Miniature World, Victoria

Miniature World, Victoria (must see)

As you wander the streets of Victoria, you may stumble upon a seemingly unassuming building. However, as soon as you cross the threshold, you'll be transported into a world of wonder and delight, where animation, lighting and sound effects enhance more than 85 highly detailed miniature scenes.

The amount of time and effort that must have gone into creating each of the intricate displays is truly awe-inspiring. From historical battles to whimsical fairy tales, "Gulliver's Travels" and novels by Charles Dickens, there is something to captivate the imagination of everyone who visits. The attention to detail is simply incredible, and it's easy to get lost in the many layers of each scene.

This is not the kind of place you want to rush through. Give yourself plenty of time to explore and soak up all the magic and wonder that this place had to offer. As you wander through the displays, you will find yourself transported to different worlds and lost in time, with each scene carefully crafted to evoke a specific emotion.

Take your time and press the display buttons. You will watch trains, plane propellers, cars, a trolley, a castle door, goldfish, double-decker buses, a waterwheel (etc.) move within the dioramas.
