A truly incredible selection of world-renowned designers have magnificently fashioned breathtaking outfits for every possible occasion—all of them modeled by the 11.5 inch fashion icon herself. Admission is free. Designers on display include Christian Dior, Donna Karan, Armani, Ralph Laurent, Vera Wang, Bill Blass, Oscar de la Renta, Christian Louboutin, Zac Posen, Carolina Herrera, Bob Mackie, and many other authentic fashion all-stars!

Barbie Through the Years
Dec. 2020
If you like Barbie, if she was, or is, a part of your childhood - take a look! This is not the Barbie I remember, and is exactly the Barbie I remember! It is a small exhibit to walk around in, but Barbie is after all, small.
But in this small space there are soooooo many Barbies, beautiful, stunning, varied..........and a nice display of the newer "every shape" Barbie. You can't help but enjoy the memories as you connect to the vast array; TV shows, famous personalities, gorgeous gowns and everyday styles over many decades. I don't think I have ever taken so many pics in just one place, and enjoyed it so much.

a great place to spend an hour looking at the various barbies through time. Seeing the various outfits and collaborations is great. Make sure you leave a donation to keep this free entrance display going

Mad crazy Collection

This was tucked away at the mall and was a great way to spend a rainy day. Huge collection of iconic looks, historic fashion and figures. Even my teen sons found it highly engaging.

So much fun!

A must see for any and all Barbie lovers! This expo is bang smack in the middle of a shopping mall which seems a little random, but it’s so worth the visit. The morning I went it was completely empty- just me and all those Barbies! There are so many of them, from different celebrities, to traditional national dress and a full-on fashion show. So many cool Barbies to see and loads of fun. Lots of nostalgia for me and fab for kids too! Highly recommend checking it out.

If you're downtown, you really should drop by the Barbie expo. It's free and there are some real gems on display - even a Star Trek Barbie collection. Don't forget to get your photo taken in the Barbie box!

Barbies in all shapes and sizes
Feb. 2020
A delightful display of many Barbies, of all shapes and sizes and ethnicities. Displays of movie scenes, bridal Barbies, active Barbies, etc..
Benches for parents to sit on while kids can enjoy the Barbie details, in a somewhat contained area

Fun, Self-paced and Free Barbie Display (October 2018)
Oct. 2019
This is a quick display of more Barbie Dolls than you will ever see in one place. Some of dolls are placed into location sets such as a fashion show or city street. The fashion show display has a moving runway with dolls modeling clothes and an audience. There are flashing lights also which look like pictures are being taken by photographers. There are theme dresses such as cultural displays, holiday dresses, wedding gowns, etc. Children can get a picture taken in a booth (no experience in the booth) but looked like a fun addition for a child. You can spend hours here or skim through in less than 30 minutes. There is no charge. It is located in a small shopping mall. This display is very professionally presented.
