  • 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!
  • This was a lot of fun. Yes, it's not a massive space but there is so much detail in every display. There was the added bonus of looking for the 6 Santa Clauses in the displays... we only found 4 but it was like Where's Waldo. Pretty cool... lots of kids there too.
  • An incredible wonderful place. The entire collection is of the most exquisite taste and incredible crafted. The diversity of themes allows you to go from one room to another with amusement at every corner. Really a wonderful place to visit for the entire family.
  • Been to this attraction more than a handful of times. I could never get bored of it! I can definitely appreciate the craftsmanship and older exhibits which are so unique. This place makes me feel like a curious kid again!
  • Very informative and interesting museum that I went through. It’s a depth history story to see through those little figures and landscape. It’s countless photos that I took. It is amazing and a definite visit when being in Victoria.

Where to stay in Victoria

The curling waterfront Wharf Street, which becomes Store Street, offers the best selection of lodgings in the city center, although you can expect to pay extra for the trademark views. Many travelers opt to stay in the neighborhood of James Bay, where Belleville Street and surrounds provide comfortable and even luxurious options. For something more relaxed and closer to nature, look south to the expansive Beacon Hill Park.
