Toy museum is a great trip down memory lane. Large selection of toys (especially wood toys) and books. They even have a small carousel. Worth a short stop.

Nice stop right off the highway. Fun to look at the display cases of all the old toys and find ones that you used to play with! The hand carved carousal is quite something to admire. Large toy store to shop as well.
