  • I wasn't sure if I wanted to go to this museum. It was so amazing, many, many toys that I had Had and forgotten about. So well put together, we stayed 3 hours and enjoyed it very much. 
  • I believe this is one of the most unusual museums I've visited. It's dedicated to all things tiny. If you think this is just about doll houses and you've seen that, done that. It's not. These are perf...  more »

  • This is a wonderful museum for kids and for adults. The first floor is all miniatures, which is my favorite. The second has a large collection of historic toys--it might make you nostalgic! Lots of parking available. Great for a family trip, or even for a date.
  • Great little museum. Very clean and well curated. The miniature section is incredibly fascinating. Enjoyable for all ages.
  • This museum was a real surprise to me. I'm not a doll or dollhouse guy, but the art and technique that went into the miniatures on the first floor is amazing. You'll be amazed. They also have videos showing how some of the miniatures are made. A real plus! Upstairs they have a huge collection of interesting toys for your childhood, no matter what generation you are in.
  • The miniatures section is impressive and truly stunning, but all the detail can be a lot to process. The toy section is very interesting and offers nostalgia for people of all ages.
  • It has cool toys very old toys too you can also sometimes make crafts.
