Description

This museum started with the help of Indira Gandhi when she was impressed and inspired by an exhibition hosted by the cartoonist, K. Shankar Pillai. The museum was finally set up with numerous dolls that were collected by Shankar from the various countries he visited. Later on great people, ranging from queens to presidents and ministers started gifting dolls to be preserved in the museum. Now it houses dolls that represent various, countries, identities, cultures and ideologies.
