About Shankar's International Dolls Museum

At Shankar’s International Dolls Museum, you find 6500 different types of dolls from 85 countries around the world. Located on Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg in the Children’s Book Trust Building, this museum was founded in 1965 with one thousand dolls. This attraction in Delhi is divided into two sections, one having dolls from European countries, the U.S, New Zealand and Australia while the other houses collection from Asia, Middle East and India. There are almost 160 glass cases of over 300 metres long in every section displaying the exhibits brilliantly. Don't take it for any other doll museum as it features some flabbergasting elements. The Samurai dolls from Japan, the Women’s Orchestra dolls from Thailand, the Kandy Pehara from Sri Lanka and the Spanish bullfighting figurines are the highlights of this museum. You can also see over 150 Indian dolls representing the culture and tradition of the country here. Interestingly, a doll clinic is established in the complex to fix worn out and damaged dolls.
