The Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls & Toys is a gem in Colorado. This museum set in the historical Pearce-McAllister Cottage is based off of the Dutch-Colonial Revival movement and features dolls, toys and collectibles in Denver. Just minutes away from Downtown Denver, DMMDT features miniature houses, trains, planes, cars and circuses, Japanese dolls, giant teddy bears, Southwest homes, artisan miniatures and more.
Every three months, the temporarily exhibit changes and there is a club case of private collections of Denver club members that rotates out as well. After a day of fun looking at miniature toys and antique dolls, relax with an afternoon tea in the Oak and Berries Tea Room for $20 per person, which includes admission. This is a popular tea in Denver to take part in.
For those interested in crafting their own miniatures and dolls, the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls & Toys offers many workshops that are $7 and under. Create your own tiny gnomes and fairies, multicultural dolls, folk dolls and puppets. Visitors can also make their own science toys, masks, miniature rooms and landscapes through one of these workshops too.
Don’t forget to stop by the gift shop where you can start or add to your own Colorado collection of miniatures, toys and more.
The Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys is located at 1880 Gaylord Street, Denver, CO 80206.
