  • Incredible detail in tiny representations. All miniature, but nothing is passed to them. Worth it penalty devote you a couple of hours to go it. There are models of difertentes places that not is can believe to the scale that it have led. A different and very original attraction.

  • We were quite impressed by most of the displays, some more intricate than others. Although it was fun to see and learn what some are based on, I don't foresee myself going again. 
  • Thousands of man-hours went into the making of these exhibits; always something fascinating, interactive or downright gob-smacking! Children will love this..lots of work at their height. Ideal for a r...  more »

  • Before going in you don't think it will be very interesting, but it is really cool actually. It is incredible how much effort and time goes in to every piece. Highly recommended!
  • How does one have a steady enough hand to actually paint the little people in the display? Went with my girlfriend and it was completely amazing both had a wonderful time and spent about 2 hours there. Definitely appreciate the time it must take to make the displays and when they say 80 it honestly seems like more sinice some of them are massive. Will be going back if I am in Victoria. Also the admission price is more then fair for what is offered.
  • After exiting the Royal BC Museum, our next visit was to Miniature World, around the side of the Empress Hotel. The young lady who welcomed us, on realising we were Australian, asked if we were members of RACQ, and gave us an extra discount. My husband and I were intrigued and amazed at what we were seeing. Over 80 different exhibits and scenes, all in loving detail and so small! As we had travelled through the Spiral Tunnells on the Rocky Mountaineer, we loved seeing them depicted here, together with a train that followed a similar route back in history. Circus World is amazing and brought back childhood memories of watching the circus pass through town to its fairground. The multitude of "little people" lining the street, the shops and houses and all the detail in the background emphasises the devotion to this unique art. If in Victoria, this is a "must visit"
  • This place is fantastic! There are many displays, each one beautiful and detailed. The future section is pretty great. The displays on fairy tales and from novels are magnificent. I love them. The whole family had fun here. If we lived on the island we would have gotten a year membership. Lots to see here, lots of great information also. I'll be going again.
  • Lots and lots of miniatures! Beautifully crafted and displayed. Great place to spend half the day, especially if it's raining.
