Bobblehead museum coming to Milwaukee
- Updated: November 18, 2014
Milwaukee is known for beer, brats and sports, but soon the city will also be recognized as the bobblehead capital of the world. The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, which will display the world’s largest collection of bobbleheads and bobblehead-related exhibits along with being the premier source of bobblehead related news and information, announced its establishment and intention to locate in Milwaukee on Tuesday.
“We are very excited to bring such a unique attraction to the great city of Milwaukee,” said Phil Sklar, the Hall of Fame and Museum’s Co-Founder and CEO. “The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum will be a fun venue for collectors, fans and visitors to experience all things bobble-related.
Milwaukee has many unique attractions, and this will be a must see destination for people in Milwaukee and around the country once it is up and running. But before than, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum will need your help. A Kickstarter campaign has been started to help raise money to help build a world-class facility.
“The excitement and membership pre-sales during the pre-launch efforts have been tremendous, and we are excited to officially announce the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum to the world,” said Brad Novak, the Hall of Fame and Museum’s Co-Founder and President. “Becoming a member or helping to fund the Museum through the Museum’s Kickstarter campaign will help us build the highest quality Hall of Fame and Museum possible.”
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum is still evaluating several potential locations in Milwaukee. In addition to the Hall of Fame and Museum space, plans include ample room for special events such as birthday parties, autograph signings, weddings and meetings and a store featuring bobbleheads and Hall of Fame and Museum merchandise. Plans also include the Bobblehead Bar and Grill featuring a bobblehead-themed, locally sourced menu.
“Brad and I have been collecting bobbleheads for over a decade and we look forward to sharing the world’s largest bobblehead collection as well as dozens of bobblehead-related exhibits with everyone,” said Sklar, who plans to open the physical National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum by 2016.
