Varied and Vast, Something to Interest Everyone
Midwest Miniatures Museum is unique in Michigan. It preserves and exhibits a collection of fine art miniatures. Creations include (but are not limited to) life-like miniature dolls, scale model buildings representing architecture and lifestyles, fine art dollhouses, room-boxes (vignettes of individual miniature rooms or scenes), historical reproductions, and other specialized exhibits. There are also collections of individual pieces of miniature art–most notable are the Kachina doll and fine silver collections.
MMM showcases artistic reproductions in a variety of styles and scales. The largest scale is 1 inch equals 1 foot or 1:12 scale. Other displays decrease in size. The smallest is a 1:144 scale. That would depict a 1:12 scale “toy” dollhouse placed inside a 1:12 dollhouse.
The Museum also has a collection of over 200 miniature kachinas dolls, a crystal shop, two quilt shops, a mid-century modern multi-story home, a grocery store, an auto garage, a recreation of Vincent van Gogh’s famous yellow house, a collection of historically accurate medical rooms, a room in a walnut shell, and MUCH, MUCH more.
The exhibitions at the grand reopening will feature a few of the Museum’s finest treasures from its permanent collection. You will be amazed at what you discover!
