  • 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.

  • It's a small museum that holds true especially for its atmosphere and the Nice impasse in which it is installed, facing cute Anne Frank square. If you are a collector of dolls, this place is for you (there is a sales show room). If you are looking for an offbeat atmosphere of horror movie (as was my case), this place is for you!

  • 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
