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

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
