The World’s Largest Collection Of Dolls Dressed Like Nuns Is In Michigan
The Nun Doll Museum on the grounds of the National Shrine of the Cross in the Woods in Indian River, Michigan, and it’s exactly what it sounds like: a museum for dolls dressed up like nuns: and is worth a look on your way to the Upper Peninsula, Mackinac City or while on a fall color tour. This is also one of those Michigan side trips that are free.
There are 525 dolls and 20 mannequins, with 217 different habits or vestments represented.
According to the museum website, this is how it all started.
The collection is the work of just two people, Wally and Sally Rogalski. Back in the 1940s when she was still a young girl, Sally started dressing her dolls in traditional Catholic habits as a hobby. She continued the hobby into her adulthood, and her husband Wally assisted her and created ways for her to display her growing self-made collection.
Now that you have seen my photos, I found a 3D tour from Google Maps.
