LaReau's World of Miniature

I went to LaReau's World of Miniature in the 1990s while a student at Madison. Very cool. I still have the brochure.

LaReau's closed in 2004. The brochure documents the construction time for each building (Wisconsin Farmhouse - 67 hours; The White House - 385 hours). The mom 'n pop attraction's hat-waving, bespectacled globe logo was one of our favorites.

La Reau's World of Miniature - Closed

We went to see La Reau's World of Miniature in July, 2004 and some locals told us it had been closed for two years and didn't know why it had closed. We went anyway and knocked on the door of the owners' house, but they weren't home. We managed a peek through the fence, but there are a lot of Keep Out - type signs posted.
