If your child collects American Girl Dolls, a visit to the American Girl Place will be a very special experience. The store offers shopping, a cafe where children can have lunch with their dolls, a hair salon, and a theatre with live musicals. There is also a doll hospital where mishaps can be repaired, and an opportunity to pose for a fake magazine cover with your doll. Of course all of this comes at a price, and it's pretty hefty. For example, a visit to the hair salon is $10-$20 (only offered for American Girl brand dolls) and a photo package costs between $23 and $35. Meals begin at $18 per person for Brunch and cost up to $22 per person for dinner. There are also occasional free events and craft activities

Note: Saturday lunch is the most popular meal, and weekday reservations are usually easier to get.

    You do not need an appointment to visit the store, but if you want to eat a meal, visit the hair salon or see a show you should make a reservation in advance.

    Have fun!
