Walking into the new Doll and Toy Gallery will suggest a stroll past a series of enchanting shop windows. Visitors will be surrounded by tall glass cases filled with playthings of past and present. The imaginative and colorful toys on display will represent a wide range of cultures from around the globe.

A special focus of this new gallery is A Palace for Wednesday, long a beloved stopping place in the Museum for children and adults. Created by artist Alice Hudson out of “twigs, leaves, cloth and magic,“ A Palace for Wednesday is now displayed in new, contemporary casework.
