PENINSULA LETTERS: Doll exhibit pleases all ages and genders

Many thanks to all those people at the museum who worked to put on what we think was one of the best family exhibits ever

Recently, my family visited the Sidney Museum with the intent of seeing the doll exhibit.

The group of us were varied in age from eight to 91-years-old and wondered — would a doll exhibit interest such a mixed age group of both males and females?

It turned out that we all not only had a fun time there, but also an interesting one.

Over 400 dolls were beautifully displayed in the museum.

My mother and I took in the happy memories of years ago, while my husband helped our grandchildren search for particular dolls and objects (one of the contests offered by the museum during the exhibit).

Everyone was busy, entertained and happy!

Many thanks to all those people at the museum who worked to put on what we think was one of the best family exhibits ever.
