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.
