A big museum in Paris is gearing up for a huge exhibition that will celebrate the history of the world’s most famous doll – Barbie. Here are the details.

The exhibition will start from March 10th and will last all the way to September 18th 2016. So you will have quite a lot of time to plan a trip to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris where the exhibition will be held.

If you are a fan of Barbie, you would want to make the trip. There will be around 700 dolls used to make a visual trip through the years of Barbie’s history. Completing the exhibition will be a lot of accessories, photos, videos, newspaper articles. Even pieces of art will be on display.

The exhibition will allow you to follow the history of Barbie and see how her character, appearance and functions have evolved over the years. Her most iconic roles and job outfits will also be showcased.

There will also be a competition for fans to design their own dress for Barbie. The iconic doll has been a top seller for decades. Even Barbie though has suffered somewhat due to the huge popularity of technology gadgets. Even so, with the rise of retro toys and the hopes they are coming back, Barbie should have a prime spot to recapture some magic and once again become a top toy choice.
