A museum presenting dolls and toys from the 1800s and 1900s. The collection stretches from the china dolls of the 1860s via Barbie to Star Wars figures of the 1980s.

In addition to dolls, we also have teddy bears and other stuffed toys from names such as Steiff, Hermann and Schuco. On the shelves you will also find wooden horses, cars, trains, games, Elastolin figures, children's clothing, children's books and many dolls' prams of different makes. We also have porcelain dolls from makers such as Simon & Halbig and Armand Marseille, as well as "turtle mark dolls" in different styles. We also have dolls made from other materials such as celluloid, paper-maché, composite, pulp, rubber and vinyl. In the Barbie section of the museum you will find a large collection of Barbie dolls with lots of clothes and accessories, mostly from the 1960s, but also from the 1970s and early 1980s. There are also "Ginger dolls" from the 1950s. In the museum shop you can buy both old and new dolls as well as toys, handmade old fashioned teddy bears, bookmarks, paper dolls and other collectibles. You can even bring your own teddy here for repair.
