The Rotary Dolls Museum ( RDM ) is located in the city of Rajkot, State of Gujarat , India (South Central Asia.). This unique Museum gives an overview to the culture and traditions of the world at large through a medium of dolls. The Rotary Clubs across the world have generously donated these Dolls to the Rotary Club of Rajkot Midtown. This vision was conceived in 2001 by the Rotarian Mr. Deepak Agrawal. To view in detail the path from conception to the birth on this Rotary Dolls Museum, click here. While the vision has been to create a Dolls Museum where children and adults both gain from, the mission has been yet noble and simple, Love, Care and Concern for Humanity.
In today’s technological age, when we talk of the world being a “Global Village”, we effectively have brought the world under one roof in this Museum with more than 1600+ ethnic and traditional dolls from over 102 countries across the globe. The dolls are showcased with window dressing replicating the place from where it hails. This is a gesture of Tender Loving Care for the Dolls which should not feel out of place having travelled so much to reach the City of Rajkot.
This International & Community service activity – The Dolls Museum houses its doll collection, and maintains permanent archives of historical documents related to dolls for the study and enjoyment of members and the viewing public. The Museum supports various creative activities for children and helps adults with information on various countries, different languages and business prospects abroad
