Wow. It was a pleasure to visit this museum. We thought it is something that children only would enjoy. But as adults we were so fascinated that we spent much more time than we expected here. The time and effort it takes to create these...More

There is a part which is very interesting about the sets, where they explain how they shoot miniatures. I found the body parts (accessories) hilarious (so funny from up close). Although the alien queen is quite scary but very interesting.

The cinema part was quite educative however the miniatures were really exciting. Displays works of many different artisans so variety is very satisfying.

We spent a lot more time at this museum than I expected. The collection is much bigger than we expected and very interesting. We especially enjoyed the miniature collections on the top two floors. A really enjoyable visit!

Great experience, not only because I'm a huge movie fan (and you can experience a lot of displays and special effects), but also because I love watching the tiny objects (such as shoes or pastries smaller than a third of my little nail!). One of...More
