There are very few countries in the world that have such a huge variety of dolls as we have in India. Built in 1957, the museum has some of the most finest and peculiar dolls that you will ever see. Starting from a humble collection of 3000 dolls, the museum today proudly exhibits 6500 dolls from more than 85 countries.
The museum is divided into two main sections. In one part you will see dolls from Yugoslavia, Greece, Mexico, Thailand, Poland, South Korea, the United Kingdom, former USSR, North and South America, Australia, New Zealand and some other countries. In the other section you will find dolls from Asian countries, the Middle East, Africa, and different states of India.
In the museum you will find dolls on display with special themes like man on the moon, Japanese Kabuki dancer, Mexican aborigines and Australian Maoris among other things. During summer when most of the schools declare summer vacation, the Doll Museum becomes a hub of activity. The prime attraction of the museum is the Doll Workshop. Here you can see a lot of people working to make a doll look absolutely perfect. Not only are they exchanged for foreign dolls, it is also sold to the tourists. Representing the cultures of various countries, the dolls are truly representative of a world with in harmony.
