Most of the dolls are very old. It's a good collection but not very well maintained. Technology hasn't touched the place yet. You get a feeling that you are in 1980s watching Doordarshan. Kids (till 10 years) though will enjoy it a bit. Tamilnadu dolls are best of the lot (always in constant motion). You can visit if you have... More

The colleciton of dolls from all over the world is brilliant. I just hope they can upgrade the interiors of the place a bit to make the display more pleasing. Some more information on the countries and making the display more interactive will be good. Nonetheless its a great place for kids and elders alike. Entry ticket is very cheap.... More

In the heart of New Delhi, this is wonderful place for kids of all ages. I went with my child and was equally amazed and enthralled. It practically had collection from all over the world, but the icing on the cake is the collection of dolls from various regions of India, including the section of traditional wedding customs. Very enjoyable.... More
