Exciting News

“We’re on the Move”
The National Black Doll Museum of History and Culture is about to embark on an exciting transformation – and we wanted our members and supporters to know right from the start!

Effective June 30th, The NBDMHC is leaving our site at 288 North Main St. in Mansfield after eight remarkable years. We have been hoping for some time to move to a bigger site, and the COVID-closure has given us the moment to make this move.

The forthcoming change in our building is only one of many changes we’re undertaking to become a bigger, better, more impactful museum. But, rest assured: our mission will not change! We will still exist to nurture self-esteem, promote diversity, and celebrate the art and history of Black dolls. We will continue to tell Black History through the eyes of a doll collector. We will exist to be a “place for all people” where important discussions can take place and community can grow.
