  • What a great time. The place was gorgeous and cool. The exhibits were amazing. So many different kinds of miniature things, houses, animals, flowers, whole towns. Had a great time.  more »
  • This has thousands of miniature items, some which are almost a miracle they could be made. Well worth visiting.  more »
  • This museum is not like any other it is amazing and very well planned out scenes from another time (not modern time) but still very nicely detailed and displayed in separate rooms. The museum is clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. My family enjoyed ourselves here and would recommend. I say 2 hours at most and that is with stopping and talking about the scenes and with kids small kids in tow. Parking was easy to find a spot and entry was easy no long lines admission was reasonable. If they had a cafe that would make this place even better.
  • Quaint little place! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff who are eager to make your experience more fulfilling in any way they can. I learned that there's a whole culture of miniatures that has existed for hundreds of years. I had no idea! They also have a great holiday display for Halloween and Christmas. Will visit again!
