We took our visiting grand daughters to the Mini Time Machine Museum and thoroughly enjoyed it. The kids loved the displays and had fun looking for the "hidden fairies". The docents were especially pleasant and helpful. Would certainly recommend a visit.

We truly enjoyed our visit to the Museum of Miniatures. We utilized the Tucson Passport to visit multiple attractions, and this museum was one that we were the most intrigued by. It was a very unique experience and definitely worth seeing.
