Elmers Auto & Toy Museum
The family of Elmer Duellman has recently announced their 2022 Elmer’s Auto and Toy Museum
schedule, and it has been revealed that this season will be the 29th and last year operating the museum.
In the late ’60s, through the ’70s, and into the ’80s Elmer, with the wholesale support of his wife Bernadette, was collecting cars; amassing a collection of over 100 antique, classic, and muscle cars. After he filled the 3 large buildings housing his cars, his collecting turned in earnest to buying smaller items he could display without adding additional buildings. Enter pedal cars and toys! Elmer loved the thrill of the hunt for new, unique, and varied items, all the while self-educating himself and becoming a respected expert in both the pedal car and the toy markets. In 1995 and 1996 he authored two volumes of Elmer’s Price Guide to Toys.
