Doll House Museum

Posted by barb on Jul 18, 2003 in Around DC |

I found out about the Washington Dolls’ House and Toy Museum at the miniatures show I went to in April, and I thought that Maggie would be the perfect person to take. (I wasn’t so sure that Andrew would enjoy it.) Wow! The museum takes up 7 large rooms in what seems to be an old house in Chevy Chase MD (just across the border into DC). But this represents only half of the Flora Gill Jacobs’ collection.

Our plan was to grab lunch and head off to the International Spy Museum after the doll house museum. However, on our way to lunch, I pointed out to Maggie that there was a secret option #2. “What is secret option #2?” Maggie asked. “We could go home.” I replied. I could see Maggie’s face light up a bit. While I think we could have made it through the museum, I’m not so sure either of us would have gotten much out of it.

So, instead we went home after lunch at The Cheesecake Factory (we split a sandwich so we could each have a slice of cheesecake, of course). We spent the evening finishing tiling our mosaics.
