Going Places: The Toy Collection of Jerry Smith

On Christmas Day in 1923, a young Kansas boy named Jerry Smith received a single toy tractor under his family's tree. Smith would grow up to become a successful Kansas City automotive dealer and philanthropist, but he never forgot that humble toy tractor. As an adult, it inspired him to amass a world-class toy collection that included planes, trains and automobiles. He displayed his collection to spread joy and to raise money for local charities. From cast iron trains to fanciful airplanes, Going Places explores the history of transportation toys and examines how one person with a generous heart and a fantastic toy collection made a lasting impact on his community. Included with museum admission.
