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.
We are grateful for support from a variety of sources. Our crowdfunding campaign on Razoo raised more than $2,900 so that we could hire an intern to catalog items and assist with storage of exhibits. Danielle McAdams has finished her project with us. We thank her for a job well done.
We are pleased to announce that we have received a Heritage Support Grant provided by the Indiana Historical Society and made possible by Lilly Endowment Inc. The grant will help us with technology services.
We have two exhibits opening in September and one in October. Hoosiers Making Miniatures opens Sept. 7 and has been named a Legacy Project by the Indiana Bicentennial Commission. The exhibit is sponsored by DWA Healthcare Communications Group. Concurrent is Hidden Treasures, items in the museum’s collection that have rarely or never been shown. In October, we open Fashion Dolls from the Private Collection of Elizabeth Kraft Taylor, comprising fifty 14-inch dolls dressed in fabulous fashions by designers such as Jason Wu.
We are grateful for a recent donation from Carmel Glass and Mirror, Inc. Carmel Glass and Mirror was founded on the principles of service and quality by Ken and Mary Lou Schweitzer in April of 1980. From a modest beginning, the company has expanded to be a leading glass and mirror specialist in Indianapolis and the surrounding area.
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
