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 have two important announcements. The first concerns the rescheduling of a free talk in conjunction with our Furnishing Touch exhibit. The second concerns museum admission prices.
First, we are pleased to announce that we have been able to reschedule Robert Brandt’s talk, “The Pillar and the Scroll: American Empire,” about furniture in the early to mid-19th Century. You are welcome to join us on Tuesday, May 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the museum. The lecture is made possible by a grant from the Indiana Humanities Initiative and is free to the public.
The Board of Directors has approved increases in the price of admission to the Museum of Miniature Houses effective June 1, 2017. “In the past few years, we have had to hire two full-time staff members, and have added more special events, increased the number of temporary exhibits, created new programming, expanded our outreach and increased our community impact, all to share the art of fine scale miniatures with the public,” said Suzanne Moffett, co-founder and president of the board.
Admissions account for only 7.8% of the museum’s income. The rest is earned through memberships, grants, sales in the shop, and donations from individuals and businesses in our community, all of which are slated for increases in order to maintain a balanced budget for the museum, a non-profit organization that opened to the public in 1993.
New prices will be $10 for general admission, $8 for seniors 65 and over and/or military, $5 children aged 4 to 9, and still free to children aged three and under.
Although daily admission prices are going up, the prices of annual memberships are staying the same!
Memberships still start at only $25 a year at the Friend level, which gives the member unlimited free admission, subscription to “Friends” newsletter, invitations to special events, and access to the museum library. A Family membership remains $45 a year, which grants all of the Friends benefits plus the option of bringing up to three guests at any one time. If you do the math, that’s less than $4 a month for unlimited visits. A family of three could cover membership costs in only two visits!
