An excellent way to spend 1-1/2 hours. If you are into miniatures or doll houses, this is the place for you. Cost is $8 for Seniors. Very interesting and well documented (professionally) about when the exhibit was built and the age. Some of the exhibits go back to the mid-1800's. Others are much newer.

This is a wonderful attraction here in Tucson. I took friends from California that are miniature enthusiast and they loved it. Better than the museum they had seen in Paris. What they said. I love the beauty of all the displays. It really is an amazing art.

We took our visiting grand daughters to the Mini Time Machine Museum and thoroughly enjoyed it. The kids loved the displays and had fun looking for the "hidden fairies". The docents were especially pleasant and helpful. Would certainly recommend a visit.

We truly enjoyed our visit to the Museum of Miniatures. We utilized the Tucson Passport to visit multiple attractions, and this museum was one that we were the most intrigued by. It was a very unique experience and definitely worth seeing.

This museum is relatively new and easy to visit. Some of the collections have been donated by individuals e.g. A collection of Christmas and Halloween Village buildings. What really impressed me was seeing the work of artist who create doll houses on 1 to 12 scale. This handy work is really great to see. At $9 a ticket, this is... More

And it's delightful. Be sure to plan 2-3 hours AT LEAST to see as many of the amazing miniatures as you can see.

Very impressive in amount of miniatures they got. The building itself was designed for this collection as well (check out the front door). I actually got overwhelmed by the amount of vignettes and all the details.
