As an avid doll collector and a lover of museums and history I was pleasantly surprised by all this museum had to offer. Very nice, serene place where you can mosey back to your youth. If you like dolls and toys this should be a must when in the Northwestern Phoenix area

No matter what generation you are, if you're 9 or 90 there'll be a toy here for you, a great collection to see and a lovely group of ladies who run the place, well worth a visit.

Short tour, but very enjoyable. Loved the school room with the dolls, reminded me of something my daughter would have set up 20 yrs ago. The lady on the desk was very nice and refered us to Auntie Em's miniatures for more dollhouse inspiration as well as the huge museum in Tucson.

This museum, originally in downtown Phoenix, moved last year. So call before you go as the address is still listed as Phoenix. The museum is housed in a small building and the curator, I believe, is the woman who appears to have procured the items contained within the museum. She has much knowledge and provided a tour of the site.... More

Arizona Doll & Toy Museum has moved to Glendale, located in the historical Catlin Court. They are on a corner directly across from parking for easy access. The gift shop is filled with toys, dolls and books to buy. As you wonder through the building taking in all the display cases filled with amazing dolls, you will discover a room... More

I found this place a bit hard to find...parked on a side street that faced Arizona University, and walked into the heritage complex. Stopped to ask for directions twice and finally found it! The house is tiny and not well marked. Admission was $5.00 and you go at your own pace which I appreciated. Most of the doll collection is... More
