  • I visited this museum with my grandchildren. I could show them what were my toys when I was small... The game proposed by the Museum was very amusing (observation, deduction...) However, our desire was to participate in a workshop but the Lady at the reception did not consider our entry, result, more room for workshop "doudou" disappointment of my little girl and big grief... her brother was also disappointed because there the wait an hour for nothing...

  • Cute small museum situated in a peaceful location near the Anne Frank garden which blend of many dolls from different eras. Perfect for collectors, but also for children and adults who wish to remember their youth. However it is true that the entry remains dear to the smallness of the Museum (private structure requires I guess).

  • I visited the Museum last year and I was enthralled by the exposed dolls. My two granddaughters were with me and did not stop to ask questions. We were dazzled by the costumes and presentation both Belle Epoque, modern... I came out with the head as a child before Christmas toys.

  • Small private doll museum for doll lovers.
  • Used to go here when I was an Au Pair. The kids loved it, both girls and boys. Great and well organised exhibition, amazing selection and details about the dools and their making. Trip back in time assured! :)
  • I would have appreciated an English translation as well. Perhaps next time I go to Paris?
  • All descriptions are in french only, so you can just enjoy looking the dolls, but with the feeling that you wish you can understand something...
  • Back in childhood that we must preserve. We can't stay insensitive happily that this museum exists .thank you
