Spencer Doll and Toy Museum on ‘North Carolina Weekend’ tonight

UNC TV producer Stephanie Bourland visited North Carolina’s only non-profit doll and toy museum, Spencer Doll and Toy Museum, to feature it on UNC TV’s “North Carolina Weekend.”
Bourland spent a full day in the museum filming one-of-a-kind exhibits and talking with visitors. Bourland, who works directly with “North Carolina Weekend” TV show host, Deborah Holt Noel, agreed that the new museum is one of the best things to “see and do” across the state.
“North Carolina Weekend” is the weekly show which helps people find out about all the places to visit across the state. Join other viewers today and Friday as they journey into the sights and sounds of the museum. The show airs tonight at 9 p.m. and Friday at 8:30 p.m.
Doll exhibits include dolls made from cloth, wood, papier mache, china, metal, bisque, celluloid, wax, plastic and finally vinyl. Tinker Toys, model trains and trucks, and cap guns are just a few examples of toys on display at the museum. Exhibits rotate quarterly, featuring different themes.
The 18-month-old museum is located at 108 Fourth St. in Spencer. For more information and holiday hours visit www.spencerdollandtoymuseum.com or call 704 762 9359. You can also email info@spencerdollandtoymuseum.com.
