Doll Hospital

Since 1830.

Before there were cars, and old lady sat at the door of her store, next to a market, making rag dolls. D. Carlota welcomed the children walking with their parents and grandparents that took the chance to look at the dolls she was making and repairing. And the Doll Hospital was born.

At this space that can - and should! - be visited by the young and the old, there's restoration, miniatures, toys and clothing, hairpieces and shoes for the dolls. The Doll Hospital is a special place, and some people say, "If I were a doll, I'd like to live here".

The Museum houses a fabulous collection of toys that take us back in time, and it's impossible not to feel some nostalgia when visiting it. The Doll Hospital invites us to discover the traditions in the games of children that are now adults, and it shows us that it's possible to get back our favorite childhood doll.

Cool Tip: The Doll Hospital also makes seasonal costumes for various events.
