The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures – Tucson, Arizona

The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures promotes the artistry and conserves the history of miniatures.

Founded by Patricia and Walter Arnell, the museum is a not-for-profit organization established to tell the stories of different places and times in history, in miniature. The collection of vintage and contemporary objects includes dolls, sculptures, small-scale dioramas, and other artifacts. The 15,000-square-foot facility houses a permanent collection and hosts temporary exhibits to spotlight the work of independent artists and celebrate special occasions, such as Halloween and Christmas.

Visits to the museum are self-guided, and audio tours provide deeper insight to the collections. Work is underway to make the full collection available online.
