Denver’s unique location at the foot of the Rocky Mountains not only offers plenty of natural experiences, but it’s also Colorado’s most populous city where family members – young and old – can experience plenty. We'll show you where you can discover the world’s smallest teacups, America's best rollercoasters, and the city’s most unusual sweets.
Have you ever heard of the “Japanese friendship doll”? This is not just an ordinary doll that you play with, but a piece of political history from the 1920s. At that time, Japan and the United States exchanged dolls to send a friendly political message. 58 dolls made their way from Japan to American museums and libraries. In addition to the doll in a flowered Yukata, the “Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys” also features fingernail-size teacups, pots, and beer steins. This cultural heritage not only prompts peace in a strange way, but also makes you thirsty when you look at it for a long time.
