Plan your next vacation to include a visit to a play-related store, museum, or private collection.

Local Comic Shop Day

November 19 marks the 2016 edition of Local Comic Shop Day. In recognition of a day created to celebrate independently-owned shops, we want to share nine (yep, nine) favourite comic book shops from our travels and some of the shops on our list of places to visit.

Austin Toy Museum | Toy Tales

Austin Toy Museum – Austin, Texas

Austin, Texas is already known as a hotbed of unique and interesting things to see and do; Austin Toy Museum adds another layer of fun to this dynamic city.

Lunch Box Museum – Columbus, Georgia

A stop at the Lunch Box Museum in Columbus, Georgia will let you relive that feeling of childhood wonderment of standing in front of a department store shelf trying to decide which lunch box should accompany you to school.

Brickmania

Brickmania – Minneapolis, Minnesota

The brainchild of independent designer, Daniel Siskind, the Brickmania Toys company is focused on creating LEGO kits that fall outside of LEGO’s official product lines.
