Operated by the Friends of the Fennimore Doll & Toy Museum, the museum operates as a non-profit organization and runs completely on volunteer help, donations, and a modest entrance fee. The museum has many wonderful volunteers but it needs the support of new volunteers to work at the museum and welcomes all financial contributions.

Located at 1135 6th Street, Fennimore, WI, the museum is directly behind Subway and across the street from the Fennimore Railroad Museum. See the Fennimore WI website for local amenities and events.
