Amazing Unique Dollhouse and Toys Museum
Aug 2021 • Family
An amazing place to see while you are visiting Southern Vermont is Dollhouse and Toy Museum of Vermont. My family which includes my husband, my in laws, sister-in-law and her husband and their children were warmly welcomed. We spent an hour looking at the various collections and talking with the owner. We all enjoyed the experience. This place shouldn’t be missed. Go and visit this unique museum.
Thank you for the wonderful experience, something my family will remember, especially all the amazing dolls- like John F Kennedy, Lucy, Babe Ruth and of course all the cute little doll houses.

An unexpected find.
Sep 2020
We visited this museum on a whim. So many wonderful things packed into a small but well organized space. Dolls, toys, thousands of miniatures. Saw some amazing things representing multiple countries. The miniature paintings and the beautiful porcelain dolls were some of my personal favorites. My only quibble is the limited hours the museum is open. I believe weekends are the regular and not Covid influenced hours. Saturday and Sunday afternoons only.

I can't wait to go back again!

I was recently in Bennington visiting with my family. My sister-in-law (who is a Bennington native!) and I decided to go see this. It was a first time for both of us. I have been a fan of dolls and dollhouses all of my life so this was a thrill for me. I love the detail that is put into each dollhouse and also the exhibits based on different children's books! Next trip back, it will be on my weekend afternoon to-do list!!! I was fascinated by the workroom where everything is scaled down and created. I highly recommend this to anyone who values miniatures, antique toys and dolls and just wants a chance to be a kid again for an afternoon!

I've been to the Dollhouse & Toy Museum a few times now, and each visit there are new and fascinating things to see! I especially love all the Travel dolls and the Fairy house exhibit. Definitely worth the trip!

A Delightful Surprise!
Nov 2017 • Couples
This was our second visit to this little jewel! Jackie, the owner and creator of the museum is an energetic and informative guide to the huge number of tiny treasures, many of which she built herself. Wonderfully detailed Victorian doll houses, mouse houses, fairy houses and gardens, a miniature art museum and a very realistic miniature bakey (two of my favorites) character dolls, puppets, trains, and vintage toys of all kinds. fill this little cottage. Children will enjoy it, but not nearly as much as the adults! I pretty much dragged my husband the first time we visited, but he enjoyed it as much as I did and was eager to go back. It is well worth a special trip to Bennigton just to visit this museum!

Fun!

Takes you back to your own childhood, or to parts of our history that you never knew. Great collections of toys and dollhouses. And you get close up to all displays. Good for one visit or for many returns, as the new shows are frequent (and excellent).
