We took our visiting grand daughters to the Mini Time Machine Museum and thoroughly enjoyed it. The kids loved the displays and had fun looking for the "hidden fairies". The docents were especially pleasant and helpful. Would certainly recommend a visit.

We truly enjoyed our visit to the Museum of Miniatures. We utilized the Tucson Passport to visit multiple attractions, and this museum was one that we were the most intrigued by. It was a very unique experience and definitely worth seeing.

And it's delightful. Be sure to plan 2-3 hours AT LEAST to see as many of the amazing miniatures as you can see.

Very impressive in amount of miniatures they got. The building itself was designed for this collection as well (check out the front door). I actually got overwhelmed by the amount of vignettes and all the details.
