  • Although the name is Miniature, the place is quite big! A great place to take the family, or go alone. The art is praiseworthy and amusing. The best part? You don't need to read all the signs, their are many audio description going on all the time. You just need to stand back and enjoy. Actually, don't stand back, lean in and look closely or you might miss something amazing!
  • Seems like a tourist trap, but it's pretty cool inside. The model maker is very talented and out a lot of time and effort into making some amazing scenes. There's different sections inside and could take you a couple hours if you took your time. Bit of a history lesson to go along with the scenes too. Worth the money.
  • This is one of my all time favourite places to visit. It's unbelievably well done, there are history lessons around every corner and magic and whimsy around every bend. My favourite area is the fairytale zone but the new Excalibur/King Arthur addition is so cool! Love it!
  • The Experience was a Totally Top Shelf Experience. It surprised us how big it was, if you are interested in Past and Future Ages. It’s Beyond Amazing. We Loved It. Anticipate 1 to 1.3 Hours. Awesome!! Highly Recommended
  • So cool!!! It’s a little old and cheesy, but it was my favorite place in Victoria. I recommend eating beforehand because you could spend a lot of time here. I was there for over two hours and could have extended it a bit longer if I hadn’t been so hungry. The only negative thing is that they play recordings talking about the historical displays - and multiple recordings are playing near each other. Maybe wear ear plugs or headphones? My brain was freaking out for a bit due to all the sound.
