Collection of toys depicting Indian and other cultures. Most of the toys are broken and dusty. Must have been splendid once. Even then, it is worth a visit once, esp. with kids. Closed on Mondays. Entry fee Rs 10 per person. Time you can spend: 5-10 min.

I would say that one must visit this place. Its quite different. Different varieties of dolls are on display representing different parts of the world. The place is very quite and usually very few people visit this. But you wont regret visiting this place, esp if you have kids with you.

Good collection of dolls. kids will enjoy this. but staff is very eager to switch off the lights and museum with very short notice before its closing time.

This place is basically for kids. Nothing impressive, just a bunch of dolls dressed in various Indian and International costumes. Its located in Sector 23 B. Not worth visiting, can skip it if needed. It will take around Rs.40-50 if you take a cycle Rickshaw from Rose Garden.
