More from The Great American Dollhouse Museum

More photos, as promised. The museum layout includes a timeline of American history as well as Copper Town (both sides of the tracks) and an enchanted forest. There's no set way to go through it. One just wanders, as one might when exploring a new town in real life. There is a map on the museum website. The layout is evolving and isn't quite like the map, but it will give you an idea of the various sections.
The first photo shows a doctor's office on the "other side of the tracks". Also on the other side of the tracks is a boarding house. A mother tucks her child into bed before heading off to her job in a factory. She admonished the child to be very quiet so as not to attract the attention of the landlady, as the rent is overdue.
Interior of a house in the part of town with comfy homes. Wish I could recall which one it is. Poke the picture for a really good look at some wonderfully detailed furnishings.
A scene in the park.
A gypsy wagon in the park.
Another park view.
A boys' prep school.
A general view of the displays. To the left, the city park. On the right, a block of elegant homes.
A modern house in the American history timeline. There's a lot to see here. A nanny is trying to control some unruly children who have left messes throughout the house.
A lovely deck beside the modern house.
A glitzy room box with a mirrored background.
One of four Brooke Tucker room boxes in the museum.

The other Brook Tucker room box. What a great way to give a scene a sense of place: the photo mural on the back walls.

That's all for now. Another round of photos in the next post.
