Journey to the Uncanny Valley

October 13, 2017

According to a recent Vox.com poll, 43% of Americans are afraid of clowns to some degree. That’s more than are afraid of terrorist attacks, a loved one dying or death in general. From the classic Chatty Cathy to this year’s Luvabella and beyond, parents have be unnerved by the dolls their kids love.

BUT WHY?!

Join us Oct 13th at the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys for this edifying exploration of the many reasons why dolls and clowns can give you the creeps — in an old house filled with dolls. Old dolls. Some of which are clowns. The museum is located at 1880 Gaylord Street in Denver, one block west of City Park.

Tickets are $7 for adults, $6 for seniors and $5 for folks under 16. This price includes admission to the museum. Ticket proceeds will go towards the museum’s campaign to find a new home!

Costumes are encouraged!

Due to real world and pop culture content, discretion is advised for younger kids who may find this spooky and/or boring. for more information, contact education@dmmdt.org or call 303-322-1053.
