Few years ago, I had the chance to see an exhibition devoted to Barbie at Musée de la Poupée (the Paris Doll museum). It was great but it had nothing to do with the current Barbie exhibition featured at Musée des Arts Décoratifs which is massive.
The exhibition is absolutly huge. It shows hundreds of Barbie dolls, from its launch, in 1959, by Ruth Handler until nowadays.
I very much enjoyed the fashion show display and the Barbies wearing designers' clothes. It was fun trying to find out which designer the dolls were wearing. I also liked the window featuring the different jobs Barbie had: Barbie dentist, Barbie nurse...
A great installation to be seen with the kids but not only...
