Report: 

On Friday June 23rd we visited the Kenner and the building of an Empire exhibit while we were at the Cincinnati Museum Center in Cincinnati Ohio. 

The Kenner and the building of an Empire was a tribute to the Cincinnati based toy maker that featured their iconic Star Wars collection and a few of their other early toys. For Star Wars they had 12" figures, all of the figures from Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, boxed vehicles, carded figures, playsets such as the Death Star and Ewok Village, the Early Bird set, a Sand crawler, AT-AT, micro machines, Ewok telephone, Ework learning clock, and some Power of the figures from the late 90's. 

This was a great exhibit to see it was a trip down memory lane for sure. You could tell who was born in the 70's when they were telling their children "I had this and this and this, but didn't have this or this" or "I had all these figures until I sold them for". I know I was telling my son similar stories. 

For more information on the exhibit and to purchase tickets make sure to visit the Cincinnati Museum Center website. This exhibit will be opened until October so make sure if you are in the area to get down there for a fantastic trip down memory lane. The Cincinnati Museum Center also has the Star Wars and the Power of the Costume exhibit two great Star Wars themed exhibits for the same price.
