Miniature World does not make sense, but I am very glad it exists.
Some displays have trains running through them, others have cars that move around or lights that turn on and off. Some displays go from day to night. There are tiny guns shooting out tiny puffs of gun smoke; tiny cows eating tiny pieces of hay; tiny people walking the tiny streets of London in the early (and tiny) 1900s. Miniature World also houses the smallest operating sawmill in the world! It can make chopsticks, basically. Fire codes prevent the sawmill from being operated while on display at the museum, but you get to see it in action via a video filmed sometime in the 1970s.
Here are a bunch of other things you'll see in Miniature World:
- A GIANT display of tiny castles!
- A tiny World War II!
- A tiny and old Toronto!
- A tiny nude model (with not so tiny pubic hair) being painted by a tiny artist!
- Tiny worms wearing even tinier bonnets!
AND SO MUCH MORE. Miniature World is a magical place. And it's just a few blocks away from where the Victoria Clipper docks in Downtown Victoria. Go! Now!
