Simpich Character Doll Museum
Simpich Character Doll Museum is located in Colorado Springs. Simpich creates unique dolls, hand-crafted by skilled artisans. They are cast, hand-painted, and clothed at their workshops in Old Colorado City. The extraordinary Simpich Character Doll enterprise operated from this Old Colorado City building for nearly thirty years. Beautiful handmade figures were created here and shipped to points across the globe; and visitors were welcomed to tour the workshop areas where each character was painstakingly crafted. The Simpich Doll Museum features over fifty diorama exhibits from the early 1950s where the dolls were made in a tiny cottage in Manitou Springs through the mid 2000’s where the Simpich Doll operation peaked in artistry and complexity. Many exceptionally rare and one-of-a-kind figures are displayed, as well as creation processes, unusual memorabilia and family heirlooms. Many displays are scheduled to rotate to accommodate appropriate space for the nearly 500 distinct characters in the Simpich family’s collection, which remains the largest and most comprehensive in existence. The tour of the museum is free.
