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

This was a project that Rotary Club of Chandigarh started way back in 1984-85, when one of the Rotarians,... 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.

The place houses dolls from diferrent countries with their beautiful costumes. In the back ground information about that countery is shown. 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

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.
