The Michael Garman Museum & Gallery features over 500 handmade sculptures by Michael Garman honoring American Heroes from all walks of life. Reproductions of Michael Garman's original sculptures are all hand-crafted and finished in the Production Studio located in Garman Building. We offer personalization options to help you create a portrait of the hero in your life. We also house Magic Town - Michael Garman's 3,000 sq-foot sculptural theater. Wander through this miniature city complete with hundreds of hand-sculpted characters, holograms and visual illusions which make the sculptures appear to move throughout the exhibit. Magic Town tells Michael Garman's life story with 7 decades of American History inspired by the artist's vagabond journeys throughout North & South America. All admissions include complimentary popcorn and a scavenger hunt. Guided tours and group discounts available with reservation.

We took visitors here this July including a 2 year old and a 9 year old. Everyone had a great time in Magic Town! Make sure to try the scavenger hunt, you will appreciate the scene much more.

Not only is Michael Garman an excellent sculptor, he has a fantastic eye for every little detail, which is superbly demonstrated throughout everything from individual statues of western themed and everyday people to his massive street scene dioramas. You can't help but be fascinated.

Garman is a master craftsman. I have collected his work for years and seeing it all in one place is wonderful experience. I was amazed that the staff not only allows photography. They encourage it.

The Michael Garman Museum is very unique. The detail that went into the gallery is exceptional. Also, the staff was very friendly and the addition of the scavenger hunt throughout the gallery made the tour even more enjoyable.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the gallery over the years. I have two statuettes from the gallery. One is an aviator another is a firefighter—both are very well done.

About an hour. I stop in about once or twice a year; and have collected a little more than a dozen sculptures.

Adult tickets are $5 a piece. That includes complimentary popcorn and scavenger hunt card. I haven't been able to find any information about children's tickets, but I would assume they are even less expensive.
