A world of dolls and toys
In the early 1980’s, Antoinette de Rohan discovered the doll collection started by her husband’s great-grandmother, Herminie de Rohan, towards the end of the 19th century.
She immediately realised the interest of this unique collection. It took several more years to research and discover the origin and history of each doll, and to transform the stables into a place to exhibit them. Then, in 1984, the doll museum opened, displaying hundreds of dolls, the earliest dating from the 17th century. Over time and thanks to the generosity of numerous donors, the collection has grown in scope and number, with new dolls, toys and games being added each year. Since 1988, this has made possible temporary annual exhibitions, each created around a different theme.
Numbering nearly 5000 items today, the Rohan collection is considered the most important private collection of dolls and toys in France.
