Maryland’s Star Wars museum

Ever thought about starting a museum inside your house? How about amassing thousands of Star Wars toys?

Thomas Atkinson did both when he created the Star Toys Museum in Linthicum Heights, Md., putting his more than 13,000 Star Wars collectibles on display for visitors. I went and interviewed him last week for this Capital News Service video.

And Washington Post blogger Michael S. Rosenwald mentioned the video on his blog today. (Nice surprise to see as my final semester as a graduate student at Maryland winds down this week.)
