Our Collection

UFDC Museum Collection

UFDC’s museum and archival collections are located at our Kansas City, Missouri Headquarters.

The UFDC Doll Museum houses a wide variety of dolls in both permanent and rotating displays. The dolls offer endless opportunities for study and enjoyment. Learning about dolls offers insight into the history of childhood and historical periods.

Various materials have been used to make dolls over the years and examples in the museum include wood, wax, papier mache, china, cloth, parian, bisque, composition, rubber, plastic, and vinyl. The age of dolls on display varies widely and includes examples from the 1700s to modern dolls of today.

Dolls dressed in original clothes provide the opportunity to study original costuming, while those that are redressed may inspire you to dress your own doll. Our French Fashion collection may be of special interest to dressmakers as it offers an extensive selection of dolls with wardrobes to study.

Whether you are interested in studying dolls of a certain era or just admiring them, we hope you will be glad you decided to visit us.
