  • The ticket is for Rs. 10 for people above the age of 17. Free entry for below 17. You need to buy an additional ticket of Rs. 15 if you want to click photographs. There are magnificent dolls from around the world. The museum is best for kids. They can get know about the people all over the world from the dolls. Then dolls also reflect the Indian society very well.
  • Such an amazing experiences. So many bridal dolls representationg each part of India as well as many other countries as well. must visit for children. There is an open air theatre too in which you can relax and watch performances if any in open day light. Click many pictures . It will be an breathtaking experience.
  • Cultural diversity which people of every age will connect to...To express culture through dolls is undoubtedly very unique concept...one feels so much home here.. Ethnicity depiction at its best is what i would say...
  • Needs maintenance. While it might not be easy but the dolls have started looking shabby. Need to keep on updating otherwise it will loose its value. Also boards describe the state or country nothing about the dolls or dresses they are wearing
  • INTERNATIONAL DOLLS MUSEUM – CHANDIGARH Chandigarh, the capital city of Punjab and Haryana, serves as the adobe of a number of tourist attractions, some of which are well-renowned across the country. The city is best known for its magnificent temples, parks and museums. The place witnesses the inflow of hundreds of tourists from every nook and corner of India and even abroad, every year. International Dolls Museum is one of the hotspots of Chandigarh. Established in 1985, the museum is located at Bal Bhawan, in Sector 23, Chandigarh.

As many as 300 different kinds of dolls collected from Denmark, Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Korea and Russia, are displayed in the museum, which is simply a visual delight for kids. Ten murals of the important landmarks of different countries with coloured blowups form the backdrop for the exhibition of dolls. International Dolls Museum brings an insight into the cultural ethnicity of India, through its separate section dedicated to dolls that depict the popular dance forms of India. Kids would also be spell-bound by the dolls that depict famous story characters, like Aladdin and his Magic Lamp, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Ali Baba and Forty Thieves and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
