In the house a part of the private doll collection of more than 3,000 dolls is exhibited and toys that have belonged to the family Reedtz-Thott for generations.

The exhibition is interactive and gives a story about the house’s history.

Facts Box

The house was built as a playhouse for the little baroness Julie Reedtz-Thott, who lived at Gavnø Castle with her brothers and parents more than 200 years ago.

Hun elskede at lege i parken med sine brødre og tilbragte timer i huset. Der blev ofte inviteret på te-selskaber, hvor der samtidig blev tilberedt pandekager og vafler på et lille komfur.
