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.

    My Personal Favourite Museum

    2020-02

    You have to bring out your inner child when you visit this unique museum, and it is quite amazing to see everything downsized so proportionately. To get to this museum, you take exit 5 of Songjiang Nanjing Rd metro stop, walk to Yitong Rd, turn right, walk through Yitong Park and one block further towards a main street. The museum is located inside an office building in the lower level. Open 10-6 for anyone interested. I love the whimsy of this museum, appreciate the work involved to make miniatures this small. There was even the tiniest 2” TV screen which was actually a working TV screen. The chandeliers in all these dioramas had the tiniest light bulbs in them and working too. There were scenes of villages from the 18th, 19th centuries, of beloved stories like Alice in Wonderland, of fairy stories, Pinocchio, many others. My favourites were just little living rooms in miniature. There was one modern little kitchen donated from Richmond, BC. I also loved a cutaway of Buckingham Palace showing 3 floors of furnished rooms in miniature. Even more amazing was Louis XIV’s Palace of Versaille’s Hall of Mirrors in miniature. This museum remains one of my favourites.

    A gem of a museum.

    If you’re into dollhouses you’ve got to stop here. I personally liked the storybook dioramas — Gulliver’s Travels, Alice in Wonderland, Jack and the Beanstalk — best, but the dolls, dollhouses and models of iconic buildings — the White House, Versailles — are terrific as well. Miniatures aficionados will think they’ve died and gone to heaven when they step into the gift shop.

    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.

    Extremely detailed miniatures

    2019-12

    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.
