National Black Doll Museum of History & Culture

Discover untold stories at the National Black Doll Museum of History and Culture.

The National Black Doll Museum of History and Culture sponsored by the Doll E Daze Project & Museum Inc opened its doors in historic downtown Mansfield , Mass in July of 2012. Rich in culture the museum celebrates black history through the eyes of a doll collector. Dolls are a child’s first introduction to self image, their stories are key elements in our personal heritage. Regardless of one’s cultural background, everyone has a story to tell. African American history is filled with stories of enslaved Africans captured and relocated to a strange land and bravely asserting their own cultures. The history of black dolls is about more than just objects of play. Black dolls have played a critical role in building a diverse American society and rich African American culture. NBDMHC uses their collection along with engaging images and artifacts to illustrate and tell those individual stories.
