Toy museum will close in January for an overhaul

The collection of more than 72,000 items will be mothballed after Jan. 6 while the interior of the building at 5235 Oak St. is remodeled and a new heating and cooling system is installed. The museum will reopen in early 2015 as the National Museum of Toys and Miniatures. The name change reflects an effort to raise its profile regionally and nationally.
