Welcome to the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys!

The Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys (DMMDT) was founded in 1981 through the support of a grass-roots community coalition of miniature doll artists, business owners, and civic leaders. From 1981 to 1987 volunteers managed the museum with no paid staff or public facility and its exhibits were presented throughout the community. In the fall of 1987, in cooperation with the Colorado Historical Society, the museum opened at its present location, the Pearce-McAllister Cottage.

During the last year, DMMDT has been an organization in transition. Building on a great volunteer base, great programming and a 25 year history, we wish to become even better. The board adopted a strategic plan in May 2006 and under the board's leadership the organization is moving in a direction of financial and operational transparency, professionalism and community involvement.

Missions and Goals

The mission of the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys (DMMDT) is to provide educational and cultural services to the greater Rocky Mountain region through the preservation, exhibition, collection and interpretation of the visual arts using miniatures, dolls and toys.

Our major goals, which we believe will help us best carry out our mission, are:

  • To create educational exhibits with relevance to the lives of Museum visitors and members highlighting the social and cultural history of miniatures, dolls and toys
  • To provide arts education to all children of the greater Denver area while working especially hard to reach those children who would normally not have an opportunity to engage in arts education
  • To establish ongoing education within the organization and the creation of a culture of learning
  • To be a consistent resource to our community
  • To increase involvement of local doll, miniature and toy clubs.
  • To diversify our funding sources.
