Went searching for the place base on reviews. At the gate the watch man did not know that the complex houses the museum. The sign board displayed timmings but the place was locked and it would appear that it had not been opened or visited ever. Avoid , avoid and avoid

Located in a quaint corner, you need to go around to locate the place. But the visit will be worth it, with dolls from all around the world on display.

It has dolls from all around the world, up to about 70 years old. It's a good place for a half day visit with children. And it's quite interesting for adults too. It;s a shame that the UK exhibition is so pathetic.

Money is never an issue if we get its worth. The doll house was so unkempt. ..there was dust on all the dolls. The dolls barely resemblanced any country they... More

The doll museum is a nice place, a lovely concept but it needs a lot of maintainence & upgradation. Young children will enjoy the place. Worth going once for the experience. Hopefully they will add More dolls And spend some time & money on upgrading the place soon. But do check it out at least once especially if you have... More

Apart from dolls they are showing picture stories from famous epics . Another interesting thing on display is brides from different states of India in their traditional wedding dresses. Over all a good experience for young children. They have... More
