Two Free Museums in Haltom City Promise Fun for Kids Out of School for the Summer

Haltom City, TX – July 6, 2022DFW Elite Toy Museum is the brainchild of Ron Sturgeon, an entrepreneur, HUBA founder and small business advocate who started his first business in Haltom City approximately 50 years ago.


Ron initially focused his collecting on Mercedes toys and then moved on to vintage automobile-themed items such as race cars and scale models.  As the years progressed, the collection expanded to include vintage toys, unique signs and other collectibles. Eventually, Ron decided to share his passion for toys with the public and DFW Elite Toy Museum was born.


Today, the museum has more than 3,000 unique pieces.  Auto enthusiasts will appreciate the collection of Tippco tin toys along with a wide array of early tin, wind-up, pressed steel, and other collectibles — including the rare Eva Braun Mercedes toy.  Dog lovers will like that the museum is dog-friendly and currently features an exhibition entitled “Dogs in Art, Toys and Antiques” which includes paintings and other dog-related memorabilia from around the globe.


The DFW Elite Toy Museum is located at 5940 Eden Drive in Haltom City, TX and is open to the public Monday through Friday and on most Saturdays.  Admission is free and group visits are welcome.


Salon and Spa Museum offers visitors a glimpse of what salons and spas were like in years gone by. The museum features antique salon and barber equipment, vintage hair care items, rare photos, sales and marketing materials and other items of note.  The museum is in the Salon & Spa Galleria at 5208 Airport Freeway in Haltom City. Admission is free.
