This museum of miniature scenes was an incredible gem to find in Tucson. We wheeled our 18 month old in a stroller while the 3 and 4 year old were very excited by everything they saw. They enjoyed the "fairy hunt" - they did need quite a bit of lifting in our arms to help them see. They were captivated... More

If you like miniatures, this is the place to go. It is very well done. Give yourself plenty of time and plan to come back another time. There is so much to see and after a while, it gets to be too much to absorb at one time. Become a member and you will get some passes for your guests... More

We really enjoyed the miniatures, wow a lot of work went into the displays. A very nice variety of houses, we had a great time. We were plenty surprised by the display. The children throughout the building seemed to be enjoying it. More interactive displays and audio information stations would be nice.

Hi, it's the travelin' agents from Consumers Travel World. It's places like this that make traveling worthwhile. We were so NOT looking forward to visiting this venue, and only allotted a few minutes to drop in and see what there was to see. We figured a few dollhouses similar to those that many museums have. What a surprise!! It was... More

Discovered this museum as friend who was visiting Tucson told us about it. Quite frankly I pass this place almost daily and had no idea it was here. A nice guided tour and then a walk around by ourselves. Make sure you take the tour as the guide will point out tiny little items that you would otherwise miss. This... More

Hate to rate any place poor, but 5 of us visited ranging in age from 6 to 44 and know one really said they wanted to go back or really found the place interesting. If you are into miniatures this is the place to be. Just not us.

This museum is a fantastic place to explore and learn how to do miniatures. All things small are all things intricate. the designs are wonderful to take in. Come and spend some time at the museum or join one of the fun activities they have going on.

A special place where little things create big memories! Tucson's special place for young & old! Suggest using one of there little riser boxes if you have wee ones to avoid lifting them up to see!

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.
