Hello Dolly, You’re Looking Swell Dolly…

Did you know doll collecting is one of the most popular hobbies in the United States? Did you also know that the Enchanted World Doll Museum is one of the top doll museums in the world and is located in Mitchell, South Dakota directly across the street from the Corn Palace? The museum houses over 4,100 dolls in 400 setting ranging from a gala royal wedding to humble Amish dolls in front of a log cabin. They have antique dolls from the early 1800’s and yes, they even have a display of Cabbage Patch Kids. Valerie LaBreche (she's a real doll) greeted me at the entrance and will answer any questions you have concerning the museum. RV Parking is FREE and plentiful near the Corn Palace and Doll Museum. A fee is charged: $5 adults, $4 seniors, $2.50 students 6-18, and kids 6 and under are free. The museum is a non-profit organization and the profits are reinvested in the museum for its upkeep and growth. If you like dolls you’ll love this place. Jim Twamley
