I expected Miniature World to be a small time attraction but it was amazing. It kept two teens enthralled and thrilled with their discoveries for well over an hour. The worlds span space, war times, and historical events and places as well as fantasy and...More

It was a lot of fun for our kids we suggest ages 8+ for this activity. There were different category's for example fantasy, history, sci-fi and a lot of other category's. I recommend doing this activity.

We were there way longer than we anticipated, marveling at the intricate work done by nameless people. Except for just a couple of displays, no work was credited. Really enjoyed it!

The price is right. The exhibits are amazing. My granddaughter loved them and so did we. Fun for any age group.

I visited this place on my first day in Victoria and was very impressed with all the creations. It’s a small place but it’s filled with lots of awesome displays. You can easily spend about 45 minutes to an hour in there.

The miniature dioramas of the history of British Columbia were my favorites. My grand daughters were fascinated with the detail and diversity of the displays
