The Museum of Dolls was founded by the Preiļi artist and museum owner Jeļena Mihailova, who within a year’s time has managed to create 150 dolls. All of them are original artworks, made single-handedly by the artist herself.
The dolls are displayed in different interiors, each of them having their own story to tell. It is a most interesting and nice place to visit with the family, children or friends. As suggested by Irēna, Head of the Tourism Information Centre in Preiļi: "It cannot be described in words, you have to see it!" The proof is evident in the pictures where Irēna herself appears in a court-lady’s dress inviting to visit Preiļi.
