Varied and Vast, Something to Interest Everyone
The 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 miniatures, scale model buildings representing architecture and lifestyles, fine arts dollhouses, room-boxes, 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. And there is much, much more to see!
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 1:144 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 replica of the Kellogg Mansion, a grocery store, an auto garage, a Noah’s ark collection, a room in a walnut shell, a murder scene (reminiscent of artist Frances Glessner Lee) and MUCH, MUCH more.
Of course, not all of these will be on display at opening, but some of these Museum treasures will be on exhibited. You will be surprised and amazed at what you discover!
