Sunday: 10:00 – 18:00




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.

    Great pieces from Brooke Tucker and Ray Whitledge


    A great stop if you are in Taipei on a rainy day. Wouldn’t go out of the way if you are pressed, but if you are in Taipei for an extended period, there are some excellent artistic pieces. Not all are great, but the ones that are in the wall by Brooke Tucker and Ray Whitledge are must sees! See the pics!

    First Miniature Museum


    I have never been to a miniature museum before and was out exploring Taipei by myself for a day so I thought I would check it out. I don't know anything about miniatures, but I found the museum to be very interesting..they have quite a never of impressive displays of miniature houses and the detail in some of them is amazing! I spent about an hour and a half there and took my time examining each scene. They have good AC as well! That's always a plus in the Taiwanese summertime! And if you're from the US, it's fun to spot brands and things. I found Rugrats on a TV, a copy of Penthouse magazine, Domino brand sugar, and several other interesting miniatures.

    Interesting place if you like figurines and such


    Lots of figurines and familiar scenes and layouts. Good for the entry price. Worthwhile to visit if you are in the area.

    Beautiful collection of miniatures


    Unless you like miniatures (especially of houses), you really won't find this museum interesting. But if you do, then you'd find this museum very interesting and you'd be impressed with the attention to the smallest details the miniaturists have put into their creation. This museum is quite small, but the collection compensates for it. Some of the collections are arranged thematically (for example, by fairy tale accounts, by musical genres, by historical events, etc.). I personally found the place interesting albeit it was quite hard to locate it and the entrance fee was pretty expensive.
