Apparently there are normally antique dolls on display but on our visit an Exhibition of Dolls from all over the world was there for viewing. This Exhibition lasts until 22nd. June 2013 The Exhibition is... More

There was a great collection of dolls from all over the world but none of the porcelain European dolls my daughter was expecting to see. That was our last day in Paris and something she was looking forward to so it was a bit of a disappointment. Wish I had read the other review to go to the shop next... More

Find out what the exhibit is BEFORE you visit. The day I went there was nothing but cheap little dolls in costumes from various countries. I was expecting some porcelain antiques or composition vintage dolls, but there was NONE. The shop next door (which is free) did have some. Save your money and just go to the shop.

We visited this small museum with our eight year old daughters who loved the displays of hundreds of dolls and accessories. This museum would appeal equally to the serious doll afficionado as to children young and old. The history of dolls and doll making is accurately charted and workshops are avilable to children on Wednesdays. This isn't a big place... More

Visiting small museums can add so much to your visit to Paris. This is lovely small museum in a slightly out of the way location, Le Muee de la Poupee is well worth visiting. It is easy to get to as the Metro is right on the corner. While the exhibition space can use some serious updating the dolls are... More

This museum has an impressive collection of antique porcelain dolls displayed in a series of twenty-some window scenes that move roughly through chronological and stylistic sequence. Each window is accompanied by a paragraph in French and English that describing the dolls and gives a little information on their background. I found this form of display and the labeling of the...

This museum is small but has a beautiful collection of antique dolls. There's quite a collection of Barbies, as well, which was fun to see. My daughter and I both enjoyed it.

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
