The Michael Garman gallery is a very interesting gallery with a lot to look at. Mr Garman's creativity covers many types of subjects and the gallery is almost like a museum in many respects. Highly recommend visiting.

My 9 year old and I love to come here to look at Magic Town. It is an entire timeless inner city scene featuring sculptures of people, dogs, cats, birds, squirrels, etc. It is detailed down to the newspapers, trash cans, benches, and everything else you would find in a city. All the sculptures are engaged in activities you can... More

I had never heard of this place before, but a Groupon brought me there to check it out. It is really unusual, like a miniature museum in the back of a gallery. They have a fun scavenger hunt that really helps you see all the amazing details put into the exhibits. I highly recommend this for anyone who thinks there's... More

Very nicely done sculptures by Mr. Garman but the Magic Town section is truly wonderful. A little town filled with sculptures with great detail. We truly enjoyed it.

Absolutely fantastic. You walk through a complete town created and sculptured by Michael Garman. The detail is incredible. Bring your camera.

Michael is a GREAT artist! His people sculptures are fantastic! Magic Town has been around for a while (before the technology became more common) and is so cool! People appear and disappear in his dioramas. Most of his characters are for sale as well. Hand painted statues make great gifts! His Police & Firemen are really popular.

A lifetime collection of sculpting American figures. Many different cowboys, soldiers, officers, and many plain folks as well. Be sure to visit Magic Town, an amazing 1:6th scale model of a city with hundreds of figures and interesting special effects. There is a small fee to enter the Magic Town exhibit, but it is totally worth it if you appreciate... More

This is whimsy and art that is not around so much any more. I saw it 25 years ago, and have taken many others over the years. I still enjoy it every time.

We stopped in here one afternoon as I'd read some positive reviews on tripadvisor and thought this would be a great stop for the kids (aged 12, 6, 1). This place did not disappoint, IT WAS AMAZING. The entrance fee was nominal and included a bag of popcorn and a search/spy game for each of the kids. We were there... More

Worth the admission price. These sculptures have been displayed all over the country and represent America in the early 1900s. Interesting use of light and mirrors. The workshop is located at the back of the gallery.
