Friday:10:00 - 18:00




To step inside the Miniatures Museum is to feel as if you have grown into a giant, though in fact the world has just shrunken around you. This museum was founded by Lin Wen-jen and Lin Chin-mei, a married couple with a passion for small things. The Lins traveled the world to build up their impressive collection of fine miniatures. Works from Europe and America join local creations to present a lilliputian world big in wonder.

    Nice, Unique museum


    I was very interesting. There were lots of miniatures to look at in exquisite detail. Very enjoyable.

    Extremely rude woman at front desk


    Worst experience ever and I have taken my two kids many many places in Taipei. My very responsible 8 year old daughter asked for a $20 book just after we entered the museum to collect stamps in. I sent her back with the money. She was less than 2 meters away from me while I watched my 3 year old. I was subsequently summoned by the woman at the front desk who lectured me ( in front of other visitors) on not letting my kids run around and that they could get lost. How rude and patronizing. Why not just give her the book ( she had asked in Chinese). Why the need to lecture someone on their parenting skills when I was standing less than two meters away and watching my three year old. Totally ruined our stay there. They need to change their attitude towards paying customers. Nobody wants to be spoken to like that. We did absolutely nothing wrong. I’m absolutely appalled by this lady’s rude and obnoxious manner. Avoid this place if you have kids. Have since read other reviews from people who say staff were also rude and unfriendly to their children. It’s not always easy taking two kids out on your own. Have some consideration!

    My Personal Favourite Museum


    You have to bring out your inner child when you visit this unique museum, and it is quite amazing to see everything downsized so proportionately. To get to this museum, you take exit 5 of Songjiang Nanjing Rd metro stop, walk to Yitong Rd, turn right, walk through Yitong Park and one block further towards a main street. The museum is located inside an office building in the lower level. Open 10-6 for anyone interested. I love the whimsy of this museum, appreciate the work involved to make miniatures this small. There was even the tiniest 2” TV screen which was actually a working TV screen. The chandeliers in all these dioramas had the tiniest light bulbs in them and working too. There were scenes of villages from the 18th, 19th centuries, of beloved stories like Alice in Wonderland, of fairy stories, Pinocchio, many others. My favourites were just little living rooms in miniature. There was one modern little kitchen donated from Richmond, BC. I also loved a cutaway of Buckingham Palace showing 3 floors of furnished rooms in miniature. Even more amazing was Louis XIV’s Palace of Versaille’s Hall of Mirrors in miniature. This museum remains one of my favourites.

    A gem of a museum.


    If you’re into dollhouses you’ve got to stop here. I personally liked the storybook dioramas — Gulliver’s Travels, Alice in Wonderland, Jack and the Beanstalk — best, but the dolls, dollhouses and models of iconic buildings — the White House, Versailles — are terrific as well. Miniatures aficionados will think they’ve died and gone to heaven when they step into the gift shop.

    Miniatures are impressive. I bought tiny souvenirs in the gift shop for coworkers. I was more impressed by the gift shop than anything else. Spent about an hour here. The landmark minis were my favorites.
