The Southeastern Toy Soldier Show will be at the South Carolina State Museum on Saturday, August 9. This annual treat is one of the museum’s signature events.

More than 30 exhibitors from across the South will display their collections of toy soldiers, or “military miniatures,” in this annual presentation. Miniature tanks, planes, cannons and vehicles will also be available for purchase from exhibitors. See living history reenactments on the museum’s front grounds. Historical reenactors will recreate military timelines. In addition, military vehicles from the World War II and Vietnam eras will be shown.

Exquisitely detailed military miniature figures or the little plastic G.I. Joes from your childhood, they’re all here at the Southeastern Toy Soldier Show. See, buy, or trade toy soldiers or other military miniatures from various periods of history and enjoy special museum programs presented during the day.

There will also be a display of military miniatures in a diorama sponsored by the South Carolina Military Miniature Society. For more information about the Southeastern Toy Soldier Show or the military miniature diorama, please contact Celeste Wszola at (803) 898-4952.

The South Carolina State Museum is located at 301 Gervais Street, Columbia. Details on museum admission are available here.
