Bring a camera - the miniatures are very well done (locally). The items are preserved very well. The miniature car collection is awesome as well.

We had driven from Calgary to Nanton to view the Bomber Command Museum and we also stopped at this attraction Glad we did. Detailed dioramas reflecting Alberta's past. Very unique and interesting. Thoroughly enjoyed the displays as well as chatting with the owner and artist.

When we first walked in, we expected only to visit the gift shop but the owners were so engaging that we went through the museum too. At $9 an adult and nothing for a 4 year old, we didn't think that was too expensive. We...More

Really enjoyed my visit to this place today. The miniatures had so much detail. The owners had some great stories to share. It was worth the money.

This is a very cute place to visit. So much effort has been taken to fulfil every little detail. Any age would enjoy it.

The outside of the building totally belies what is inside. It is done with great attention, love and care. We took our children there one afternoon and could hardly get them out again.

A strange and unique place to visit, with history told using miniatures. The museum attracts school groups, and families on outings. The hours are varying.

I wasn't too sure what to expect from this location. While it received great ratings on TripAdvisor for its small museum I was still sceptical. The cost to go was about 18$ for two people. We thought this was really steep for the size of...More
