From the Mountain Home Wal-Mart, go east on Business 62/412 toward Lake Norfork. Turn north on Cranfield Road for about 1/2 mile. The Museum is on the left.

Miniature Museum of Merritt - Tiny Town

Sixty-two miniature store interiors, including a war museum, New Orleans pool hall, pet shop, Chinese restaurant and 1940's newspaper office. Other tiny exhibits include a Maternity Hospital, Farmers Market, Old Fishing Hole, Zoo, two Christmas villages plus hundreds of tiny pastries and fruit made from buttons, beads, poker chips, etc.

Sixty dollhouses (including an Arkie "Hog Heaven" House) are mostly furnished with "found items" (salt & pepper shakers, pencil sharpeners, advertising items, Barbie stuff, Avon bottles, magnets, toys and more).

All have fully furnished yards (some with outhouses) and streets full of cars and trucks.
