Mint Museum of Toys: Dolls

Little girls always used dolls as a means of escape.
In the 1920's it was the only way out of the brothels of China.
While their sisters in the West were marching for their right to vote,
life for women was unforgivingly harsh in pre-communist China.
Which is the Door of Hope Dolls at Mint Museum of Joys is now the most authentic record of what life was like nestled between century-old shop houses opposite The Raffles Hotel, this museum is dedicated to archiving one of the world's finest and most desirable collection of themed toys. All in their prisitne glory.

Come on, everyone knows that is not the right typeface for such a long text. Adding it as a part of the object makes it even boring.

Once again, visually interesting, but unreadable.

Feels like a crime against readability. If the main tagline, didn't break up so much it would be a lot better.

Forget readability! This is why you try harder to read it! I think this is brilliant!
