About the Museum

The Museum's collection concentrates primarily on the Kenner/Hasbro lines of Star Wars toys, although other toys and memorabilia are never refused. The Museum has a complete collection of Kenner action figures and vehicles, Star Wars Micro-Machines, and Star Wars comics, as well as impressive collections of Star Wars trading cards, plates, linen, posters, and various other items.

The Museum is housed at Meerkat Meade in suburban Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Visitors are welcome by appointment.

We welcome you to meet our Directors, Officers, and Advisors and browse pictures of the Museum. If you wish, you can read our Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws.

In 2006, The Museum was featured in the book Weird Maryland.

The Baltimore City Paper ran this article about the Museum on April 13, 1999.


Featured Items

Fanzine Archive

Fanzines (fan-produced magazines) are among the most ephemeral of items. They often have limited print runs and low distribution, and their resale value is low. The Museum is actively collecting and preserving Star Wars fanzines. Click here for more intormation.

Meerkat Six

The Millennium Falcon Extraordinaire

Star Wars Ceramic Mice

Mystery Items

Can you shed any light on the origin of these mysterious items?

Trading Post

Some things the Museum needs, along with some things we can trade. Trading card collectors should definitely take a look.

Revenge of the Sith Merchandise

Since May, 2005, the Museum has been overwhelmed by the sheer volume of Revenge of the Sith toys and other merchandise. New items come in every day, and there are piles waiting to be cataloged. Our buying has concentrated on toys, school supplies, magazines, and representative samplings of other materials. As always, any Star Wars related donations are welcome; the best bet for items that we do not have is apparel items and books. (Signs, displays, and other promotional items are most welcome.)
