We opened Memorial Hall for the 2024 season with Barbie – All Dolled Up in Deerfield, one of our three special exhibits this year. All Dolled Up covers an entire wall in the museum’s Costume Gallery to showcase this collection of 58 stunning designer Barbie Dolls from Bob Mackie, Christian Dior, Oscar de la Renta, and more.

Barbie is terrific “material culture” that captures a piece of mid-20th to early 21st centuries history. She has a story to tell, like the many dolls from over the centuries we display. Also, visit the 3rd floor gallery to view our collection of doll treasures from the past and present.
