When visiting the Doll Museum, visitors will find a new exhibition, "Play to Learn" along with the permanent collection of 19th and 20th century dolls. “Play to Learn”€¯ will feature children's toys that were made as miniatures of adult housekeeping implements both from the Society’s collection and treasures on loan from private collectors.

Come visit these dolls working at sewing, ironing, cooking and sweeping--all meant to instruct and perfect the accomplishments need to keep a perfect house!
