Overall, our experience at this museum proved very interesting. However, next time, we wouldn’t bring my son with us. Hopefully, one day when he is older, he will learn to appreciate the true beauty of people’s artistic talents.
Please note: Enclosed pictures were taken from American Museum of the Miniature Arts, which website is indicated above.

In the meantime, I found this display of perfectly replicated homes to be the most interesting thing to see in the Hall of State, but I have always loved doll houses. A student of architecture would enjoy looking at the painstaking detail put into old Victorians and Texas homesteads, but the little girl’s heart is easily entranced by the tiny bag of groceries sitting on a kitchen counter, a mini-person''s canvas in the miniature studio, and the tiny baubles in the jewelry box on a saloon girl’s dresser drawers. Entertaining boys is also not a problem. A miniature French weapons room will interest them . . . not to mention the haunted mansion inhabited by little vampires and ghouls looking through stained glass windows.
Allow at least 20 minutes to walk through the hall of homes, but true miniature lovers will want to linger longer.
Particulars: Entrance is free. Open same hours as Hall of State on bottom floor. For more information, contact: 214/969-5502.
