Tucked into the warehouse shared with Drive Your Dream, the DFW Elite Toy Museum plays hide and seek with visitors. For those fortunate enough to come across it, there are eyefuls of rare goodies everywhere. Owned by Don Sturgeon, this museum was founded by Don's love of collectibles.
Shelves and walls and even ceilings are lined with unique mint condition toys from World War II, rare Mercedes toys, dog toys, salesman samples and rare European and Japanese tin.
Inside, an original BMW Yvette car, which still runs is a popular attraction. Collections of vintage fire trucks, cars, Indy pins, and model Ferraris fill walls and shelves.
Toy collectors, model car enthusiasts and lovers of the quirky and unique will find fascinating eye-candy that ranges from Jeron race car models, dog antiques, and even the Malcolm Forbes collection. There is nothing ordinary in this museum, solidifying its place on the roster of off-the-beaten-path DFW locations.
Located at 5940 Eden Dr. in Fort Worth, the museum is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays by appointment. There is no admission, but donations are very welcome.
