Take Your Imagination on an Animation Vacation. Boyer Museum of Animated Carvings features the artistic works of Paul Boyer. Paul is a self-taught artist who has been carving for over 60 years. The musuem showcases his work from the past 40+ years. Paul's work consists of a working calliope made from cedar, animated hand carved figurines that include people, animals, replicas of planes, cars, engines, farm machinery and wonderful wire sculptures that have ball bearings riding on a maze of tracks and bouncing on drums. Paul uses soft pine, cedar and walnut for most of his carvings and he hand paints them all. His work ranges from very humorous to very beautiful. You will certainly be amazed! There are over 65 displays. You have to see it to believe it! Groups and Tours are Welcome! Please call ahead.
