The museum will be using 700 dolls to tell the story of Barbie, as well as pieces of art, newspaper articles, photos and videos.

Plus, the exhibition will showcase how Barbie has evolved over the years, including the doll’s outfits to various job roles, including a surgeon to a presidential candidate.
