The Toy and Doll Museum provides a glimpse into the past of what entertained and educated children in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The museum has nine rooms of various displays containing vintage toys, dolls, dollhouses and collectibles for all ages. Each room has a specific central theme such as the Circus Rm., International Doll Rm., a Library, Transportation/Christmas Rm., Children's Play Rm and a Display Rm which rotates new displays every two years. There is something for all generations to view and appreciate. Group tours of 10 or more may be arranged by appointment. Museum is open May-Oct.
