Action Figure Museum Turns a Nerd's Bedroom Into an Art GalleryS

Kevin Stark has a bit of an obsession with collecting action figures. But instead of hiding his nerdy hobby, he's turned it into a business by opening The Toy and Action Figure Museum.

In 2000, Kevin somehow convinced the town council of Pauls Valley, Oklahoma that they needed a museum or tourist attraction, and that his incredibly large collection of toys and action figures should be it. In 2005, the museum opened up, and in 2009 you found out about it and tried to figure out a good reason to go to Pauls Valley, Oklahoma.

In addition to his collection, which has got to be one of the biggest in the world, there's a superhero room where kids can dress up like superheroes and run around. And think of how good it would feel to do that in public so you wouldn't have to feel ashamed anymore.
