West Virginia Charter Bus Tour Stop 5: The Kruger Street Toy and Train Museum

If you were a fan of toy trains as a kid or spent hours putting together a model of one, you’re going to love this next stop. The story here began with a father and son who bonded over none other than collectible train models in the 1970s. In the beginning, their collection consisted of mostly Lionel Trains, and by the 1980s, it grew into trains like Louis Marx and Company. Their joy for collecting items didn’t stop at trains, throughout this time, they also collected things like classic 1950s playsets, dolls, and dollhouses. For a while, the father and son duo shared their knowledge about their items during informational exhibits they held, and then decided to fully commit and open a museum. By 1998, their doors were open, and the rest is history, literally. The experience here is much like what you would find spending hours sifting through a thrift store, except there are only the interesting things, so you don’t have to spend time searching. Check out the history of these gems.
