Introduction

To step inside the Miniatures Museum is to feel as if you have grown into a giant, though in fact the world has just shrunken around you. This museum was founded by Lin Wen-jen and Lin Chin-mei, a married couple with a passion for small things. The Lins traveled the world to build up their impressive collection of fine miniatures. Works from Europe and America join local creations to present a lilliputian world big in wonder.

    Miniatures are impressive. I bought tiny souvenirs in the gift shop for coworkers. I was more impressed by the gift shop than anything else. Spent about an hour here. The landmark minis were my favorites.

    Spent extensive amount of time there. I am very impressed with the display and concepts. Wonderful details and attentions except for one spotted spelling mistake.

    We recently visited this museum during a holiday trip to Taiwan. I think it is worth a one time visit for anyone looking for something unique. The museum houses many miniature exhibits and there is detailed explanation for each. I am not really into reading the details and history of each but was curious to see the exhibit. The detailing done for some of the exhibit is amazing. I even sent some close-ups of the rooms and sent it to some of my friends and told them this was the suite we were staying at. Based on their comments they believed that was really our accommodation. Would recommend it for a one time visit and opportunity to take some nice pictures.

    It's a must for collectors or miniatures lover. The details of these miniatures being displayed at the museum definitely worth your time and ticket fees. This museum is located on the basement of a commercial building, upon arriving to this building you will see a pillar with advertisement of this museum, surely you can see that walking towards the building using your google map or other apps. Once you read the entrance, you need to go downstairs and get your ticket, then the entrance is just next to the counter. This place will take 1hour to finish the tour depending on your speed and interest on these. I must say the details on these miniatures are just amazing, some are collected long ago and some are new, they also have a My Comic Era which you can enjoy collector's item of Ultraman and others.

    So-so. Did not meet expectations.

    Like others, I have mixed feelings about the Miniature Museum of Taipei. Perhaps there is a novelty factor since this one is located in Asia with a focus on Western items, but having thoroughly enjoyed places like the Thorne Miniature rooms at the Art Institute of Chicago and Gulliver's Gates in New York City, this one left me disappointed. Some of the miniature rooms created by Ray Whitledge & Brooke Turner were quite nice as were the large scale models of Buckingham Palace & Hall of Mirrors (Versailles), but I wasn't a fan of the fairy tale productions, the random doll collections, etc., The lack of a cohesive theme also bothered me. The gift shop, however, is quite remarkable for the miniature tools/pieces they sell, which you normally don't see in these exhibits and I also found some unique Taiwan souvenirs, which was a welcome surprise. Also, be aware, the museum is in an office building. There is now a huge poster/sign at the front of the building which helps, but I still had some difficulties locating the place. In the end, I agree with others this might be worthwhile to visit on a rainy day during an extended stay in Taipei, but your money would be better spent checking out the National Palace Museum.
