Naida Njoku has a miniature passion. Since getting her first one at age 14, she has collected more than 500 dolls from five continents, everything from Jacqueline Kennedy to Mahatma Gandhi to Asian figurines in long, black dresses. In 2008, the retired nurse opened the Maria Rose International Doll Museum and Cultural Center to share her collection with others. Not only can patrons take a trip around the doll world at this Southeast Queens venue, but they can admire a replica of a quaint English village replete with a train set. Today, December 29, until the end of 2013, patrons can visit for free.
