Doll Museums

UFDC Museum







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.

UFDC, Inc., 10900 North Pomona Avenue,Kansas City, MO 64153   (816)891-7040

Ida Dennie Willis Museum Of Miniatures Dolls and Toys, 628 N Country Club Dr, Tulsa , OK,(918) 584-6654

There is also a great list of shops and museums online listed here: Doll Shops and Museums

There are amazing museums all over the world including the Paris Doll Museum, the Puppenmuseum in Germany, and the River Dolls museum in Australia.

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!
