Miniature World continues to delight the young and the young-at-heart with its numerous tiny worlds. Sitting just a short walk from the Inner Harbour, this interactive museum houses dozens of miniature displays and dioramas. Follow the model Great Canadian Railway as it travels across the country or spend some time at the Big Top in the Wonderful World of the Circus display. If you are a literary buff, you'll appreciate a glimpse of the World of Dickens, while time-travel aficionados should check out the Space 2201 AD display.
Although some parents agree Miniature World may not entice toddlers, one TripAdvisor user writes that the museum features "lots of different themes for kids of all ages. They have many realistic replicas of different historical pieces. Overall, worth a visit." Many praise the models' intricate details, but some note that the overall museum could use a facelift.
Miniature World is open every day, but hours vary depending on the season. Admission is $12 CAD (about $12 USD for adults and between $8 CAD and $10 CAD for children. For more information, visit Miniature World's website.
