Dolls Collection at the Kerala Museum

The story goes that in the year 2000, Trustee of the Madhavan Nayar Foundation, Brigadier RB Nayar, felt that school children who come to the Kerala Museum would really appreciate an exhibit with dolls.

He shot off a letter to Shankar’s Dolls Museum in New Delhi, requesting assistance in its setting up. They promptly responded by kindly sending us a collection of Dolls of India for the enjoyment of children in Kerala. These beautiful miniatures depict the regional communities in their traditional attire.
