This is a great attraction for the young and old. . During my visit I enjoyed watching adults and children get lost in their imaginations as they looked upon the minature scenes. They have something for everyone.

This is the place to go for miniatures. Very detailed work on display, and the doll houses were very interesting. My only suggestion is that they have more animation in their displays
