Profile

Located on the ground floor of the Forbes building, the galleries feature permanent exhibits as well as rotating exhibitions from Forbes magazine’s collection of fine art and vintage items, as well as special shows on loan from other museums and collections. Included in the permanent collection is an assortment of over 500 tin, cast iron, and paper toy boats; an army of several thousand toy soldiers; and a hodgepodge of over 175 trophies collected from flea markets and pawn shops, including a plaque rewarding the best White Leghorn chickens at the Northamptonshire Egg Laying Trials. Also on display: a collection of Monopoly boards, including an early 1920 version called "The Landlord’s Game,” and the world’s first proper Monopoly board, a circular creation handmade by Charles Darrow around 1933.
