Owner description: From a replica of a real French chateau to a working loom one could hold in the palm of one's hand, the Museum of Miniature Houses features a vast collection of exquisite miniature houses, vignettes and artisan pieces. "I had no idea anything like this existed!" is a phrase often heard from newcomers, who marvel at the intricacy involved in creating objects on such a small scale. Children and teens love doing the treasure hunts and the little ones get to play with a real dollhouse. In addition to a permanent collection, the Museum has rotating exhibits that change frequently. If you are a miniaturist yourself you can visit our well-stocked shop (no admission fee necessary for shoppers.) Touring the Museum of Miniature Houses is a truly unique experience, one which the whole family can enjoy.

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

“So fun!”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

This place is such a quaint and cute addition to the Carmel Arts District and is perfect for anyone who loves dollhouses and miniatures. My personal favorite was the miniature of Alan Rickman's dressing room, quirky but cool!

One of those fun places to go where you don't have to walk a lot and can finish in 45 minutes. I go about once a year and are surprised every time.The craftsmanship of these miniature delicacy is amazing. The people are nice and sweet also. My only complaint is there short hours. i don't think this place is open more than 15 hours a week.
