This amazing museum may display tiny, detail-perfect miniatures, but there is nothing small about this very popular day out which provides a huge amount of fun for all the family. The museum contains collections of quality miniatures from remarkable 1/12 scale copies of antique furniture, paintings and china in beautiful room settings, and everyday items in sizes and details that you just find it hard to believe. The skill and craftsmanship is evident in the collections at the museum which will thrill and delight all visitors and children will be thrilled to see the world’s smallest Teddy Bear. There are over 50 rooms in the museum which include a library, a grand dining room and even a theatre. The museum items are made to an exacting scale of 1/12, so things that would normally be one foot high are now one inch and are precise to the last detail such as tiny dovetail joints and hinges and locks. Magnifying glasses are provided when you enter the museum so that you are able to appreciate these amazing miniatures.
But don’t forget, there’s nothing like seeing the real thing because
