    Visited in June of 2014 and was delighted with the displays, of which number into the hundreds with thousands of miniatures of all types. Everyone from the youngster to the grandparent should find something of interest, as the displays cover Ghost, Witches, Christmas, history, culture, architecture, cartoons, and a host of other times, places, people, animals, and events.

Plan on spending from one to three hours, and if you can, take the free guided tour when available. You may take pictures, non-flash only. You should watch and control your children as no horseplay or running is allowed, and although very young children will enjoy the displays, there are so many that some children may become bored.
There is plenty of free parking, and the entry fee is within reason and within most people's entertainment budget.

One potential item to watch for is the entry to the museum, the road is somewhat rural and the entry as one is heading east is on the left and easy to miss.

Great place. However if they want to call themselves a true miniature museum they need to devote space to displaying some of the amazing miniature works from prison inmates (who have been creating in this medium for quite some time) or those who miniaturize infamous crime scenes. This museum entirely ignores these facets. It would be like going to a natural history museum and seeing only cute little herbivores in fields of flowers with sunshine and rainbow backdrop and not incorporating the T-Rex's and Velociraptors that were equally as valid.
