Rothenburg Doll and Toy Museum Permanently closed

After charming thousands of adults and children for more than two decades, the museum collection has been auctioned off and the museum closed permanently. It will be missed.

This museum has an incredible collection of dolls in all sizes, from miniatures to life size. These are not your typical Barbie dolls - although they have those too.

Visit this place if you enjoy dolls and antique toys. Wonderful selection set up in quaint rooms, take teenagers or well behaved small children. Enjoy the Barbie room, large scale doll house, carriages, and more.

The museum, while open, was an interesting spot, full of the antique dolls for which the region is known.Unfortunately, the owner became older, the rents increased and she finally closed and the dolls were auctioned off about 6 months ago.

Try to make sure to have some... More

I must admit that we went to this attraction becuase my parents were visiting and my mom wanted to go. It wouldn't have been on the travelling agenda if not for that sole purpose. My mom (the reason we were there) loved it. The rest in the party (my dad, myself, and my wife and daughter) enjoyed the first few... More
