Where are we going today?

If you ever wanted to see what the World of Dickens looked like, or perhaps Camelot as King Arthur takes to his round table, you can - all at Miniature World!

At this fun Victoria attraction, you can experience moments in history, and amazing sights from across the world as they are, and would have been - but with a difference.

They are all in miniature form!

Have you ever wanted to see the Fields of Glory, or Frontierland in all it's glory, or even the magic of Fantasyland? Of course you did - and now you can!

Miniature World also has fun special effects thanks to it's animations, lighting and sound, so all of the displays really do come to life!

Other fun features at Miniature World are the World's Largest Doll House dating back from 1880, with over 50 beautiful rooms all furnished in exquisite detail.

You can experience the Great Canadian Railway, and how it was during the 1880s when it was the national wonder of the country.

You can also feel the magic of the circus and re-live those exciting days when the circus came to town!

From Ye Olde London in 1670, to the great castles of Europe, it's like you can travel the world, and venture through the history books, without leaving the museum!

Great family fun MINIATURE style in Victoria, with BIG surprises!

    There is a wonder full 3D virtual quality to the displays at Miniature World and this of course goes back over 40 years before 'virtual' or '3D' was in vogue! I have been to visit the show a number of times over the years due to the sheer number of themes and their continued expansion, it is impossible to take it all in during one visit even though you can stay as long as you like.

    Has not been updated in 20 years and the miniatures look old and untidy. It is too expensive for what you get.

    Better than I expected. The quality of the miniature dioramas was superb. Nice variety of topics also, varying from WWII, to old English towns, Civil War, classic children's stories, model trains, detailed doll houses, movie set quality dioramas, etc.. There's something for everyone. Was a bit skeptical that it would be worth it, but the 4 of us of different ages (including 2 teens) walked out all agreeing that it was enjoyable. Took about 45 minutes. Cost about $12 each.

    I was skeptical about going in to see miniature world but we really enjoyed it! There was so much to see, our son had a blast looking through the many, many display cases featuring a mini circus, train displays, town models, doll houses, and more. There was so much detail to take in i'm sure you have to go more than once to take it all in. We had a great time and will definitely be back in the future. Well worth every penny and fun for the whole family!!

Sometimes it seems like a time travel experience with all the historical stuff, other times it feels like they have archived and captured frozen moments in time giving you a pause to notice all the details. Been a fan for years and am looking forward to their next expansion in 2014 which is all hush hush I hear (or don't that is, and I am local to the area of beautiful Victoria). Highly recommended, truly something for all ages.
