The new permanent exhibit titled, A Century of Dolls, will be designed by Curatorial Consultant Stacey Danielson and showcase the Museum’s antique and vintage doll and doll furniture collections.

The exhibit will be displayed on the second floor, becoming a special feature in the Museum’s 90-minute Guided Tour. Dolls on view will represent the artistry of doll makers, including 1850s porcelain, European doll making in its heyday during the late 19th century, and Madame Alexander dolls of literary characters and famous movie personalities that gained popularity in the 1930s. Enchanting vignettes such as “A Garden Tea Party”, “Baking Cookies”, and “Choir Practice” will portray the fascinating history of dolls and doll making in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
