Relive your childhood at Geppi’s Entertainment Museum

TEDDY’s RATING: 

I mentioned in a previous post that I recently went on a business trip to Baltimore, Maryland. On the last day, since my colleague and I had a few hours before heading to the airport, we decided to check out Geppi’s Entertainment Museum. It’s located downtown at Camden Station, right next to the Baltimore Orioles baseball stadium.

Now, I’ve read other reviews of Geppi’s and some people have complained about the $10.00 admission charge. (If you find one of their brochures around town or at a hotel, you can get $2.00 off.) Granted, that does seem like a lot for a somewhat small 8 room museum, but if you find at least one item in there that you remember having as a kid, it’s well worth the admission just for the nostalgia factor. I reached euphoria seeing the exact same Chitty Chitty Bang Bang lunchbox I had on my first day of school back in 1970.

As their brochure says, Geppi’s is a “breathtaking trip through 250 years of American pop culture.” (Well, maybe not breathtaking, but certainly awesome!) At any one time, the museum is home to more than 6,000 items: toys, dolls, games, movie posters, memorabilia, collectibles and hundreds of comic books, including some first editions. I’ll let my photos speak for themselves.

          

          

                                

So, take a trip back in time to your childhood, when your best friends were G.I. Joe, the Fonz and Charlie’s Angels. They’re all at Geppi’s Entertainment Museum.

Dates of Visit:  October 2012
