  • It's amazing. There are so many kinds of dolls that you might get lost into your childhood. Amazing place for kids. They absolutely love this. There is a library beside it and a bookshop where good children books are sold. All in all best place to spend a day
  • Great place for kids. Dolls from around the world, most of them almost antique now. A wonderful hour can be spent here with the kids.
  • It's an unique place with large collection of dolls, of course there are some shelves empty tried to filled with some picture or act . Also one thing noticeable is all dolls are old ones and lately no new Addison has been done as I couldn't locate Barbie , Ana etc It's seems quite old as plaster is chipping off fe some windows. No clicking of pictures allowed. Kids wish to get photographed with dolls. Will need approx 1hr to see all. Ok
  • Really a lot of dolls, capturing some tradition of particular places. Yours eyes will exhausted as there is more than 3000 dolls here. Must visit with kids. Outside icecream stall available. Near the ito metro station gate no.4 Ticket are less. But u can not click photo by any means. That i really liked.
  • For me its a 4 star place, as im a indian culture history lover. I give it 4 because:- 1) well maintained place. 2) enjoyable place for kids. 3) cleanliness. 4) good place for collecting knowledge of dolls history. 5) good collection of 3000 dolls. 6) but not that interesting that a person who dont love dolls also started loving dolls.
