Outside the World’s Largest Toy Museum, two larger-than-life toy soldiers flank the entranceway, which leads to a collection of more than one million toys from the 19th century to today. The proprietors have neatly organized their eclectic memorabilia on wooden and glass shelving, and bigger items hang from the ceilings. Visitors experience fascination and nostalgia while browsing antique tin fire trucks, a 1959 British Embassy Rolls-Royce, superhero action figures, and retro lunchboxes, a more compact version of the dinner trays kids used to carry to school.
The Harold Bell Wright Museum is a special area of the World’s Largest Toy Museum dedicated to a local hero and scribe. Learn about the author’s life and dedication to penning articles, screenplays, and novels, including 1907’s The Shepherd of the Hills. This story, which was once a staple of required classroom reading, helped make Branson, Missouri, a popular spot for tourists.
