    Not just a place for kids....
    ...but a real surprise inside Naples. The access to this place is inside a small courtyard (maybe the navigator's directions can be a little confusing). One of the two girls there accompanied us all the way, explaining many interesting things about the subject. A place that survives both thanks to the interventions done on their little patients and thanks to the visits. In the initial stage you are told the story of the founding family that I do not want to anticipate so as not to spoil the surprise. Definitely a place not to be missed

    Interesting Doll Hospital! Very retro feeling!
    I made the effort to see the Dolls Hospital in Naples as I had seen one in Lisbon as well and enjoyed it. Similar set up and feeling as Lisbon. Nice to know these do exist around the world! Worth seeing if you are in Naples and to learn about its history.

    Fra sogno e realtà!
    Entrare in questa "struttura ospedaliera sui generis", è come varcare la soglia del tempo. Grazie alla gentile disponibilità di Tiziana Grassi la "primaria" e del suo staff, della loro pazienza e competenza... si entra "adulti" e si ritorna " bambini" per tutto il tempo della visita. A questa struttura nata nell'800 per volere di L.Grassi (-scenografo-), si è aggiunta da poco, una seconda sede. Tante sono le bambole: di plastica, ceramica o di pezza...e tanti i giocattoli di ogni tipo e provenienza che vengono ricoverati, aggiustati-pardon...curati,assistiti e riconsegnati "ex novo" ai legittimi proprietari. All'interno dell'Ospedale troviamo dall'Accettazione all'Oculistica, dall'Ortopedia alla Meccanica al Restauro Sacro...alla Vestitura... e al reparto di " Veterinaria" per i peluches. Nulla è lasciato al caso o all'improvvisazione, è tutto finalizzato...senza l'ombra di una formica o la presenza di una blatta... Cinque generazioni di bambole ...visitate, e, curate...cinque generazioni di bambini hanno visto "sanare" i compagni di giochi.

Tiziana has so much passion and is able to truly covey all the history that’s behind this landmark. The visit was a journey into the past, into the artisanship and is in no doubt worth the trip.

Very interesting and original museum to visit, in the heart of Napoli. Somewhat cult ambiance inside, which I enjoyed.

It recently changed site (they just moved a few 100s meters), but everything remain the same: it's Napoli at its best, in the authencity and also in the courtesy of the owners...

Whether you have kids or not, I really suggest you stop in this magic place which will take you back to your childhood.

The story is really amazing and what these people have been doing for generations is really moving.

I went with my 8ys old daughter, she was delight to see that magic world made of ancient and modern dolls. The lady in charge got my daughter dressed as a real doctor ready to visit her favorite puppet.

The feelings we all felt worth the ticket!

During the many years we have spent holidays in Napels we have seen the new Ospedale grow into a completely new set up. Tiziana has taken over the great work of her deceased father who started the Ospedale decades ago. Bambole are a part of the recent history of Naples and this lovely museum and workplace tell this story in a great way. A must see !

Although I was a bit sceptical at first, the experience was great and beyond! It was interesting to both the adults and the kids, and Luigi, the greatest guide, has accompanied us with great enthusiasm and cheerfulness. I recommend it very much for both families and only adults. Grazie mille Luigi, mi sono divertito molto!

Wonderful guided with amazing guide, Luigi. He shared the unique history of the wonderful family who cherished dolls and the children who loved them and continue the legacy . A wonderful animated film was shown that told the story. The people we met were so warm and welcoming. A must do experience. A museum unlike any other!!, thanks from Jeannie and Noreen.

A truly amazing place!
Everyone, children and adults left delighted! The place is not artificially created, it is real and has its own history. We were welcomed by very nice people who took us around the facility and told his story in detail. Great service also in English. We recommend this place very much!
