Tiny Town

Tiny Town is closed during the winter. But still cool to park and walk down the road and look in at all the houses even when it's closed.

Tiny Town

Tiny Town is not open year 'round -- check for their schedule before going and being disappointed you can't visit.

Tiny Town & Railroad

This 90-year old attraction, opened in 1920, is made up of a small town of model buildings and streets. More recent additions include a FedEx building and a Harley Davidson dealership, proving that even Tiny Town is not above product placement.

Once inside the gated attraction, you can wander through the streets of Tiny Town like Godzilla through Tokyo (minus the flames and mayhem), visiting tiny vintage gas stations, saloons, school houses, churches, and mansions. Ther's even a scale model of the Addam's Family house that's neat, sweet and, what else, petite!

For an extra dollar, take the miniature train around the town and see the more than 100 miniatures in style.

Tiny Town

On highway 285 west out of Denver. Between Morrison and Conifer. Park with a 100 tiny houses, some replicas of real houses, hotels, churches, stores of earlier times. Some have doors and windows so kids can play in them. Others have miniature people and furnishings. Detail is amazing. Has been around since the 1920s. Was in disrepair for years and then refurbished and reopened a few years ago. Includes a replica of the "hot dog" hot dog stand.

Also has small steam engine which adults and kids can ride for a tour around the outskirts of the "town."

Tiny Town

This is Colorado's smallest metropolis, a historic miniature village of over 100 buildings that has stood on the banks of Turkey Creek since George Turner started building it for his daughter in 1915. Originally it was a fancy place full of little buildings, roadways, fountains and an adult-sized pueblo that burned down in 1935 (Tiny Town itself was saved by a child, 13-year-old Ossie Frazier).

Since 1989 Tiny Town has been open continuously, and features miniature replicas of famous Colorado landmarks including the Coney Island Hot Dog, Stanley Mill, Arvada Flour Mill, The Fort, Argo Gold Mill, and an intricate replica of Denver's former Victorian fire station. Tiny Town also has its own 15-inch gauge train for children and adults to ride around the grounds in.
