About us

The North Carolina Museum of Dolls, Toys & Miniatures, a non-profit organization, is dedicated to the preservation, education, conservation, collecting and appreciation of dolls, toys and miniatures.

The NCMDTM was founded in 2012 by the Morris and Nance families to honor their daughter/sister, Amy Dawn Morris. Amy, a passionate collector of dolls and miniatures, succumbed to Werdnig-Hoffman Disease (also known as Spinal Muscular Atrophy) just two weeks shy of her 22nd birthday.

The Museum opened its doors in her honor featuring her cherished collection of dolls and miniatures. Today, the Museum collection has grown to include thousands of items, most donated by collectors who wish to preserve their childhood artifacts.
