Michael Garman Museum & Gallery, Colorado Springs

4.5
At Michael Garman Museum & Gallery, wander around a realistic, 279 sq m (3,000 sq ft) dollhouse inspired by the artist's life story and journeys throughout the Americas. The museum showcases more than 500 handmade sculptures representing American heroes from all walks of life--from cowboys, soldiers, and firefighters, to aviators and golfers. As you move on a scavenger hunt through this miniature city, the sculptures seem to move along with you thanks to skillfully designed holograms and visual illusions.

  • Awesome place! The 3D recreation of the olden times is mind blowing! Michael has such a vivid imagination. His talent and vision with this is absolutely spectacular! Steve and Laura were absolutely awesome in explaining how Michael put this together and how he came up with the concept. If you enjoy looking at the past, you'll be amazed at how much detail this exhibit has. You'll truly get a glimpse of the past.
  • Magic town inside the museum is amazingly detailed. Definitely worth the admission and you can take as little or as much time as you like to go through it. There is a scavenger hunt available which can be a fun activity for all in the family.
  • This is such a neat hidden gem! Michael Garman makes amazingly detailed sculptures of different occupations. The best part is Magic Town. It's a small fee to enter into magic town that is inside the gallery. It's literally a small town with all kinds of characters and scenes with mirrors that makes for a fun time of seeing things that aren't as they appear. They also offer a treasure hunt along the way. This is a good rainy day activity and also good for children!
  • Remarkable! One of the best things I have seen since visiting my friends Pete and Jill!. I would recommend this art gallery to everyone! Good price and very nice people working in the gallery! It’s a one of a kind place to visit! Visit there, you’ll be happy!
  • We Were awed by the lifelike and realistic designs by Michael Garman. The museum was worth the small entry fee. The use of mirrors and holograms added to the wonderful experience.
