MILWAUKEE (AP) - A new museum in Milwaukee may well hold the largest collection of bobbleheads anyone has ever seen, displaying more than 6,500 figures of athletes, mascots, celebrities, animals, cartoon characters, politicians and more.

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum was the brainchild of friends Phil Sklar and Brad Novak, who started collecting the figures 16 years ago.

They're in the process of having the Guinness Book of World Records certify the collection as the world's largest. The current record is 2,396 bobbleheads, held by Phil Darling, from Richmond, Ontario.

Sklar and Novak have 10,000 bobbleheads, but not all of them are on display. Some will be on rotation or part of special exhibits.

The museum also includes information about bobbleheads and the people they represent.
