Numerous old and ragged dolls on display. Don't spend a lot of time around in there. Most of the display are at least 60-70 yrs old. I doubt even if kids would enjoy it.uui

Shankar's doll museum of Delhi is well worth going to regardless of your age. The museum, while not huge in area, has an immense collection of dolls from all over the world. This is a great insight into various cultures, but at the same time a bit overwhelming in its sheer variety. The doll collection from Japan was clearly the... More

If you want a change from the malls this is certainly a place to consider. Huge collection of dolls from all across the globe. Some of them have acquired a bit of dust but overall a nice break!

The dolls are beautiful and there is whole range of collection of dolls from most parts of the world. The ambience is neat and tidy but the dolls are not maintained very well Some of the themes are outstanding and the kids especially the girls love their dresses and accessories

This lovely little gem of a museum is hidden between large corporate buildings of newspapers and tyre companies in Delhi's ITO area. The collection of about ten thousand dolls from around the world in traditional and regional costumes, dating back several decades with relatively few new additions, takes about two hours to peruse. The ambience is, sadly, old and musty...... More

Well, the building itself does not house very much which is permanent relating with the life and work of Shankar. Yet the bookstore is well worth a visit and there you get acquainted with a man who could be gentle and corrosive in his sketches and also write beautiful stories for children

Situated in the heart of the city, near ITO, the Doll's Museum is close to Times of India's Office. The Museum houses lots of dolls from various parts of the world. But unfortunately i dont think there is any addition in the Doll's Museum in past 20 years. Also, it seems as if the dolls in the museum are screaming... More
