Matchbox Road Museum – Newfield, New Jersey

Do you remember your first toy car? If it was a Matchbox, chances are you can find it at the Matchbox Road Museum.

The museum was established in 1992 by Everett Marshall III in Newfield, New Jersey. A collector of the die-cast cars since he was a child, Marshall parlayed his hobby into a 2,100-square-foot location that contains over 60,000 Matchbox-related items.

In addition to documenting the evolution of Matchbox, the museum features the cars on display. They are organized in numerical order, including known variations. The collection also includes one-of-a-kind Matchbox prototypes and pre-production design models from the company.

Visits to the museum are by appointment only and hosted by Marshall or another fellow Matchbox enthusiast.
