One would think with both the name and concept of the museum that this attraction would be geared for kids. I went with my 4 year old boy. He's a typical 4 year old boy, not particularly rowdy or loud, but nor is he as sedate as my 75 year old grandmother. Sadly, this museum would have preferred my grandmother... More

Took my Granddaughter and daughter there and found it to be fairly interesting. Grand was really too young to appreciate a lot of what was there to see at age 4. It's pretty much a ton of miniature cities/villages and such. Worth the time, but not for small children

It is amazing to see all they have to offer in miniature. It is good for everyone. They have displays for every season. You really have to experience it. Hard to describe.

I'm not sure how I found this place - on one of the tourist sites, I think. But I'm so glad we visited it. Our party included four adults, three boys under the age of 9 and a four-year-old girl. All of us were fascinated by this museum. It's located in a non-descript neighborhood - I thought we were driving... More

Your visit begins with a optical perspective of entering through a large door into a world of miniatures. My family and I found it fascinating- particularly the music boxes, the ornate miniature rooms filled with every imaginable furnishings, paintings, decor. My father-in-law loved the Christmas village, and my daughter liked the Halloween display. Something of interest for everyone. Ask to... More

My husband and 2 grandchildren visited the mini museum yesterday. It was $28.00 for the four of us, which included the discounted fee for 2 seniors. More than one half of the museum is the display of "kits" made by miniature enthusiasts. While these may be fine for one's home, they are too amateurish for display at an official museum.... More

When I arrived I was expecting something more stuffy and bland. IT WASN'T! There was a great movie introduction to miniatures that explained the attraction behind them. Its not that they are just meant to be small, it's that they are meant to be small and realistic. The history wing gives an amazing glimpse into the past as well as... More

Elaborate doll houses and dioramas, a whole room of Christmas and Halloween themed miniature worlds. The Mini Time Machine museum of Miniatures will delight visitors from 2 to 102. Well worth the low price of admission, beautiful facility.

The museum was a delight to visit with so much to see. It is great for all ages to see, touring time is between 1-2 hours depending on the person and how much time they would want to spend view all the miniatures. Very interesting and educational. It is worth the trip.
