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 featured exhibit is The ‘Furnishing’ Touch, which tells a history of American home furnishings in miniature. Home furnishing styles were influenced by functional demands, means of production, and lifestyle behavior of the time. The exhibit traces styles beginning with The Mannerist style (1600-1700) that was popular with English settlers in America and ending with the Colonial Revival style that started in the 1870s and is still found in popular home trends today. This exhibit is supported by an Indiana Humanities Initiative grant that also allows the Museum to host three speakers who will deliver presentations on furniture and domestic life in March and April. See our events page for dates and speakers.
If you are in the area, please join us every second and fourth Wednesday for Celebrations of Creativity and Craftsmanship. The sessions take place at noon so that people can spend their lunch hour with us and will be on at 111 East Main Street, Carmel, in our front room. We have had violists, guitarists, singer/songwriters, poets, and painters to name a few. Specific programming for each session is posted on both the Museum’s Facebook page and this web site. Also, if you would like to present/perform, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our annual Attic Sale takes place on Saturday, April 29. This is a great opportunity to buy miniature accessories, craft supplies, and special gifts. This year’s sale includes a large selection of miniature furniture, accessories, dolls, dollhouses, kits, and supplies. We have two locations: Carmel Lion’s Club, 141 East Main Street and Museum of Miniature Houses, 111 East Main Street. Stop by between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to get your bargains. Want a preview of what you can expect to find in our Attic Sale? See our Events page for a link to photos of sample items.
Play Pokemon Go at the Museum of Miniature Houses
Did you know we are a gym?
We welcome players who pay the $5 admission fee so you can come in and battle!
You will get free admission on another visit if you do one of two things: Take over the gym (and show your screen verification to the docent on duty) or if you send a screen shot of the Pokemon you caught at the Museum (has to have a verifiable Museum image or display in the shot) to email@example.com. The docent will note your name and email and when you come in the next time, your gym time is on us.
Have fun with us and good luck! #minimuseumIN
