There are so many amazing miniatures to see. One can see the time spent in arranging the settings and the things inside of them. The staff is very pleasant and helpful and there are even guided tours. It was not crowded and the children had a happy time. It was not expensive and you could stay as long as you... More

The collection of miniatures from all over the world is truly amazing! As a local business owner in the event business, this also serves as a great venue for dinners, birthday parties, bar/bat mitvahs, and special events. Very kid friendly and very accommodating.

Expect to be in awe of what you find. Miniature everything: buildings, houses, rooms furnished throughout, autos, people, on and on. We are talking miniature here. Such incredible skill to be so detailed and accurate throughout. It'll blow your mind.

This museum is very original and enjoyable for a one time visit. The highlight were the very old antique miniatures. Very detailed and must have taken hours and hours to make. Less impressive were some more current miniatures that were very random and looked like the person that made them thought "how many random tacky things can I cram into... More

My husband was very hesitant to go to the Museum with me but was totally enthralled with it. Great for kids and Adults alike.

I took my 13 & 11 year old. We were fascinated by all of the theme rooms. I love the detail in each house. I've never seen such an elaborate display of minatures.

We had a great tour here! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the pieces and of the woman who built the museum to house her collection. She added many stories as she spoke during the tour. So much to see...so little time!!! I could go back here again to browse alone :)
