Visit our museum and allow yourself to be transported into delightful magical miniature worlds. The museum’s collection contains over 600 miniatures including room boxes, houses, and exquisite individual items that have been created with painstaking attention to detail. Museum exhibits change each quarter.
Our Bicentennial exhibit, Hoosier History Told In Miniature, has been so popular that we are extending it through Labor Day. The exhibit is in three rooms of the museum, and includes replicas of “Grand Central Station” in the Underground Railroad, Major Taylor’s bicycle, and the Marmon Wasp, the car that won the first Indy 500. We also have a 1/4-inch version of a recreational vehicle, miniature Hoosier Cabinet and Wooten Desk, as well as displays of an Indiana farmhouse, Depression Glass, our own Thorne room, a river paddle boat, and more.
Our Celebrations of Creativity and Craftsmanship continue throughout the summer on odd-dated Wednesdays at noon. Learn how to play a three-stringed dulcimer, create your own art, and listen to a singer-songwriter from Martinsville.
The museum hosts two workshops for beginners on July 23, 2016. Attendees have their choice of registering for one or both. In the morning from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m., Marti Icenogle will teach participants how to make books in either 1-inch or 1/4-inch scale. In the afternoon from 1:30 p.m. – 4 p.m, Marti will show the class how to make a lady’s dresser set in 1-inch scale. Download a workshop flyer (PDF, 380 KB) for details and registration information.
We have a new exhibit of settings and items pertaining to medicine, all in miniature. Included are a doctor’s office, an at-home doctor’s office, medical reference books, a five-inch tall skeleton, apothecary jars, and more. The exhibit runs through September. See our Exhibits page for more information.
