Took my 10 year old granddaughter there yesterday. What a delightful place, a lot larger than it looked. Parking on the street is possible, but there is a parking lot around back, and since the street parking is metered, bring extra quarters (an hour is $.75) or park in the rear. It will take at least an hour, two would be a more leisurely visit, and especially if you plan to shop in the store in the front part of the museum, allow more time. Quite an extensive selection of miniatures to furnish your own dollhouse are available, at what seemed to me reasonable prices. Our favorite "house" was the "Our Lady of Immaculate Deception" convent where babies may be selected...from under cabbage leaves or by purchasing watermelon seeds! Much hilarity resulted from my granddaughter reading all the cute signs posted around the house. The volunteers were informative and charming. All in all, a success, and recommended for "children" of all ages.

The museum is in a little store front and yes you have to improvise on parking. It is run by nice volunteers. There are many miniature houses, a church, Cleopatra in a temple, a blacksmiths shop(the best display there) etc. A nice 1-2 hour museum stop. In the front are many miniatures for sale. Some are mass produced, others handmade or vintage. Also my nieces ( 5 and 7) enjoyed just playing with the several doll houses they had to play with up front. They looked around for maybe 30 minutes and then wanted to play. Also the volunteers gave them little stools so that they could step up higher in the museum and see everything.

We paid for admission through a groupon. They also have a $1 off each admission coupon on their website.

This was a little hard to find parking for but it was worth it. The front of the museum is a shop for people who make miniatures. The back is filled with miniatures of buildings, some recognizable, some not. All exceptionally well done. The museum is run by volunteers who were very nice and helpful.
