Its a little too old for even the youngsters to enjoy The place has been properly maintained.Its avoidable,but if you have spare time on hand and are near to the place,worth a small visit. Not a place I will specially go all around delhi travelling to visit.

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
