Our 7 and 9 year old girls loved it. Great diversion for them in the city. Easily accessible by public transport. The day we were there, they also had a craft activity that enthralled the kids. Definitely a good spot for the kids enjoyment.

I usually bore quickly when it comes to museums that have no dinosaurs (and remarkably, I don't recall this one having even a single dinosaur toy) but this is pretty great. I don't think the Star Wars toys they had on display are there all...More

Going round a house/museum full of miniatures may not seem entertaining or fun to everyone but it is really interesting. The scale models of the houses in the local area are incredible, the collection of circus and clown miniatures were great to see and who...More

We went because it was free and a rainy day. It's something to do but eh a little bizarre. Can't put my finger on why. Only reason you should go is if it's free and there's nothing else to do. Or if you've got a...More

We're sorry you did not enjoy your visit. We are a little quirky and much of an experience can depend on the exhibits we currently have on display. Perhaps if you happen through again on a community day, you'll be able to take advantage of...More

This place was strange but kinda cool. I personally couldn't spend too much time here as dolls and miniatures aren't my thing, but its worth a browse. its also cheap to visit and you're supporting a small local business that preserves historical artifacts.
