The Arizona Doll and Toy Museum is situated in an old house right next to the science center. The house, called the Stevens-Haustgen house, was built 1901 and is a perfect place to display a big collection of lovely old dolls. It costs $5 to tour the museum's four rooms, which seemed like a good deal to me. All in all, I think I had about a half an hour to spend looking around, and this wasn't quite enough. It would have been ideal to have twice that much time so that I could read all of the identification cards and maybe learn a thing or two about my very favorite dolls. Because I was a bit rushed (and also distractedly excited by rooms filled with dolls...), I forgot to take a picture of the outside of the museum. So, I'll just go ahead and start with a picture of my favorite display:
