Please check in first at Bancroft Park, 2408 W. Colorado Ave. The tour will be held across the street at Simpich Marionette Theater, 2413 W. Colorado Ave.
Simpich Character Doll Museum
The tour will be held with David Simpich, who will give us a short history of the Simpich Character Doll Museum, which showcases the intricate history and remarkable artistry of doll artists Jan & Bob Simpich. Over fifty diorama exhibits carry visitors from the early 1950s where the dolls were made in a tiny cottage in Manitou Springs through the mid-2000s where the Simpich Doll operation peaked in artistry and complexity. Many rare and one-of-a-kind figures are displayed, as well as creation processes, unusual memorabilia and family heirlooms.
As a special treat, Mr. Simpich and his team will present a brief show in the Theater.
Due to fire codes and number of seats in the Theater, this tour will be limited to first 70 persons who mail in the enclosed RSVP card and payment of $12 ($15 for your guest without prepaid pass) by the June 27th deadline.
This Tour will NOT be advertised to the public.
