If you want to go through American history and heritage with your little ones, you can think of going to The Great American Dollhouse Museum. This is a specially designed museum which aims to showcase the old days of the United States of America in a miniature yet detailed form. Three prime areas of the country get depicted in the exhibition hall of the museum and that are Old West, Native American through Colonial and early Southwest and modern eras. You can spot realistically made Chest of drawers, room box, Poppy's Cottage, French style gilt console table and armchairs, Versailles Hunting Lodge and more here. From the museum’s shop, you can buy some interesting goodies for your closed ones.

The Great American Dollhouse Museum Reviews & Ratings
Charming and Delightfully Unexpected! I visited the Great American Dollhouse Museum today with my 11 year old son. We had the BEST time! He thought he was going to be bored but he ended up being delighted with all of the details in all of the exhibits as was I! There is a section on American History, a few towns put together with amazing Houses and even a section with Dragons, Trolls and Fairies! I even heard that they will have an 8ft Castle on Display! I can't wait to go back and see it all again so that I can find more details I may have missed the first time! One of the best aspects of the place is that there is a shop where one can buy anything doll house or miniatures related in person! That is so rare!! WORTH the Trip even if you have any kind of interest in hand made things, antiques or miniatures.
My husband and I went to the dollhouse museum because it seemed like a quirky, interesting thing to do(yes, my husband is a really good sport, but we do love opportunities to make fun of things). We ended up spending more than 2 hours scouring the exhibits, taking pictures, and talking about how amazing the dollhouses are. The detail is insane! You will not regret going. Older kids might like it, but it's really not a place for the little ones...they really won't be able to appreciate it, and the exhibits are set up higher than they will be able to see. Make sure to do the scavenger hunt...not easy, but fun. I definitely recommend!
So enjoyed the doll house museum. I could go a hundred times and see something new each time. Lori was very pleasant and fun to talk with. Do investigative the shop. Lots of interesting and hard to find items. Very reasonably priced. A wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Great for young and old. Male and female.
This was a wonderful and unique place. A must see when visiting Kentucky. You don't want to miss this artistic whimsical,place.
A lot of reviewers are recommending this place for fans of miniatures, but I'd also recommend it (perhaps even more so) for people who don't know much about dollhouses. That was me before visiting, and I was astonished by the skill with which these houses (and all the props inside) are built and arranged! I had no idea how every mundane detail of a kitchen pantry, or weathered exterior, is perfectly replicated. And using dollhouses to tell hidden stories of American history is a clever framework for showing off the collection. All genders and ages can get something from this place, all you need is an appreciation for craftsmanship.
