On exhibit: artifacts of all our childhoods

September 07, 2006|By Stephanie Shapiro | Stephanie Shapiro,Sun Reporter

Maybe your parents raised you, but they had lots of help from a playful pantheon of make-believe idols: Jack Armstrong the All American Boy set a fine example as an adventurous youth who was eager to learn as well. The "Crispness Chorus" of Snap, Crackle and Pop exhorted kids to eat their Rice Krispies. And Donald Duck always had the best of intentions. Each shaped generations of children as citizens and consumers, and made them a product of their time.

To tour the new Geppi's Entertainment Museum in Camden Station is to reunite with those legions of imaginary characters who have instructed generations of Americans from infancy to old age.

Geppi's Entertainment Museum is at 301 W. Camden St. September hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Admission is $10; $9 seniors; $7 students; free to children 3 and younger. 410-625-7060 or geppismuseum.com.
