Geppi Museum = Mecca for Comic Book and Pop Culture Fans

Nobody knows what heaven is like but it is hard to imagine it could possibly be much better than
Geppi's Entertainment Museum in Baltimore, Maryland. I visited this museum a while back and, quite honestly, my every sense was completely overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of awesomeness that is contained there.

What is on display at Geppi's? Well... entertainment. Specifically entertainment that YOU like if you're any kind of pop culture junkie, gamer, or geek. The museum is literally stuffed to the gills with comic books, posters, toys, statues, and other pop culture artifacts. There isn't any place you can't look that you're not finding something that you thought you'd never actually see in person. You could spend a week in Geppi's and barely scratched the surface of what's there.

Comic books? Their collection goes back to the Yellow Kid who started it all. From there, they have the entire history of comics documented. What's before the Golden age of comics? The Victorian Age. And they've got books from that era. Action Comics #1? Check. Amazing Fantasy #15? Check. Name a book you've always wanted to see and, chances are, they'll have it. And the crazy thing is the comics on display are only a very small fraction of their total collection.

From there you can proceed to view an assortment of movie, gaming, cartoon, and television show memorabilia. From Star Wars to Star Trek to the Flintstones to Sesame Street to McDonalds to The New Kids on the Block to Barbie... Geppi's has it all. Want to see a movie posters from the 1944 Captain America movie serial? They've got it. Curious about the Captain Marvel Fan Club from 1942? They've got it. I could literally go on for pages. There's just no way to describe it accurately.

So if you're any kind of a fan of comic books, science fiction or pop culture in general, do yourself a favor and visit Geppi's Entertainment Museum in Baltimore, Maryland. The only thing you'll regret is having to leave.

The photo below shows how they literally have used every square inch to display their incredible collection.
