Founded on March 28, 1997, the Miniatures Museum of Taiwan is the first theme museum in Asia dedicated to contemporary miniature art.
The Miniature Museum has collected the best masters’ miniature works around the world, and its scale is also world-class. The various collections with over 200 pieces have been displayed by different themes such as the Dollhouse which shows the interior and exterior design of the building, the Roombox which exquisitely portrayed each kind of rooms, and the many interesting theme works. From the ruins of Rome, the magnificent scene of the Roman Empire two thousand years ago, the cozy million dollars apartments of celebrities in the US in the 1990s, the romantic atmosphere of Venice in Italy, the luxurious Buckingham Palace and the slums in the eastern suburbs of London to the Snow White in the fairytale, wandering in the museum is like walking into an exotic time and space tunnel.
The pocket art from the German royal palace in the sixteenth century has spread throughout Europe and North America. These small pieces of art works from the biggest buildings to the tiniest keys on the desk are strictly adhered to a specific size that is 1/12 of the real object, the mainstream size scale in the world. The most precious thing is that the miniature works are mimicked from real life. In addition to the people and animals, the one-centimeter bottle is filled with real brandy, and the stamp-sized oil painting is mimicked from the real oil painting as well as cabinets, seats, sheets, porcelain, glass, metal, wallpaper, crystal light, etc. Of course, there is also children's favorite mini-TV. Everything is made from its real-life version.
