Barbie's Dream House in Berlin

Barbie's house is now on display in Berlin. Barbie fans can explore the 2900 square foot house, which offers a glimpse into Barbie's private life. Among other things, the interactive exhibition displays Barbie's living room, bedroom, and hundreds of her outfits. 

The exhibition is not without controversy. Police will be on hand guarding the house after feminist groups and left-wing activists said they would picket the exhibition, calling it sexist propaganda and the wrong role model for young girls. Although Barbie isn't my thing, it is a cultural phenomena that many people will find interesting. 

Barbie Dreamhouse Experience, Voltairestraße 2a/Dircksenstraße, Berlin; +49 30 4799 7433; May 16-August 25, 2013; open daily from 10 a.m.-8 p.m; admission €15 for adults, €12 for children under 14.
