Good news, doll lovers. Doll museum in Jaipur has been reopened to the general public. The museum was set up in 1974 for the purpose to bring forth the diverse cultures of India and the world through the display of dolls.

It was closed down three years back for restoration and now exhibits over 250 dolls from all over the world. The museum was inaugurated on Feb 25 by its restorer Mr. S.S. Bhandari.

The collection includes dolls showcasing the state specific bridal outfits, Egyptian dolls, dolls representing various Asian countries, student life in India, and so on.

The ambience of the museum has also been modified with new marble flooring, air-conditioned rooms, and dust free environment to prevent deterioration of the dolls. The dolls are made of different materials like rubber, Plaster of Paris, clay, etc. They are being purchased from various places of the world and are kept in beautiful glass showcases in the museum.
