“Tiny treasures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Very interesting and intricate museum of miniatures. I definately did not allow enough time to see everything, but really enjoyed the 2 hours I spent inside the galleries. Each & every corner opened up to a new world of life in miniature - I never realized there could be so much. It was quite a history lesson also - some of the houses dated back over 100 years. The detail and craftsmanship is just extraordinary.

“Size is definitely relative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is another treasure I found on Google despite living in Tucson for more than 20 years. The fun begins at the front doors, which create the illusion of shrinking you. Inside is a wonderland of miniaturized houses from different periods and countries, but also unique art pieces. There are several interactive exhibits that play with your imagination and teach how to scale miniatures. It is a wondrous experience, but may not appeal to all visitors. Limited gift shopping is available.

Everything is in miniature and the museum has done a good job with all the scenes. Even the adults will love it. Wonderful place to visit and get out of the hot sun......

“Think Small”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

So many miniatures, as houses, rooms, individually unique items. Takes me back to my childhood delight with a dollhouse my father built for me.
