Feel like a giant as you explore Miniatures Museum of Taiwan. Inside the museum, you’ll find a whimsical miniature world full of replica castles, chalets, and villages, as well as replicas of both Eastern and Western-style houses. The doll-house size versions of classic children’s novels create wonderful scenes for children and adults alike. Gaze inside the collection of 200 miniature structures to discover a whole world of intricate wooden creations. The attention to detail offers great interest for the whole family.

  • There are many museums and exhibitions in Taipei, and the Pocket Museum is one of the more special exhibition galleries. You need to buy tickets to get inside. Most are smaller than the size of 12. Whether it's a building, a landscape, a character, or an egg carving, it's very delicate. When you look closer, you often find small, stunning details of the model.

  • Small museum that mostly features dollhouses. There are only a few models like the one of gullivers travels in the picture, so miniature museum is a bit out of place. Overall it isnt a bad place to vi...  more »

  • Love love love loved this place, one of the highlights of my visit to Taipe. If your a fan of miniatures this is a good place to go. Spent about 3hours here, the entrance fee was worth it. Place a bit small, they probably could improve on lighting so you could take more decent pictures :) remember no flash please. They also have a gift shop after the museum selling some miniature items. A very good visit.
  • Really amazing museum! Was impressed with the varied collection and representations of miniatures from real world buildings like the Buckingham Palace, period as well as fantasy miniatures. Enjoyed my visit here. The detailed interiors are stunning as well.
  • Cool and impressive models but it's relatively small size means you could probably finish it in 25 minutes. Take your time and it's a comfortable hours worth of stuff! 200NT entry for adults. English signs on most of the dioramas.
  • What a surprising little treat. Worth the visit to fall down the rabbit hole of miniatures and get lost in these little worlds. Though the museum is small, the pieces on display are quite extraordinary. Many have English descriptions which help add a bit of character and context for English-speaking visitors. The gift shop has a variety of items, including unique gift cards, perfect for travelers who don't want to send something special home.
  • I was quite stunned by the gift shop by the museum. They have all the miniature in decent prices. Some of the DIY boxes are great for gifting as well. You will also find mini bible as key chains, and there are actually words literally. The shop also sells some souvenirs about Taiwan. The staff is friendly and not pushy, and you can take your time touring in the gift shop worry-free.
