TOYLAND - A Vintage Christmas


Canceled due to the Camp Fire

The holiday season is off to a great start at the Gold Nugget Museum. The young and young at heart are invited to the opening of Toyland—A Vintage Christmas on Friday, November 16 at 7 p.m. The museum has gathered a fantastic collection of toys from the turn of the century through the 1960s, including Matchbox, Lionel, Marx, Wolverine, and more. Take a walk down Memory Lane and see toys that you remember playing with. Local collectors will be on hand to answer your questions.

Admission is free for museum members and children under age 12. Admission for nonmembers is $5. Refreshments will be served.

The Gold Nugget Museum is located at 502 Pearson Road in Paradise. For information, call (530) 872-8722 or visit our facebook page.

Sadly, due to the devastating Camp Fire which burned through our beloved Town of Paradise on the morning of November 8, 2018 and destroyed our treasured Gold Nugget Museum, this exhibit and opening event was not to be. Thankfully a good portion of the vintage toys brought in for this wonderful exhibit were safely evacuated, and perhaps one day in the future they may be exhibited again in a newly rebuilt museum facility.

Please bear with us, and check in often, as we dig through the ashes, set up shop in the Paradise Depot Museum, and work together to create a new generation of the Gold Nugget Museum.
