A trip to Geppi's Entertainment Museum (301 W Camden St., Baltimore) will have you reminiscing about decades of American pop culture.

Geppis features 6,000+ pop culture objects on display: everything from film props and comics to toys and TV artifacts. Some objects are even as old as the hills (OK, or the 1700s).
 
Each of nine different rooms feature a different era. Check out a Barbie exhibit that includes an original Mattel box from the very first line of Barbie dolls, and the "When Heroes Unite" gallery that houses an original Betty Boop bridge game, circa 1932. 
 
Geppi's also offer tours designed for school-aged children, including "Pop Culture Goes to War," a tour that details the evolution of entertainment characters in America in times of war. 
 
We recommend you plan your trip for March 30, when Zombie Gras 3 will have zombies, makeup artists and more roaming the halls, eventually making their way down Camden Street for the Zombie Gras bar crawl. Tickets are $6 for the living, $0 for the undead (in costume). 
 
Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is $10; kids under 4 are free.
The museum is located about an hour from downtown D.C., or for those familiar with Baltimore baseball -- it's in the old Camden train station at Camden Yards on the second floor.
