You don't see things like this museum terribly often. Such a unique collection of toys that - if you're old like me - really brings back great memories from your childhood. Admission is very reasonable and you can easily spend a few hours here depending...More
We went to the National toy and miniature museum and weren’t sure what to expect. The miniatures which mostly have to do with doll houses are incredible. Things like French styled rooms in miniature, sewing rooms with miniature quilting tools . Take a magnifying glass...More
Lost track of the "Oh Wows" from myself and other visitors as they entered the different exhibit areas. Truly a place of imagination and exemplary skills. The craftsmen must love what they have accomplished for us to enjoy. Lots of fun to see the miniature...More
I thought this museum was going to be like a antique mall. Boy was I surprised. Very nice miniatures and other toys. Can't believe how tiny some of them were.
Spent a hour and half there. Even my husband liked it.

I love looking at miniatures and this place does not disappoint. Lots of interesting info on how the miniatures are made - especially a great video about a tiny candlestick. The workmanship that goes into these pieces is astonishing. The rest of my family was...More
I wasn’t sure my teenage kids would enjoy the museum but we were pleasantly surprised! The museum is really well done, very clean, and good for both boys and girls. (Mine are 12 year old boy and 15 year old girl) We spent more than...More
Honestly it really depends on the kid. You can't play with the things, just look at them. I'd say at least 8 but I think it will appeal to adults (with the intricacy of the miniatures) more than younger kids.
