BROWSE Dolls, Games and Toys
In 1962, Ann and Henry Brunnier pledged to Iowa State a collection of dolls and decorative arts amassed over fifty-five years. The donation included a comprehensive European, North American and Asian doll collection. Ann’s total collection included more than 4,000 objects, filling two semi-trucks. Since this original donation, the doll collection has been carefully curated to include some of the best of Ann’s collection. Victorian era games and toys are also in this collection, many of which are on display at the Farm House Museum.
