Past Conventions

The Marx Toy & Train Collectors National Convention was started in 1998 by the Miller Family, owners of the Kruger Street Toy & Train Museum. These conventions were meant as a way to preserve the rich history of the Ohio Valley’s own Louis Marx & Company,  and the many area men and women who made those wonderful toys that were loved by generations!

Held in June each year, the Marx Conventions have grown with each passing year. From a few dozen attendees in 1998, the events have blossomed into “must do” destinations for hundreds of Marx enthusiasts from around the country!

 

If you’ve attended any of the past conventions, then you know what they are like! If not, why not check out the registration materials for the next convention. Make an effort to attend, and we are sure that you won’t regret it!
