NC Museum of Dolls, Toys & Miniatures

The NC Museum of Dolls, Toys & Miniatures is a remarkable, must-see destination for
families with children, collectors, scholars, and anyone interested in the history,
evolution, and future of childhood playthings. 
Located just 30 miles northeast of Charlotte, in Spencer, NC, the NCMDTM has been
recognized as one of 35 of North Carolina’s Most Unforgettable Museums. The Museum is
the only one of its kind in NC, and one of only a handful of nonprofit museums of its type
in the nation.
