What You'll Get
Some cultures believe that dolls contain the spirit of their likenesses, which explains why stuffed animals displayed beside Teddy Roosevelt figurines tend to end up on plaques. Find your scaled-down alter ego with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get admission for two to The Enchanted Mansion (up to a $9 value). Admission for children 12 and younger is $2, and admission for seniors 55 and older is $3.50.
The Enchanted Mansion whisks guests away to a storybook land of diminutive proportions, where fairies and first ladies alike commingle in a series of themed display rooms. Tucked into a picturesque Southern setting, the quaint mansion houses a diverse collection of hundreds of dolls dating back to the pre-Revolutionary era. The building’s deceptive three-story façade gives way to a single floor filled with oversized furnishings to promote tolerance for persecuted porcelain by making guests feel doll-sized themselves. Presidential dolls hold forth on foreign policy and puppet regimes in the White House room, and childlike figurines develop literacy in the storybook room as an antique collection watches proudly nearby.
The Enchanted Mansion was founded in 1994 to support the TDS Memorial Foundation, which funds services for the handicapped. To ensure that resident dolls never lack for social opportunities, special exhibits change frequently and currently include a display of royal dolls inspired by the wedding of Prince William.
