The museum's doll collection consists of around 80 dolls dressed in national costumes (bunad). The collection was the life work of Tordis Røyne (1926–2006), a farmer's wife from Vestre Sidre, who during the course of her life made around 200 dolls. She cast the faces, made the wigs (often from real hair) and dressed the dolls in miniature versions of national costumes from all around Norway. She also had a small army of helpers: Grete Rudi Bråten, Gunhild Nørsterud and Berit Vidme helped with the sewing. Her husband, Rolf Tidemann Røyne, and later Johannes Grøthe, made the dolls' shoes. Silversmith Inger Norun Solhaug made most of the national costume jewellery, and even made spectacles from watch glass and silver spectacle frames. Miniature zithers and other tiny instruments made from wood also make up the collection.
