I couldn't stop taking pictures. The miniatures are really eye-opening. One can even find a TV and a train going round the railway track in these miniature setting. I found the World's smallest Bible and bought one home at a very affordable price as well.

I'm blown away by the amazing miniature figures. I had a little difficulty (just a little) to locate the place and you have to go down flights of stairs in the building to get to the museum. Overall, I would still recommend this place for tourist visits. http://melissaleannelim.blogspot.com/

We visited this museum as it was highly recommended in the Lonely planet guide. We got the metro and walked a couple of blocks to get there. It might be easy to get lost if you don't have a map. It is located in the basement of an office building. The museum itself is small and a little run down... More

We decided to visit this museum after seeing the good reviews here. However, we were a little disappointed with the exhibits. We were expecting to see more of the oriental types of miniature items on display. It turned out that most of the items were of the western european houses, dolls and cartoons. It was interesting at first but we... More

This quirky Museum is situated in a rather smart(outside at least) block of offices, can't miss it due to rather large signs everywhere. There are toilets right there if needed,convenient if you have been on lots of public transport to get there!!! We loved the Rose House,near the entrance and from then on it was pure joy,one after the other.THe... More

We were looking for something to do to fill a morning, just a few hours. Found this place and really enjoyed it. Had our two children with us (4 and 2 years old) and with the little book you can purchase, they had much fun collecting stamps around the museum. Quite difficult to remind the children not run & jump!... More

Everything that was displayed was really detailed and jaw dropping! It was very enjoyable and they even had stamps related to some of the miniatures! My favourite part of the museum was the shop where you could also make your own miniatures or buy some!

This is by far one of the most exquisite site attractions in Taipei i have ever visited. This museum, as suggested by its name "miniature", is not a very spacious and vast museum. In fact, if one were to walk around the museum by a mere glance of the artifacts, one can easily reach the exit within 15 minutes or... More

The range of miniatures on show are amazing and cover a wide range of subjects, from Buckingham Palace to Jack & the Beanstalk. They are well laid out and in most cases accompanied by excellent explanations in English. Some of the miniatures defy belief in the way they have been crafted to exactly match their real size equivalents. The detail... More

Taipei's Miniatures Museum is the best miniature museum I have across in any of my travels so far. I have seen small collections at museums such as the Smithsonian or the National Museum of Denmark, but this is a dedicated museum of just miniatures. Besides a large number of different decorative dollhouses, there are at least 25-30 intricate room displays... More
