City Hunter: The Museum of Unique Dolls
October 7, 2011 11:27


The Doll of Heir Tutti from the Russian movie "The Three Fat Men"

The Museum of Unique Dolls in Moscow has appeared in 1996 thanks to Yulia Vishnevskaya, a scenic artist, whose private collection is the core of the exposition. Even though there is only one room, it is full of antique dolls made in France, Germany, England, Russian and Japan. 
The exbitis are mainly made of wood, wax and porcelain and some of them are very fragile. One of the oldest dolls here is a wooden figure of baby Jesus in the crown of thorns. This collection will tell you about the doll making in the XVII-XX centuries by presenting “ladies” from the past, their clothes and accessories.
Here you can find toys that differ in size, appearance and purpose, for which they were created – human size interior dolls, boudoir dolls to decorate beds, character dolls, Japanese dolls in the temple and even the Swedish doll with a three-faced head.
There is also a large collection of clothes, shoes, hats, umbrellas and jewelries. The fact is that dolls in the past were like little ladies. Couturiers made dresses for them and fashion doll magazines were published.
Another surprise for a visitor – doll's houses and dolls-jukeboxes. The first ones reproduce the real buildings, like, for example, an English wooden house of the 1850. The second are the rarities of the museum. A knitting granny and an acrobat, rising up on his hands, are the old jukeboxes – a valuable part of the exposition. You can watch the moving dolls here. 
You can also find several works of Russian artists and the most attractive is made by Valentina Malakhieva the Doll of Heir Tutti from the old soviet movie “The Three Fat Men”.
The Museum of Unique Dolls is worth to be seen. It is a beautiful cultural place in the historical centre of Moscow.
Except the main activities, the staff organizes children’s holidays, parties, excursions for russian and foreign visitors.
The price of the ticket is 120 rubles per person.
Address: Pokrovka Street, 13/2, 101000, Moscow.
How to reach: by the Metro to the stations “Turgenevskaya” , “Chistye Prudy” , “Kitay-Gorod” .
