The exhibit showcases the iconic Barbie doll and encourages the kind of imaginative play that teaches us that no matter our gender, ethnicity, or background, we can all make the world a better place by doing work that excites us, challenges us, and brings us fulfillment.

  • View various Barbie dolls through history and the story behind how Ruth Handler created the iconic doll.
  • Explore 11 different careers and learn about the more than 200 careers Barbie has had over the years.
