Dollhouse Museum

Will appeal to kids, craft hobbyists, and nostalgia lovers. Amazing miniatures and imaginative displays. I was personally wowed by the tiny-yet-detailed chess set.

The Great American Dollhouse Museum

Over 200 miniature houses and buildings, furnished in detail and populated with tiny people at work and play. Housed in a historic national guard armory with 20-foot-high hardwood ceilings and steel bowstring trusses, the dollhouse museum is the only one in America that specializes in U.S. social history in miniature. The most common remark for visitors when they leave is, "That was amazing!"
