"Superb doll collection!"

Anyone who has ever played with dolls will love the Angela Peterson Doll and Miniature Museum, adjacent to the furniture center. Here you will find one of the greatest collections of dolls anywhere. It features more than 2,500 dolls, miniatures, and artifacts from around the world. This exquisite collection took more than fifty years of travel to put together, and Angela Peterson made many of the costumes, shadow boxes, and dollhouses herself.

As you enter the main gallery you’ll see dozens of glass cases filled with china dolls, along with dolls made of papier-mâché, wax, and tin, some dating back to the 1800s. A 3-foot-high Shirley Temple doll may prompt some stories from Grandma. Among the most interesting in the collection are an unusual doll made of seaweed and the dressed fleas you have to look at under a magnifier. And don’t forget the more modern collection of Barbie dolls and the Pillsbury Doughboy.
