A very happy stop! It was fun to find all of the scenes of tiny people hidden in this very nicely kept, colorful alley.

Tiniest Museum in Mississippi

It was a wow! My family loved it; not just the tiny museum, but the whole alley is full of surprises. Half inch figures live amazing lives in the cracks in the bricks or on electrical boxes. Even Spider-Man was there. There's a mural on the parking garage, 3-D art on the pavement. We visited early on a Sunday morning and had the place to ourselves. There was a lot of "Come here and look at this!" as each of us made discoveries. An amazing place to visit.

The "museum" is inside a glass display case set into an alley wall, but additional exhibits have apparently spilled into the alley itself.
