The World Doll Museum introduces the life and culture of various villages around the world through their traditional dolls. It is exhibiting some 1,000 dolls from 80 countries. These dolls tell of the exotic lives of various countries and festival sites as well as culture and history. The museum is also offering lectures such as “A world cultural travel with dolls” as well as experience-oriented learning for students and general public such as making “Russian Matryoshka,” “German Nutcrackers,” “Cloth hand dolls,” and “Finger dolls.”
