Mission:

Geppi’s Entertainment Museum is dedicated to presenting the story of popular culture since the nation’s earliest days in an entertaining and educational fashion so that our guests have the unique opportunity to walk through a timeline that parallels and is entwined with history as a whole.

First seen in newspapers, magazines, comic books, movies, radio or television, characters have made some of the greatest spokesmen the advertising world has ever witnessed.

Each time a new form of media has emerged, fresh characters have sprung up and older, successful ones have been revived, helping to popularize products from, juice, milk, other beverages, bread, cereal and candy to a dazzling array of consumer products. Through this process a wide range of characters has been instilled in the American psyche.

Their artifacts represent a major milestone in the histories of comic characters, children’s education and entertainment, and marketing that closely parallels the history of this nation. The study of these benchmarks is intriguing in itself, as if we’ve been given the keys that unlock the mysteries of time and the spirit of childhood simultaneously.

Vision:

Geppi’s Entertainment Museum (or "GEM," as we call it) is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream to see pop culture entertainment in the setting it deserves. Over the years I have been fortunate enough to be in position to preserve, promote and present historical comic character collectibles in a variety of venues to the point at which this Museum is the next logical step. Take a look around the Museum and you’ll see that the history of popular culture is so tightly woven into the social fabric of the United States of America that it parallels and reinforces mainstream history.

From my earliest days in the comic book business – when I was a child, counting comics for a local store – I have always enjoyed sharing my excitement about the characters with other people. From my brother and the rest of my family, to my friends growing up in Baltimore’s Little Italy, to the high profile acquaintances I have made in the business world, spreading the word has been a mission I’ve taken seriously.

Its CLOSED. The museum in Baltimore closed forever on June 3rd, 2018. When I discovered this place in October last year? Wow. Just wow. All my childhood (*and* my parents childhood) in one neat place STUFFED to the ceiling with memorabilia. It *WAS* incredible. So I came back to visit it again today, only to learn its CLOSED FOREVER. Its closed! Shut down! All its contents donated to the Library of Congress. Again: ITS PERMANENTLY CLOSED.

This place is an amazing experience! The exhibits are interesting and so much fun. Highly recommend going here if you're in Baltimore (or live here and haven't been there yet).

Love how I can go back in time (not literally) with all the things to see. The treasure hunt paper is fun and challenging (I beat it though😎) and got free comics.

Grand experience for its final day at Baltimore, Maryland. Excellent guests from young to the middle age. Wishing that it could expand into what used to be the Sports Museum to maintain all of the pop culture history from the 1920s to the present day. Also, I wish for a week extension for other fans of rock music, I Love Lucy, anime, Marvel Comics and DC Comics can see the true treasure trove of Batimore City.

I didn't actually visit the museum went there to make some comic book purchases and the comic book shop is fantastic. The customer service I received was very pleasant and helpful
