Nothing brings back the wonderful moments of our childhood like seeing our favorite toy, whether it was a classic Barbie doll or one of the original GI Joe's. The city of Wheeling, W.Va is home to a treasure trove of those great memories all collected in Millers Kruger Street Toy and Train Museum. Alan Miller and his son assembled toys dating from the 1890's along with an impressive collection of trains and housed them in a Victorian mansion. The National Road column of the American Road 2010 Winter issue tells the full story of their collection.

 

On this American Road Trip Talk I speak with James Schulte. The curator of this remarkable museum is in his mid-20's and many of the toys and trains are quite a few times his age but James has a tremendous grasp of the collection and a vision for its future.
