Colonial Williamsburg: Dollhouses at the Art Museums

We went to Colonial Williamsburg for spring break and I was really hoping we'd be able to visit the art musems (specifically the Dewitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum and see the dollhouses), but I doubted that we would have time.  

Ironically (and fortuitiously for me), the museum cafeteria turned out to be the only place that offered lunch without a 2 hour wait!

I should have taken more pictures, but here are two beautiful dollhouses. 

I like to read the history of dollhouses and how they have been loved.

And here is the Morris-Rushford dollhouse


  1. So pretty! Hope you had a good time!

  2. Isn't it lovely that it was passed along the family from 1820 and each owner added to it? I hope my miniatures enjoy the same longevity and love :0)

    1. Yes, I hope the same. That's also what I really liked about that story, but then I got a bit sad that it was in the museum and not being played with. But I figured that there were no more children and then it was better in the museum for all to admire.
