Door of Hope: Women in History
The Door of Hope dolls tell an inspiring story of how a group of women set out to change the future of young Chinese girls in 1900’s Shanghai – a great reason to celebrate International Women’s Day at MINT Museum of Toys. Learn about the women-led missionary, Door of Hope, and how they created opportunities for destitute young women and forsaken girls, including the Door of Hope doll project, which was one of the many initiatives that was introduced.
Today, more than 150 pieces of the Door of Hope dolls make up part of MINT Museum of Toys collection, some of which are displayed as part of the exhibition. View the quality and condition of each hand-made doll, and understand the significance of these toys as more than mere playthings.
Door of Hope: Women in History is located on Level 3, Childhood Favourites and is complimentary with regular museum admission.
