A doll collection, original Mickey Mouse, computer game display, old board games and sample collection from youth sport leagues will be available for viewing.
There are also old bikes and wagons, World War I metal toys as well as contemporary children's books on display.
Magician Van-ish will be performing at 10:30 a.m. He is a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians and will be performing a wide array of tricks. Admission is free.
Committee members who put the Red Rover exhibit together include Chairman Judy George, Mariette Bargin, Marilyn Lawrence, Cortina Ison, Linda Raines, Dorothy Brown, Shirley Steward, Vicky Kricher, S. Green, Terry Ross, David English, Joe Condon and Mark McKee.
A replica of the Sutherlin Round Barn, a piece of Putnam County history that is no longer standing, will also greet visitors when they enter the museum.
John and Rea Sutherlin Zeiner made construction of the barn possible. Rea remembers playing in the barn as a child, as does son David. It will open on Saturday at the same time as the Red Rover exhibit.
