We spent about an 1-1/2 hours here yesterday afternoon. With my visiting brother, we went to lunch, walked through the town and visited Magic Town. We didn't know what to expect, but Magic Town is delightful. Michael Garman's sculputes of old time America was to amazing to see and appreciate and recall our own small hometown. The staff is very... More

I'm a Colorado native and am embarrassed to say that I had never been to Michael Garmans Museum. Can't believe what I've missed. You will LOVE what you get to experience at this amazing, talented, Artists museum. Michael Garman’s Magic Town is a 3,000 square-foot miniature city. The hundreds of detailed sculptures and cityscapes create a sense of 'home' and... More

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.

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
