“Nice Place for children as well as adults.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

This is a good place to visit especially for children. The museum as the name suggests has a very large collection of dolls from India as well as from all over the world. A well maintained place that is air conditioned and one an safely spend an hour going over the collection of dolls. The entry ticket is very nominal. Avoid weekends and the holiday season as this time is usually busy. Parking is limited at this place as the museum is located in a very busy area that houses many offices. Children will definitely enjoy here. Worth a visit.

“Poorly maintained!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

The museum has a wide collection of dolls from all over the world. The Indian dolls depict Indian culture and traditions very well. The dolls are old and poorly maintained. The museum infrastructure is also poorly maintained. They could have some stalls selling indian dolls at the counter. The entrance fee is just Rs. 10 for adults and Rs. 5 for kids. They could double the fees and provide better maintenance, cleaner washrooms and have some water and snack stalls as well.
