Drove by and saw the name on a sign so we stopped in to see what it was. Almost left when we saw it was like...dollhouses. After 5 minutes we were in awe.Incredible miniature carvings, people, stuff that fascinated us. A very professionally designed museum that had you wandering.g from room to room and having a ball. A wonderful surprise.

Fun more for adults than children as the youngsters will want to touch everything with their hands and not just their eyes. Amazing variety of doll houses from all over the world.

This is an extremely kid friendly museum. For teens and adults, it is rather dull. It takes about 30 minutes to walk through the whole thing. There is a sort of magical feeling about this place, especially when there is a little fairy flying around that you can keep your eye out for. i highly recommend this for kids, maybe... More

Our neighbors talked us into going to the Mini Time Machine Museum of miniatures. I went but wasn't too excited about it. WOW was I blown away! All these rooms with all the miniatures on display. Every display was perfect to scale right down to the tiny knife and forks, etc, etc. it was mind blowing the amount of talent... More

I went to this museum on a school trip with my daughter. I really didn't expect much. It is beautifully made! Lovely displays created with care and whimsy. What a great little treasure.

We were just looking for something to do for an hour or so during our short trip to Tucson. Spotted this through Google and it was near where we were staying and so we decided to give it a try. Amazing!!! Huge display, beautiful new building. The displays are well laid out and very interesting. Even has some audio visual... More

This is a very small collection of miniatures that would be better off being paired with some other attractions. The Free day was hard to manage. Too many people made it difficult to navigate in such close quarters, and the exhibits were not well-coordinated with the audio-video presentations.

I was lucky enough to go during their free month of September 2014, otherwise adults are $9 each...and lower for kids. They have exceptional amounts of displays, even one in the floor and several "tree" rooms. They also had a themed Halloween set of displays. I was amazed at the workmanship and detail to so many of the pieces. Mini,... More

I liked the effort put forth for these miniatures but it is definitely not a cheerful experience, especially for children ( for whom this is most appropriate ?). Some of it is really "tacky". The best is the Green & Green Arts and Crafts home. That rates an A+. The dark lighting is kind of spooky (appropriate for Halloween) but... More
