I was delighted to find, not only Dorothy's ruby slippers, Abe Lincoln's hat and Kermit the frog, but dollhouses - lots of them.
This picture is Faith Bradford's dollhouse. There was such a crowd around it it was hard to get close enough to see all the rooms.
It was fun to watch the children examine each room carefully, off in a world of their imagination. What dreams they must be having now.
I heard one little boy say. "Wow, that's even bigger than Grandma's dollhouse", and I smiled, wondering if he belonged to someone in this community.
I remarked to a young mother how cute her daughter was - engrossed in the tiny details and oblivious to everything else. "She just got her own dollhouse." the mother said, smiling back.
Back at my desk today I was delighted to discover the museum has a section of their website devoted to this lovely house. The pictures blow up nice and big and clear. I can actually see more details on the website than I could in person. They even offer a virtual tour of each floor.
Have a look. Click here and you will see what I mean. Happy exploring!
