The Mini-Time Machine Museum of Miniatures is state-of-the-art display of entertaining and interactive array of antique and contemporary miniatures that will transport you to different eras via the stories and history of the pieces in the collections.
Sounds pretty fun to us!
The museum styles itself as a miniature time machine, which kids love, where you set off on your self-guided tour through different lands and times both real and imagined. Great for the kids to get their imaginations going too!
Within the museum, there are over 400 miniature houses, room boxes and enchanting collectibles, all organized into three main areas - the Enchanted Realm, History Gallery and Exploring the World.
The Enchanted Realm is a magical place where all of the pieces displayed reflect that. Kids can see woodland creatures, fairy castles, a witches compound and more enchanting themes.
The History Galley is reflective of different time periods, and also have historical value and significance. One of the oldest miniature houses in the entire USA is part of the collection, that dates back to 1775. That is pretty special!
Exploring the World is home to contemporary fine-scale miniature and examples of how miniatures are used in other countries too!
An interesting day out where miniature fun offer big memories!
