let the word "museum" keep you from stopping. I didn't really want to pay to go into a museum, but I went into this pop culture heaven hoping at least for a gift shop. Wow! There are at least four rooms packed with all sorts of memorabilia -- toys, posters, photos -- and all kinds of fun items for sale. And that's before you even pay to go into the museum part of the place. The prices seemed quite reasonable on the stuff I looked at.

The lady running the place was fun to talk with and quite cordial and didn't try to force me to go into the paid part of the shop.
