Absolutely wonderful. Plan in a couple of hours and listen to a docent if able. Highly recommend a visit if you want to show appreciation of some of the greatest artisans.

Fascinating collection of antiques and modern tiny replicas of things! The antique dollhouses really are like a time machine, capturing what life looked like back to the 1700s. They also have modern pieces and a lot of information about the world of miniature making and collection. We only had 45 minutes but could have spent hours (we enjoyed just the overview, too, if you are short on time). This is a very well done and professionally and well organized presentation!
