The museum has so many exquisitely handcrafted miniatures that one needs to allow at least 2 hours to soak it all in. It was delightful.

There is lots to see here. Give yourself plenty of time to really examine the displays. And be prepared to be amazed. I do think, though, that young children may not fully appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into these exhibits and thus may rush from one to another.

If you like dollhouses and figurines, it's interesting. Some items are not what I'd call miniatures but there are many fascinating pieces too.

This place appealed to everyone in my family, from My mother to my teenager to my four year old. I recommend watching the museum's fun "how to behave" video on their website, especially if you have young people in your group.

From Our Editors

In one corner of the room, a chamber quartet performs baroque music. In another, a man demonstrates his pet poodle's impeccable training. Downstairs, the maid works in the kitchen and a wealthy man shows a child around his library. The thing is, this all takes place in a space no larger than a cinder block. It's just one of the exhibits at The Mini Time Machine Museum, which captures scenes—whether historical, sociological, or fantastical—in stunningly tiny detail.

  • Size: big enough to contain a 1775 English estate, a four-story German household from 1880, an early 20th century toy manufacturer, and a 1559 garden pavilion in Old Shanghai. In other words, small enough to see everything over the course of an hour or two.
  • Eye Catcher: Oddly enough, the most iconic fixture of the museum is the towering Enchanted Tree, which grows in a room full of magical displays. One face smiles over scenes of fairies playing, one scowls in the direction of spooky witches and goblins, and a frost-bearded third oversees vignettes of hard-working elves in Santa's Workshop.
  • Permanent Mainstay: The Snow Village is one of the largest displays in the museum, with 56 lighted buildings that visitors can look down upon through a glass-floor display case.
  • Hidden Gem: Take a close look at the Enchanted Tree—inside, you'll find eight hidden scenes of cozy little mice tucked away within its knots and roots. Wait long enough, and you just might catch a glimpse of the fairy Caitlin, though she comes and goes as she pleases.
  • Don't Miss: the automated house of Emil Wick. Like many of the displays, this 19th-century Swiss village literally bustles with activity thanks to hidden mechanisms; unlike most of those displays, this one dates back to the 1880s.
