Help the City of Rock Island celebrate the American Doll & Toy Museum, with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday Feb 12 at 11 a.m.

The American Doll & Toy Museum, now located at 1303 30th Street #2 Rock Island (the former Vintage Rose Store), will be finding a new home this year at a currently vacant Rock Island library. Executive Direction, Ellen Tsagaris, will have her collection of dolls which represent many roles throughout history on display.

In addition to an impressive collection of dolls and toys, American Doll & Toy Museum offers small gift items with their museum logo, small dolls and antique items, craft bags, seasonal items, books, vintage figurines and toys, small trucks and action figures. They have a reasonable price range, with lots of things for kids.
