“Unique Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

After spending a long day in the Carmel Arts District, we came here half an hour before it closed.
This museum is very unique. It has so many little houses and things. Some things are amazing, have so much detail but so small. Very enjoyable museum.

“Lovely lace to visit for all ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I just love this place. We live up the street and love everything about the houses. Give it a try and you will be surprised how much fun it is be a kid again for an hour or two. This lace really is not for small children. 6 years of age and up is really a good lace to start. It is small so baby strollers are not a good thing. Also, call ahead, the hours are short. I believe it is staffed with caring volunteers so they are not open late. It is a great time, so if you are visiting Carmel or live here, you will enjoy the exhibits.

“Fun place to take kids.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

While this museum is in a small house, it's packed with amazing miniature houses to look at. You can get a clipboard with a scavenger hunt attached when you arrive. It's great fun to walk through and try to find what's hiding in the tiny houses. Would recommend for ages 5 and up.

“Great for hobbyists and Girl Scouts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

The Museum has given our local Girl Scout troops tours for years. It was such an interesting experience that my daughters requested to return to see displays in more details, and they were eager to bring their grandmother along as well. A great community treasure!

“2nd time to visit here”

I just love seeing all the doll houses and how they are made. Some of them are amazing. They also have a small store.
