Dolls can be found on first floor of Dunster Museum.(There is a lift for those unable to climb stairs) Numerous showcases packed full of dolls of all descriptions. All very informative and nostalgic. Museum is free.

They love to talk about their collections, or about the town of Dunster. Located right off the High Street. There are a lot of dolls in her, as well as other interesting historical items. There is no charge to enter.

Small interesting Museum. If you are interested in dolls this is a very good place to take a look. Even saw some dolls i remembered from my childhood. Some pieces of local history as well.
