Museums with Izannah Walker Dolls - The Strong National Museum of Play
Next Monday my family and I are loading up the van to head from Maine to Rochester, New York, where the Strong National Museum of Play is. It's about a 12 hour drive from here. After reading the rave reviews, I am very excited to take my boys there. It is thrilling that a place that has 8 Izannah Walker dolls is also a great place to visit with my children and husband! Something for everyone. :-) I'm looking forward to going to the Dancing Wings Butterfly Garden.
When I get back, I will write a detailed review of our visit there. In the meantime, if you are within driving distance of one of the museums in the sidebar, or have been to one of them, please send in a review of your visit.
If you can't drive to the Strong Museum, you can see the kinds of dolls they have in the book A Celebration of American Dolls from the Collections of the Strong Museum. I own this book and it is a fun one to curl up with at night with a cup of tea.
