A little museum filled with amazing miniatures. This place really could use more space for displays. It feels cramped & someone in a wheelchair would have a very difficult time.

This place is within someone's house and it's on the ground level. The amount of miniature items and the detail work that has gone into making them is outstanding. Someone has had steady hands to work on these. Models ranging from houses, cars, landscapes, etc....More

This is on the grounds of the Gilmore Car Museum but they are separate. They have a donation jar. Kind of boring.

Was visiting the Gilmore Car Museum and came upon this museum. Great collection, including some excellent displays. Worth the visit. At first we went because of my grand-daughter's interest. Both my grand-daughter and grandson enjoyed their visit. Hard to give it a 5 star rating...More

They are not part of the Gilmore museum and even though they do not charge they are asking for a donation. The miniatures are outstanding. The detail in each display is unreal.
