The Miniatures Museum is a funky little hole-in-the-wall place which features many dollhouses and room boxes. It's on the basement level of a random building, and evokes a slightly shabby, yet whimsical aura. As a child, I loved dollhouses, so I had a fabulous 45-minute solitary stroll through the museum, and also down memory lane. I knew enough not to... More

The workman ship that has gone into these reconstructions in miniature is amazing. A lot of patience. The rooms look so life like and the attention to detail is great. If you cut the frame out of our photo people will think you are taking a photo of a standard room.

Quite a number of miniature collections in this museum which includes houses, dolls, palaces, fairy tales etc. Pretty interesting and do get a mini booklet at the counter (approx. 20NT) which you can chop with this various stamps in the museum.

The museum is in the basement of an office building, so we walked past it the first time looking for it. The museum is quirky and occupied us (two adults) for about 90 minutes. Surprisingly, there are very few Asian buildings or designs; most of the rooms and buildings are from the US or Canada.

Pros: 1. The museum has the world's second largest collection of miniatures, which is presented according to themes like dolls, fairy tales, room boxes, and replicas of real-life buildings or scenes. People of any age or gender will be fascinated by the displays. 2. Most displays have descriptions in traditional Chinese, Japanese and English. The descriptions are not only focused... More

Spent a lot more time there than expected. You can finished it with less than 2 hours I guess, but It took us almost 4 hours - and that was only because they were closing! (Open till 6pm) Very impressive collections - mostly western themes, but they're all very detailed! If you've never been to a miniature museum, then you... More

Collection of miniatures (mostly of western/american houses and rooms) is an interesting diversion from the other usual tourist spots. You can combine a visit here with a visit to the Suho Paper Museum which is within walking distance.

The Museum is very small. most of all, the collections seems still stay at 20 years ago. compare to other museum, the enterance fee is too expensive. just go to their shop and buy some little things is enough. try this place if you already visited all the other tourist spots in taipei.

We visited the Miniatures Museum whilst in Taipei in November 2015. There are many miniatures of all types, including houses, palaces, fantasy worlds, historical rooms, and framed rooms lining one long wall of the museum. As someone else mentioned, some of the descriptions are placed very low to the floor which would make it hard for taller people to see.... More
