Herb and Gloria Barker’s cache of childhood nostalgia is one of the largest such collections in America. Old-time treasures such as Lone Ranger flashlight rings appeal to Baby Boomers, while the Pixar collectibles are a hit with the young set. Admission: $5 adults, $3 ages 3–12; free for ages 2 and under.

From Popeye and Mickey to Buzz Lightyear
and the California Raisins, the Barker champions the imaginary friends of a century of childhoods. Why did you ever throw away that Cinderella watch?
