Small Stories at the Museum of Miniatures
Pat Arnell had a soft spot for miniatures since the 1930s, but it wasn't until she moved with her husband Walter to Tucson in 1979 that her hobby developed into a full-blown passion. Her collection is now housed in the nonprofit Museum of Miniatures, and it contains over 275 miniature houses and room boxes ranging from the fantastical to the historical. The oldest miniature house in the US (from 1775) is housed here, as well as collections from cultures around the globe. You'll find artistry, history, and creativity in every piece, and each room tells a special story.
