We went here out of curiosity more than anything, never having come across a modern doll museum before. The owner is lovely, welcoming and extremely generous with his time. We got a lot more out of the exhibition because he took the time to tell us about individual dolls, how they were made, what they were made out of, the processes involved and the artist that made them. A lot of the dolls were not really to our taste, but there were a few that really stood out, one in particular, a life size figure of a Chinese man is so realistic it is incredible, and another again life size of a little boy, there are dolls here made out of all sorts of materials, felt, porcelain and paper mâché. The owner also gives you a demonstration of how the dolls are made and the time and skill involved in making them, the highlight for me being the hand-blown glass eyeballs which are freakishly realistic. The garden here is also lovely, full of birds, butterflies and scented flowers. There is also a little cafe where you can sit and drink coffee and look at the owners restoration photos of the finca which are incredible. We came here thinking it probably wasn't our cup of tea, but because of the owners passion came away with a new found appreciation of this art form.
