This is a look-but-don't-touch collection of all kinds of fun entertainment memorabilia. Originally an ode to the comic book, it expanded over the years to include all sorts of pop-culture artifacts, from Star Trek and Barbie lunchboxes to animation cels to decoder rings and action figures. Stylishly designed and housed on the second floor of the historic Camden train station (beside Camden Yards stadium), the museum primarily features the collection of its founder, Steve Geppi, who made his fortune finding, collecting, and selling this amusing slice of Americana. Some of his favorite pieces are located here along with toys and collectibles associated with Amazing Stories, Superman, or Yellow Kid. Where else can you walk through 250 years of comic history and then spend your money in the gift shop on cool stuff?
