Starting Wednesday October 4, the National Museum and the Japanese Embassy in Nicaragua launch the temporary exposition 'Japanese Dolls'. This exhibition will be available to the public until the 30th of October in the Rodrigo Peñalba Room, which can be visited free of charge.

The exposition consists of a collection of 70 traditional Japanese dolls, made from wood, ceramics, and porcelain. The dolls - some of which are male dolls - are part of the ancient Japanese art and they nowadays form a national symbol of this Asian country. Visitors can enjoy the Japanese culture in the fine details of every doll.

This exhibition can be visited from 8 AM until 5 PM during weekdays. In the weekend the room is open from 9 AM until 4 PM. The Rodrigo Peñalba Room of the National Museum is located in the National Palace of Culture, in front of the Presidential Palace in the historical center of Managua.
