The North Carolina Museum of Dolls, Toys & Miniatures will have its official re-opening on Saturday.

After being closed for nearly 16 months, the museum says it’s thrilled to be celebrating its grand re-opening on a day called “World Doll Day.”

Traditionally, the day is commemorated by giving away or sharing dolls and is a favorite for people of all age groups. World Doll Day celebrates dolls as tokens of sharing and love.

In honor of World Doll Day, the North Carolina Museum of Dolls, Toys and Miniatures will be giving a free international doll away to every visitor. Light refreshments will be served from 12-3 p.m. All COVID-19 safety and guidelines will be followed.
