    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.
