Little doll quilt

Today we did a  35 minute visit at the County Museum in The Hague.
This is the advantage of having
":museumcards". The museumcard give you free access to a lot of museums in the Netherlands, and you can go as often if you want. The county museum is a very big museum, feels like a kind of maze when you're walking around. I totally lost track. Lucky I had my DH with me.

 We had to made choices and visited the "doll houses" exhibition and we went to the "wonderrooms". I could only find one little doll quilt. (All the other pictures are from the website of the museum.)

Especially in the 17th and 18th century people spend a lot of money of decorating dollhouses. The exhibition shows dollhouses from several European countries, and even one from China. The 25th march is the last day of the exhibition. So hurry if you're a fan of dollhouses.
The wonderrooms is something you just have to experience. We just visited only 1 of the 6 rooms, and it was full of funny "junk".

A nice way to spend a grey and cloudy sunday in the Netherlands.

This looks very nice. I won't make it to the dollhouse exhibit, but another time. Those museakarten are heel "handy". Glad it was a good outing for you.
