Sidney Museum’s Doll Exhibit

Here is an update about the doll exhibit. I’m giving you an article from the local paper where Ginni is explaining the different dolls from the different era’s. I was so happy to get a mention. I am also sharing some of the pictures I took to highlight a few of them. Hopefully the YouTube video at the end will give you even more to enjoy. Most of these are Ginni’s doll collection with the exception of myself and a few other local collectors.

You can click on the newspaper article and hopefully it’s large enough print that you’ll be able to read it.

This cabinet contains the oldest dolls in the show, dating back as far as the late 1800’s.

I loved this display. It reminded me of spending time in the kitchen with my grandmother. Museums are so special. They take you back in time to relive those special times that held so much meaning for you.

There’s even a spot to sit and watch silent movies. They have so much to keep you interested, male and female. The museum does have some military displays, so the men in your life can spend time looking at those.

Here is a link to the YouTube video, just 12 mins. to tour the display with Ginni and Karen Elgersma from our local tv station… I hope you enjoy this. Just in case the video below doesn’t start for you, I’m including the link to YouTube.
