It is more than doll houses. The miniature rooms and houses are exquisit. By rooms I don't mean the kind you walk into. I could spend hours there with my flashlite tosee in the corners of the rooms. You are either a miniaturist or your not. Dependson your taste..

I had heard of this place for quite a while after hearing a radio interview with the lady who built it. It is not anything like I expected - little girl's stuff - and I enjoyed the visit very much and suggest it to anyone in Tucson.

The displays and everything about this place is done so well and entertaining. This is the place we like to take people to when they are visiting Tucson. A lot or care and work has gone into making this a lovely place.

Fun place for kids and grandkids. Adults will like looking at the details of the various miniatures. Kids especially enjoy the laser images of Tinker Bell as she floats around the tree.

The most amazing collection of doll houses and miniatures. Really did not want to leave. Bring lots of camera memory. Brings out the child in all ages. Watch the delight on the faces of everyone around you.

This place is a jewel, regardless of your depth of interest in miniatures. It's worth the price for just a walk through if your interest is only casual, but if your interest is deep you'll spend hours and enjoy every minute.

Wow. Wow. Do not miss this place. Even if miniatures sounds boring to you, this place is anything but that. There is room after room of truly incredible miniature buildings, many of which are antique ones. The building is new and spacious. There is a ton to see here. Do it!

We visited as we had a few hours to fill. I enjoyed it very much, lots of different scenes and historical information. Our 5 year old son wasn't as impressed although he did look for the fairies hidden in the displays. It was fun and I'd go back.
