    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

    Name the country and you will find the dolls. Thousands of dolls across the world depicting their culture & tradition. Good place to visit with kids. Prime location adjacent to Herald House, Passport Seva office. Parking available, metro also available at door step. Photos not allowed officially but still some visitors try to click with cell phones. In-house canteen not available.

    This is a self funded museum with 6500 dolls from various countries. The ticket price is very nominal. Recommended visitors are girls and children. They love dolls and so would museum.

    Lots of dolls from across the world. Speaks of a time when India had a place among the nations of the world. Great place for kids to learn about the cultures of lesser known countries other than the US centric West.

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
