at The Strong® Museum
November 19

Join The Strong for a day honoring veterans during Robert C. Postal Toy Soldier Day at The Strong museum on Monday, November 19 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Take a picture with a life-sized Little Green Army Man, learn about toy military figures, and more. Veterans showing proper military identification receive half-off general museum admission fees.

Check out a diverse sample of international militaries shown in toy form in the museum’s Toy Soldiers on Parade display, featuring items from the Robert C. Postal Toy Soldier Collection. Enjoy a brief presentation by curator Michelle Parnett-Dwyer on the pageantry, pomp, and color of military figures at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. The presentations will also feature an introduction to the Robert C. Postal Toy Soldier Collection by his wife, Carole Postal.

Take a picture with a life-sized Little Green Army Man (inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame in 2014). The youngest guests can enjoy a special Little Green Army Men-themed Storytime Club and gear up for Teeny Tiny Boot Camp. Receive a free Little Green Army Man and design a custom parachute for your soldier.  

All Robert C. Postal Toy Soldier Day activities are included with general museum admission fees. Program and display made possible through the support of Carole Postal. Programs underwritten by Delta Air Lines, the official airline of The Strong.
