Over my years of working in the doll world, I have seen lots of doll museums all over the country. I have also, unfortunately, seen more than a few doll museums close. I decided to put together a list of museums that are currently open.
Museums definitely offer a lot of information on dolls and doll collecting and in my experience, the people there are always willing and eager to share their knowledge of dolls. Here is a small part of the list of museums in the U.S.
Doll Shop & Museum, 520 Thames St., Newport, RI 02840 610-670-6868
There is also a great list of shops and museums online listed here:
I would love to add to this list. If you have any museums not listed here, please let me know so I can update.
What’s the best doll museum you’ve ever visited? Please share!
Next week’s blog will be about dolls that aren’t really dolls – like doll pin cushions, doll lamps, and doll whisk brooms! What’s the strangest doll related item you’ve ever seen?
Thanks for reading and have a great week!
