The Toy Robot Museum

The Toy Robot Museum is located in Adamstown, Pennsylvania and is owned and operated by Joe Knedlhans.  Robots, and consequently, robot toys are largely modern inventions. They are usually constructed on lithographed metal or plastic and made between 1950 and the present. However, at the robot museum, Joe showed me an early wooden robot from the Jolin Company of Appleton, Wisconsin. This robot is rare and is shown here along with photographs of Joe and his unique Toy Robot Museum.

The Robot Museum is like no other toy museum.
