KC Toy Museum to undergo major renovation

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Toy and Miniature Museum in Kansas City plans to undergo a major renovation.

The museum said in a release Tuesday it will close temporarily on Jan. 6 after the holiday season and reopen later as The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures. The renovation is expected to begin in the spring of 2014 and take about a year.

The Toy and Miniature Museum opened in 1982 and has the world's largest collection of miniatures, antique toys and marbles.

The museum started a $9.2 million capital campaign last year to support the renovation and has raised $8.5 million so far. The new national museum is expected to reopen in early 2015.
