“Tiny Things Artfully Displayed!”

The Great American Dollhouse Museum in Danville Kentucky: a top-choice destination for families with children, fans of miniatures, and anyone who likes to gawk at tiny things artfully displayed. The Great American Dollhouse Museum showcases over 200 dollhouses, miniature buildings, and room boxes, furnished in remarkable detail and populated with tiny people at work and play.  The Museum’s unique focus is the depiction of American social history in miniature. The Exhibition Hall presents as three major areas. The first, a timeline of United States History from Native American through Colonial, Old West, early Southwest and modern eras, gives the visitor a vivid sense of what it would be like to live in different regions of our country at various times in the past. The second major display area, a complete miniature town circa 1910, includes mansion, business, retail and factory districts as well as a Shaker village. Here, the visitor is lured into detailed fictional stories of the lives and characters of the town. The last section of the Museum contains a heavily forested fantasy land with faeries, elves, witches, trolls and a walk-in dragon cave. It’s just for fun and always well-loved by visitors of all ages.

Great, one of a kind museum that gives a unique perspective into American history. Kids love it and adults find the detail fascinating. I always bring my out of town guests to the museum.
